Johnston Logistics UK - About Us

Large Enough to Depend On – Small Enough to Care

Having first delivered warehousing for grain in 1978 – followed by Jeyes cleaning products and flat pack furniture – we’ve spent the next four decades building our skills and experience to become renowned UK-wide logistics experts.

Whilst always maintaining our family-owned feel, we’ve grown into a highly professional company which invests in its staff, embraces innovation and puts delivering its promises before all else.

As a Primary Consolidation Centre for ASDA Walmart, we’re partnered with some of the largest names in UK retail, helping them deliver goods to millions of customers across the UK. We’re fortunate to have also helped start-up companies grow into household names and continue to offer accessible solutions to those just beginning their journey.

Each year we handle over 1,000,000 transactions and 200,000 pallets in our 640,000 square feet modern facilities. Our valued customers receive a first-class service from a named team of people who truly care about customer satisfaction.

Location

Johnston Logistics UK is located on the former site of RAF Snetterton Heath, on the A11 in Norfolk.

Situated in the heart of East Anglia, on the Cambridge-Norwich corridor, we’re ideally situated near the major east coast ports, with easy access to London, the Midlands and the whole UK. We even have our own private rail siding running off the Cambridge-Norwich mainline.

Snetterton Heath airfield was constructed by Taylor Woodrow in 1942, at a cost of £950,000. It featured three solid runways and fifty ‘frying pan’ hardstands. Given over to the United States Army Air Force, it became home to 386th & 96th Bombardment Groups. Their Martin B-26 Marauders and Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses flew thousands of bombing missions across northern Europe.

The airfield closed in 1948 and has been partly taken over by commerce & industry. The remainder is now home to one of the UK’s most popular motor racing circuits.
