Eddie Stobart

Shipping Company

Eddie Stobart Logistics Ltd (trading as Eddie Stobart) is a large multimodal logistics company, with interests in road haulage, rail freight, deep sea and inland waterway transport systems, and deep sea port, inland port. and rail-connected storage facilities, along with transport, handling, and warehousing facilities through operations in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Belgium. The company has its operational head office in Warrington, Cheshire.

Started by 'Steady' Eddie Stobart in the late 1940s as an agricultural business in Cumbria, the company was incorporated as Eddie Stobart Ltd. on 23 November 1970 as a haulage firm, eventually passing to his son, Edward Stobart. After a series of complex takeovers, the Stobart company has developed from a haulage company to an intermodal logistics company, achieving a stock market listing without an IPO through a reverse takeover of the Westbury Property Fund. In 2014, the logistics part of the company regained majority private ownership when Douglas Bay Capital bought a 51% share in the business from the Stobart Group, which remains publicly traded. Following the step down of Edward in 2003, the Stobart family is now represented in the business by Edward's brother William Stobart.
