About us

Originally founded in Northamptonshire in 1998 as a same day courier service you would call in a crisis, Crisis Logistics evolved to become one of the UK’s fastest growing and most respected logistics companies offering a broad portfolio of services.

In 2023 we acquired Action Express Northampton, a well-established pallet and parcel specialist, which led to a company rebrand to XTRA Express Logistics.

Our new name demonstrates that we can provide XTRA services to both Crisis Logistics and Action Express Northampton customers whilst retaining the combined 60 years of knowledge and experience of both companies. We have also retained the same friendly team, contact number and will continue to provide the same great service.

Our Networks

Being located in Northamptonshire, we are part of the UK's 'golden logistics triangle', an area in the Midlands so-called due its proximity to major A roads, motorways and airports.

We are also proud members of APC Overnight and Pallet-Track

Knowledge and Service

Through our commitment to providing our clients a comprehensive choice of dependable and cost-effective services, we have grown our reputation and today make well in excess of 500,000 deliveries per year.

We are proud to have achieved ISO 9001 quality accreditation in 2018 and are currently working towards the ISO45001 health and safety standard. Through ongoing investment in technology, sustainability and the agility of our fleet, our ambition is to continue to grow our business, our reputation and the value we provide to our customers in the years ahead.
