Transport Ltd
During the summer of 1992 Mr Ricky Morris joined E.L&J Ritchie Ltd to run the company and expand it further. In 1994 E.L&J Ritchie Ltd took the form of Ritchie Transport Ltd with Ricky Morris as Managing Director and Co owner alongside Ernest Ritchie. Having increased the size of the business three fold by 2005 Ernest Ritchie retired and the company moved premises to it’s present site at Dalby Rd, Melton Mowbray.

Ritchie Transport Ltd today is still, as it was back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, a traditionally family run business. It strives to give the best service to it’s customers, offering a fleet of vehicles large enough to cope with most volumes, with a friendly management team small enough to care.

Ritchie Transport Ltd was first incorporated as E.L&J Ritchie Ltd in 1978 by Mr Ernest Ritchie.

Ernest Ritchie first moved to the local area after leaving the RAF. He started up his haulage business with a single flatbed transit van and from there things expanded steadily with the acquisition of larger vehicles, plus a number of drivers to accommodate a contract secured for the distribution of motor vehicle parts. During the early 1980’s another contract was secured for the distribution of building products, expanding the company further.

The company, originally based in Queniborough, Leics, purchased premises in the nearby village of Kirby Bellars, Melton Mowbray. Which it then operated from for the next 20 years.
