Why we’re different

The new face of forwarding since 1974

Since our founding in 1974 Unsworth has been embracing change by evolving to meet challenges and turning them into opportunities for our clients, exploring new technology to unload ships after the introduction of containerisation, launching our leading consolidation services when China acceded to the WTO, innovating packaging technology to revolutionise car transport and digitalisation in the last two decades, always putting the customer at the heart of everything we do.

It’s all about you

Our technology lets customers manage complex supply chains. With Unsworth there’s no need to ask. You Just Know.

It’s about us too

You can’t deliver great customer service for 45 years without having the right attitude, values and team. Our success in consistently delivering the highest levels of service has been instrumental in our continuous growth. While our group turnover may have escalated impressively we remain an independent family business, with the same commitment to our customers and colleagues. In fact, Unsworth has won multiple awards for our staff development programmes and been awarded the industry accolade of Employer of the Year for consecutive years.

It’s about all of us

Our multilingual team has wide-ranging experience across a range of freight, logistics and technology disciplines. But they all share one trait, they are passionate about their customers and what they do for them. For four decades, we have been empowering our people and providing them with the freedom to deliver the best possible solutions to their customers. No bureaucracy, just quick decisions to help us serve you better.

We reflect you

We know that to continue delivering exceptional customer experiences, we must create a culture in which we all remain committed to a shared vision of our brand promise and values. Which is why our mission, vision and customer promise has been shaped directly by the whole Unsworth team and their experience in working with you. Through extensive, confidential and open feedback sessions, we exposed weaknesses to address and strengths to build on. Your candour has served us well.
