Third party logistics provider Knowles Transport has changed its name to Knowles Logistics to better reflect the range of services the company offers, including its warehousing division, which now accounts for almost 40% of the business.
The Cambridgeshire-based company, which offers end-to-end supply chain logistics solutions across the UK, currently boasts over 2.5 million sq ft of storage space and provides warehousing services to a variety of customers within the ambient food sector.
Knowles Logistics said it has seen significant growth in recent years which it attributes largely to a combination of UK wide capacity shortages and the expansion of its customer portfolio, which includes major brands such as Silver Spoon, Nestle, Princes, and Kinnerton Confectionery.
It added that, with this in mind, it has taken the strategic decision to change the company name to better communicate the full extent of its capabilities and recognise the strength of its warehousing arm, alongside its wide range of transportation services.

Alex Knowles, Knowles Logistics managing director, said: “The change to Knowles Logistics comes at a poignant moment for the business. The unprecedented growth of our warehousing division has motivated us to review the name of the business and take stock of how we are perceived by both the industry and our much-valued customers.
“Following this review, we as a business recognised the need to change our company name in order to better reflect the diverse array of services we offer, especially in regard to our warehousing associated services.
“With warehousing solutions now accounting for a near 40% of current revenue, it felt appropriate to give this area of the business the recognition it deserved reflecting it being a vital component of our service portfolio.
"We are enthused to enter this new chapter of the Knowles success story and to accurately convey the full extent of our capabilities to both our customers and the industry as a whole.”
