SHS Freight services was founded in 1923 as Direct Motor Services (Sheffield) Limited, and for three decades the enterprise developed as a transport agency, undertaking haulage work for companies operating in many sectors of industry and commerce.


During the fifties, however, the company chose to diversify into warehousing and accordingly built two warehouses in Sheffield. The success of the venture led to the purchase of a 4 acre site on the Eastwood Tradind Estate in Rotherham, and in 1960 the company changed their name to Sheffield Haulage and Storage limited.


Subsequentimprovements to the sheffield and South Yorkshire waterway prompted the company to invest in excess of £1/4m. in the construction of a wharf at Rotherham, a move which enabled SHS  to take full advantage of the movement of cargo by barge between the humber ports and Rotherham.
