The Leeds based Company, J Long and Sons (Haulage) Ltd, has been hauling all manner of goods around the country since the days of the horse and cart. In 1918 Joe Long returned home to Holbeck in Leeds after serving in the first world war in which he had been wounded, taken prisoner and spent time in a German Hospital undergoing serious operations to save his life, resulting in him being left with only one lung. On his return he resumed his business as a coal merchant and general carrier with horse and carts and later with the first of the motor wagons. He could not have foreseen the success that lay on the long road ahead.
In the early days of the company's history, Joe carried out all the work on his own with the help of his trusty horses and carts which he kept in stables near to his home in Chetwynd Street. The business continued to grow in this manner until 1933 when it became the second firm to be registered for the sale of coal by Leeds Weights and Measures.
