Premier Logistics is celebrating 20 years in business this month, with ambitions to continue growing the company by up to 10% by the end of the decade.

The Leicestershire operator has grown from small beginnings to trading from a 200,000sq ft hub in Coalville specialising in supply chain logistics with a £13m turnover.

Founder Lee Christopher said he intended to grow Premier Logistics by between 7% and 10% between now and 2029 and become renowned for being the best employer in the East Midlands.

The haulier already takes care of its team of warehouse operatives, drivers and office staff with a free on-site gym, welfare facilities, and regular social events.

MD Christopher said: “We are proud to reach this significant milestone in our company’s history. We’ve been planning our celebrations for over a year to treat our staff.

“The past 20 years have been filled with challenges, growth and, most importantly, success.

“We owe our achievements to the unwavering support of our clients, the dedication of our team, and a commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the logistics industry.”

The team said it would celebrate the milestone in the last weekend of May with a family fun day at Coalville Rugby Club, which Premier Logistics sponsors.
