General & Commercial Manager
Phil Plowman and Mike Wigley launched Orchid Transport in 1988 after many years in the transport industry, and together with Paul Nethercot, they direct Orchid Customer Services.
We specialise in full load container haulage from Southampton and Felixstowe, and are developing services from London Gateway in conjunction with our Felixstowe operation. In addition to our port transport services, we have localised vehicles to support our customers use of rail into West Midlands and Leeds/Wakefield rail centres.
We make considerable use of rail as appropriate and have committed rail space to and from the West Midlands. Our vehicles can be deployed across the U.K. from serviced ports.
Following enquiries from our FCL customers, we are launching LCL groupage services from September 2017 covering all U.K. locations.
Orchid HQ Midlands & Northern Office is in Kenilworth, Warwickshire at the hub of the UK motorway network and close to Birmingham.Divisional operations are based on Felixstowe and Southampton.
