About Us

Back in the 70’s and 80’s, finding a freight service outside of normal business hours was a challenge. That all changed when Paul Jones founded Heathrow Weekend Freight Services in 1981. By offering a weekend service, he went the extra mile and quickly discovered that customers were thrilled with this convenience. In fact, they were so satisfied with Paul’s personal touch, reliability, and efficiency that they demanded the service extend beyond just weekends. And so, despite the name, Heathrow Weekend Freight Services started operating 7 days a week.

Paul had a mission: to earn his customers’ lifetime loyalty by solving logistical problems at the best price and always delivering on time. Word of mouth soon spread about the exceptional freight forwarding service provided by HWFS. As a result, the business expanded, and to this day, many of those early customers remain loyal to the company. HWFS caters to a wide range of industries, including Aviation, Automotive, Pharmaceuticals, Energy, and Industrial, and even highly bespoke services for high net worth private clients. In 2009, HWFS evolved into HWFS 24:7 express, reflecting their commitment to being available for customers around the clock, all year round, no matter the size of the job.

Having joined HWFS in 1996, Paul’s son, Bradley Jones, took over the helm in 2008 and continues to maintain the company’s core values of efficiency, reliability, and excellence in customer service while propelling the business to new heights. Today, founder Paul Jones remains a shareholder, board director, and an inspiration to the team, occasionally visiting the office to share his expertise. However, he is now more likely to be found on a golf course in the Algarve!

In 2022, we relocated to our new and expanded premises at the North Feltham Trading estate. Our facility underwent extensive refurbishment to better suit our needs, includes a spacious warehouse and a thriving breakout room.
