About us

Allan Morris Transport was established in 1893 as a coal and agricultural contractor, based in Saltney, near Chester. Under the ownership of the Morris family, the business developed into one of Cheshire’s largest coal companies. After WWII, the company moved to Liverpool Road in Chester and was sold by the Morris family in 1973 to the Lancashire Cooperative, who subsequently sold the business to Amalgamated Anthracite Holdings (AAH) in 1979.

The company evolved into a major road transport company, builders’ merchant, oil distribution and coal factoring company. It was then acquired in 1983 by Brian Lee who focussed the business on bulk haulage.

Allan Morris Transport was one of the first transport companies in the UK to introduce moving floor trailers. The company has continued to grow and develop as a leading provider of haulage solutions through continuous investment and improvement.

In 2008, AM Recycling Ltd was established to develop the range of services offered to the recycling industry and became the first dedicated mixed paper sorting operation in the UK.

In 2017, both Allan Morris Transport Ltd and AM Recycling Ltd were sold as part of a management buyout with Brian Lee retiring and the then directors taking ownership of the company.

In 2018, we invested over £3.5 million in a state-of-the-art twin line sorting facility, with the ability to produce mill size bales from our baler and the storage capacity to manage customers’ needs. These investments, and the commitment of our employees, ensures today we offer a complete service solution from sorting to dispatch.
