Welcome to Downton

C M Downton Ltd is one of the UK’s leading privately-owned logistics firms.

The business has established itself at the forefront of a highly competitive industry by offering clients what they cannot get from other providers: the infrastructure and scalability of a multi-national 3PL combined with the flexibility, agility and commitment to customer care of a family-run business.

In 2018, Downton was acquired by EmergeVest allowing for further innovation and continued investment.

The Downton philosophy is simple: no matter what the request, Downton will deliver. Keeping to this principle has seen the business win and maintain long-term contracts with major global companies and achieve consistent, significant growth for over a decade.
