About Davies & Robson

About Davies & Robson

History

The British economy was facing a downturn after the post war boom ended in 1919. Although unemployment was increasingly growing this did not deter George Davies & Mark Robson, railway freight clerks, from launching their advisory service for freight rates in 1920.

Davies & Robson emerged into the market at precisely the right time. Merely a few months after their start up, the Government introduced the Railways Act of 1921 which saw the fragmented network of local railway companies grouped into four major regional organisations. They quickly noticed a business opportunity stemming from the prospect of a complete revision of rates and charging methods. In 1968 Davies & Robson saw the fundamental change in the licensing system for road transport and the birth of the logistics industry as we know it today.
