National Freight Corporation
In 1969 British Road Services (BRS) was renamed the National Freight Corporation.
Under the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher in 1982 it was sold to its employees in one of the first privatisations of state-owned industry under the name the National Freight Consortium.
It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1989 and subsequently became NFC plc.
BRS Parcels was rebranded as Roadline and left the Company by way of a management buy-out under the name LYNX Express in 1997.
The Company disposed of Pickfords in 1999 to Allied Van Lines.
