About Us

The John Good Group of companies continues to prosper under the ownership of the Good family, who founded the business in 1833.

During this time, the organisation has earned an enviable reputation throughout the UK and overseas, thanks to the high quality and diverse range of services, coupled with its experienced and dedicated team of employees. As a result of carefully planned acquisitions and continuous investment, the Group has grown significantly and prides itself on holding a portfolio of businesses that reflect the values and ethos of the Good family itself. The Company operates in accordance with a set of well-defined values, specifically in relation to our customers, our suppliers and our colleagues, and these remain firmly at the heart of all that we do.

Over the past few years the John Good Group has grown as a business, thanks to successes in building its customer base across each of its companies and through acquiring companies in similar areas of trade and with similar values to those of the business and family.

The group now includes nine different subsidiaries, each operating independently, but working together wherever possible. By working in a varied range of industries, John Good has been able to effectively weather the recent economic storm, and this versatility has been a large factor in the group’s recent success.

The subsidiaries include established names from across the region including shipping and logistics companies John Good Shipping, Felixstowe Warehousing, FOCS Logistics, TEPS Warehousing and Distribution Cougar Freight and DAN Shipping & Chartering, as well as business travel specialists Good Travel Management.

Today the company operates in three main industry sectors:
