Our Heritage

Bowker has developed into one of the largest privately-owned transport & warehousing companies in the UK but the company’s foundations were built on humble beginnings. It all started 104 years ago in Blackburn, Lancashire. William Henry Bowker used his war gratuity to buy his first vehicle and began making local deliveries. It wasn't long before he'd assembled one of the largest fleets in the area. Learn more about Bowker’s history.
