Our History

JLT was set up in August 2017. In September 2018, Peter J O’Leary (with no prior knowledge of the transport industry) was asked to become a silent investor in the company. At the time, JLT had one manager-driver, no assets, and an International O’Licence for one unit two trailers.

By May 2019 it became clear that the company was not as it had been described and Peter informed the O’Licence holder that he would withdraw his investment unless he had a hand in controlling the business. All previous directors were finally removed in June 2019.

We purchased our first unit in September 2019. Peter successfully completed his Transport Manager’s qualification in 20 April 2020. JLT was thoroughly audited by the Traffic Commissioners Office and an O’Licence increase was granted in June 2021.

Since then, Peter J O’Leary has managed to steer the company out of debt and into profit within three years. JLT now owns five units, one Van and four trailers with an O’Licence for eight units, sixteen trailers.
Our longest serving member of staff has been with us since 2019 and we have recruited steadily in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

JLT treats the drivers like human beings and not robots.

JLT management understand my non-negotiable issues regarding family responsibilities, child care arrangements and the times I need to finish my week.

The driver is always the priority, no matter what.

Working for JLT feels like working for the family.

After my cancer, I thought I wouldn’t find a company that would be so understanding of me going to appointments.
