About us

We're an award-winning, market-leading 3PL specialising in high-quality order fulfilment and delivery services. In 2018 we became part of Yusen Logistics (YL), which has strengthened our freight forwarding service offering by air, road, and ocean to add to our established global parcel delivery services. ILG customers are premium brands, many in the beauty, fashion and wellbeing sectors. Our mission is to help them succeed. ILG is a people business - we invest in training and development, recognising and rewarding our people's achievements and creating opportunities for them to progress within our business. If you want to further your career, learn from a friendly team and realise your full potential in a fast-growing company, this is the role for you.
