Who We Are

In 1944, cousins Lionel Lockhart and Harold Adamson became partners and formed Lockson, a new UK-based shipping company specializing in the shipment of goods from the UK-based shipping company specializing in the shipment of goods from the UK to worldwide locations. Shortly thereafter, they created a special service to meet the needs of several American clients who came to the UK to purchase antiques and required safe, reliable transport back to the US. The demand for this specialty grew quickly and Lockson’s expertise expanded in kind.

The Lockson Brand, a long history of excellent service since 1944. A family-owned business that has relied on the eloquence of old-world traditions and the efficiency of modern-day technology. Our long standing logo of Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, portrays a moving experience.  This logo beautifully represents the Lockson family of personal service, efficiency, loyalty, and honesty.
