S & R Smith & Son is a British family-owned road haulage company based in Essex, England.

The business was established in Stratford, London, in 1949 by the late Samuel Smith, his wife Rose and their son Raymond. Starting out with just two vehicles, they worked for local companies in the East London area, shipping various goods from the docks and warehouses.

The company now operates 10 miles from its original depot, from a new base in Aveley, Essex. It is managed by Lee Smith, Samuel's grandson, and is noted as a specialist in distribution within the South East of England, and also offers warehousing facilities. The firm handles work in the FMCG sector for the likes of Procter & Gamble and Britvic, and looks after deliveries in the South-East for operator consortium Jigsaw.
