Edward Stobart, son of the founder Eddie Stobart, took over the helm from his father who had founded the company in the 1950s, dealing mainly in agricultural products in Cumbria. In the 1970s, the company was incorporated as Eddie Stobart Ltd, when the business passed to Eddie's son Edward Stobart. Edward developed the road haulage side, steering the operation towards the international logistics haulage company it is today. Edward stepped down in 2003 and after a series of complex takeovers, the business is now represented by his brother William, along with Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Tinkler and has developed into an intermodal logistics company. Together they control the Eddie Stobart empire, still centred in Carlisle in Cumbria, but operating around 6 million square feet of state-of-the-art storage facilities throughout the UK and Europe. They employ over 5000 staff between their 40 sites, with a fleet of around 1850 trucks and 3000 trailers, as well as rail services and a port.
