About us

our story

Who we are

Diamond Logistics was founded in 1992 by Kate Lester to help SMEs with their delivery and storage needs. We started as a same day courier company with  huge ambitions to scale.

We added overnight, international  and fulfilment solutions which scaled our business. When we shared this with our industry colleagues, it created what you see today. Our network with a real passion for delivery. 

We’ve embraced new technological solutions to grow and improve our services —  launching our own logistics platform, Despatchlab.

Now, millions of parcels in, we’ve created an ambitious, creative business tailored to the needs of individuals and companies. 

Whether you’re looking to build your own courier company or grow your online business, we’ve got a solution for you.

And with nearly three decades of experience, we truly understand what makes businesses tick.

What we do

We understand the challenge of running a business, which is why we put humans at the heart of what we do.

We craft bespoke logistics solutions to ensure your deliveries get where they need to be—whether you’re looking for an express, sameday courier service, overnight or international delivery, or storage and fulfilment for your online business.

We’ve helped businesses big and small reach their customers, from book subscription service Books that Matter to affordable paddle board and surfboard company FatStick.

All our partners are part of our big logistics family, so we’re truly invested in their success and growth.

We’re human centric and stick close to our clients. And they stick close to their products. They can step inside our fulfilment centres to touch and feel their stock, unlike other providers.  

So, if you have a package, you can be sure it gets to where it needs to go.

Powerful technology
