Based in Northamptonshire, Knights of Old’s operations cover Britain, Ireland and mainland Europe. The group has 300 trucks — some named after Arthurian knights — as well as food-grade warehousing, packing and e-fulfilment services. Under managing director Ian Beattie, 50, overseas sales hit £9.9m last year, and in September it launched an express service to cater for the growing number of international companies based in Ireland.
