Warm welcome and thank you to new sponsor First Class Logistics

We would like to give a very warm welcome and thank you to a new sponsor - 1st Class Logistics.

About 1st Class Logistics

1st Class Logistics was started by Ash Rowden. He has over twenty years experience in the logistics industry at all levels, from delivery driver, Sales Director, Business Development Director (working with both global organisations and SMEs) roles right through to Managing Director at both large national courier firms and smaller local companies. It was whilst working for these larger companies that Ash became disillusioned with the low level of service offered to customers and decided that he could offer a better service by going it alone and so, almost ten years ago, 1st Class was born, first as Couriers, then as Logistics as clients’ needs widened.
Ash is assisted now by Rupert Upton, a veteran of the Sameday industry since 1987, but heavily involved since then in Overnight and International parcels, Storage and Pick and Pack, Haulage and Logistics.

Many of the principles that elite sports teams practise Ash has put into his business model i.e teamwork, preparation, attention to detail,
can do attitude, flexibility, TCUP (thinking clearly under pressure), not accepting second best etc.
1st Class pride themselves on their unrivalled, flexible, dedicated and personal service including direct same day couriers, national
and international logistics and freight. A full range of vehicles is available, please see the “Services” page.
When he’s not running a logistics business, Ash Rowden is generally on a rugby pitch or doing after dinner speeches drawing on his long-running career as a professional rugby referee. Read more at:
