Founded in 1983
Founded in 1983 as Amco Services (Motorsport), the business was originally focussed on providing specialist Logistics, Shipping and Freight Services to Formula 1 teams and the Motorsport Industry. Amco Services, its sister company, was formed to handle all other general freight and transport.
As the two companies grew, it became evident that there were increasing levels of ‘cross-over’ between the two businesses and in order to streamline and further improve services to our customers, they consolidated to form AMCO Services (International) Ltd.
The formation of a group structure in 2019 now positions Amco Group as a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider with the ability to deliver services of a 4PL with extra added value services.
Amco has taken the 3PL model a step further with the successful launch and integration of Amco Tooling and Amco Packaging divisions.
They have strategic warehousing and transport facilities and partners strategically located in major transport locations to service both customer and operational needs.
