Our History

Our History

From a one-man operation to an impressive fleet

Over 20 years of delivering on our promises, VLT has become one of the most trusted and recognised logistics companies in the UK. Our successful history is intrinsically linked to our family values.

Founded in 1996 by Vernon Land with one 7.5 tonne curtain side, he grew the business into a large-scale operation and quickly became a significant business and employer in the West Yorkshire region.

Vernon began to purchase more and more vehicles and expanded the offering of the business to include warehousing and storage as well as transportation.

Through over 20 years of hard work and determination, VLT Logistics grew steadily year on year and became the business it is today.

In 2009, Andrew Land joined the business to assist in the development of VLT Logistics. The addition of a second generation of the Land family has helped to drive the business even further, approaching logistics, warehousing and transportation through modern eyes.

The strong family values and business ethos instilled by Vernon Land is still present in the business today. Failure is not an option when it comes to delivering exceptional customer care.  VLT Logistics prides itself on consistent delivery of high-quality logistical and warehousing services, providing cost-effective and long-term solutions to a growing number of customers across the UK.

VLT Logistics is the type of business that believes you’re more than just a pallet on a truck, and that’s why we take extra care in ensuring your business has the opportunity to talk to a real person and get to know your account manager. Your business is our business, and that’s why we strive in delivering the most efficient transportation and warehouse services through cost-effective and flexible solutions.

We employ 50+ people from across West Yorkshire, and have an impressive fleet of 40+ vehicles, 170,000 square feet of modern warehousing space and has the ability to deliver any load of any size.
