Xpediator Plc is the parent company for the Xpediator Group of companies, which trades under several brands. The original business, trading as “Delamode”, was established in 1988 by Stephen Blyth (the Group’s Chief Executive Officer), providing freight forwarding services in the UK.
Today, the Group’s International network of offices has grown and provides road, sea and air freight services, together with logistics and warehousing in the UK and Romania.
