Our history

Our beginnings

The company began operating in 1995 when a young Ross Taylor took his hobby of buying and selling vehicles out into the real world. Initially operating two temperature regulated vans from the family farm in the Cambridgeshire Fens, Ross Taylor is now CEO of a complex collections and cross-docking logistics organisation with a fleet in excess of 240 vehicles and with storage capacity of 236,000 sq ft.

From strength to strength

Buffaload Logistics has invested to build the largest independently owned double-deck trailer fleet in the UK.

This investment enables us to provide significant cost saving benefits to our customers. High pallet capacity not only reduces road miles but also minimises vehicle requirements and fuel consumption – all of which contribute to a CO2 emissions reduction of 36%.

As of April 2020 we have received 45 new Volvo tractor units into the fleet running on LNG fuel which reduces carbon emissions by a further 20%.

A message from Buffaload founder and CEO Ross Taylor

We have to act now

In partnership with Buffaload you can make your Chilled Delivery Network carbon neutral by 2023. At Buffaload we are on a mission to proceed with an environmentally responsible approach to Logistics and Cold Chain Supply. We have set up the UK’s first Carbon Neutral Network and we invite your business to join us.

Our planet is poised at the brink of a severe environmental crisis. Current environmental problems make us vulnerable to disasters and tragedies. If humans continue moving forward in such a harmful way towards the future, then there will be no future to consider.

We are officially in a state of climate emergency, with environmental problems piling up high around us. Unless we address the various issues prudently and seriously we are surely doomed for disaster.
