About us

GMA Warehousing and Transport began trading from a 7000 sq ft warehouse in 1987 under the stewardship of Steve Day and Glenn Appleby. The business soon gathered momentum, staff numbers doubled and shortly after another 5000 sq ft warehouse was secured on the same site.

Then just three years later, GMA acquired Ipswich Transit Express, a locally based warehousing and distribution company. The two sites needed to be amalgamated, so in 1991, GMA moved into 50,000 sq ft premises on Ransomes Europark, Ipswich.

Since then, GMA's progress has continued at an exciting tempo and has produced a company that now operates 250,000 sq ft of warehouse space and operates over 30 trucks.

Today's current directors, Tony Barnes, Jim Sheridan and Jay Kamat continue to oversee a hard-working team of over 70 drivers, warehousemen and office staff – several of whom are happy to have been with the company for many years.

Today GMA offers a wide range of services which include:
