Doing our bit

In response to the Coronavirus, Baxter Freight remains open, operational and ready to help.

Baxter Freight and the entire UK logistics sector continues to play a vital role during these difficult times. Keeping supply chains open is essential to the UK economy and ensuring our supermarkets and hospitals are fully stocked with urgent supplies.

In line with the UK Government’s clear instruction to stay at home, our entire team of 80 people are now working from home and doing our bit to help slow the spread of the virus, protect our NHS and hopefully save lives. Our team has worked incredibly hard these past few days to ready us for this moment.

We are therefore pleased to confirm we are operating normally – although shipments to and from the worst affected countries are, understandably, subject to some delays.

Our commitment to market leading customer service and our extensive network of long-term partners and suppliers means we are in a great position to offer you the most suitable transport solution, even in these challenging conditions. We’ve been extremely encouraged by the volumes we are handling and the resilience and flexibility of our network.

Our Chairman, Ian Baxter recorded a message last week to thank customers, suppliers and our team for their ongoing support.

Should you have any questions, or would like to make a booking, please contact us in the usual way by calling 0115 975 0400 or email us at

Keep well and stay safe!
