The LV Shipping & Transport Group was established in 1921 in the Netherlands under the name J. Lensveld & Zonen B.V. The family company started with horse and carriage and traded in transport, road building, sand and rubbish skips. The head office is still located in Vlaardingen, the Netherlands.
In 1977 a new ferry trailer department started named Elvex. Shortly after this the first office in the UK was set up in Sheerness. It was operated a branch office to help return the trailers that were being shipped from Holland to the UK. LV Shipping Ltd was formally established in 1986, set up to undertake major oil and petrochemical forwarding contracts in the North Sea. Now 11 offices are strategically located along the East Coast of Scotland and England.
