H. Parkinson Haulage tractor units and trailers have been a familiar sight on the roads of Britain for over 65 years. Founded by Harry Parkinson, the HPH Group began as a family-run business, H. Parkinson Haulage, back in 1953.
Although we now have an ever-growing team of over 150 employees and two key operation sites in the UK, family still forms the core of HPH, and each and every employee is a valued part of the HPH family.
When the business was in its early years, HPH was known to provide niche logistics solutions for major clients in the paper industry. Over the decades our service capacity has expanded considerably, and we now work with bluechip companies in a multitude of commercial sectors.
