Welcome To S & J

Started in 1980 by husband and wife team Steve and Jane Haines with just a single van, S&J European Haulage has grown to a fleet of 40 vehicles from tail lift vans up to articulated trailers. Over three decades later with Steve and Jane now joined by their children Matt and Sarah, we continue to be a forward thinking family company. We offer dedicated vehicles and groupage all around the UK and as an owner member of Palletline, the UK’s most dependable pallet distribution network, we deliver time sensitive next day or economy deliveries throughout the UK.

Our specialist service to Ireland allows us to offer faster than airfreight deliveries to Ireland. Utilising partnerships built up over many decades, we deliver freight to destinations all over Europe. Our instant access online portal allows customers to book consignments and view proof of deliveries online.

Our customers value our reliable, cost effective and easy to use service. They also value the close working relationship that we build with them; far beyond the standard supplier / buyer relationship. We work with our customers to find tailor made solutions for their distribution requirements underpinned by our commitment to a friendly, quality performance.
