The parent company of Cab Direct, Allied Vehicles, has made the Sunday Times Top Track 250 list. This survey identifies the privately owned mid-market companies with a strong growth strategy.

The family values at the core of the business allow us to be more responsive to market demands and build long term relationships with our customers.
Market Leading Products
Our purpose-built taxi products have made a significant contribution to the success of the business. The introduction of the Ford ProCab™ represents a new generation of hackney taxi, with a high specification that delights operators and customer alike. The EasySlide™ rear seat for improved accessibility is one of the clever features that sets ProCab™ apart from other Tourneo Custom conversions.
Our Peugeot Premier™ offers car like running costs with wheelchair accessible flexibility. It’s no surprise that this has been the highest selling wheelchair accessible taxi on the market over the last few years. The new Ford Journey™ is another vehicle that offers a compact footprint on the road, low carbon emissions and a versatile interior. The FlatFold™ ramp is an innovation that quickly transforms the Journey™ from a five seater car to wheelchair accessible taxi.
Our business has been wholly family owned since its inception in 1993 and doesn’t have a conglomerate in the background, directing strategy and taking some of the profits abroad. The family values at the core of the business allow us to be more responsive to market demands and build long term relationships with our customers.
