Business Details

  • Road haulage from the UK to mainland Europe and Scandinavia
  • Retirement Sale
  • Leasehold

 

A Freight Forwarding Company specialising in road haulage from the UK to mainland Europe and Scandanavia. 

 

This business is an ideal bolt-on to an already operating business in the freight sector, or somebody who has experience and a full understanding of the freight business and customs clearance. 

 

In advance of Brexit, this business developed a fool-proof customs clearance system, to the extent that their customers implicitly trust them to provide a smooth passage at the ports. 

 

It is important that a new owner has a full understanding of customs clearance to uphold the trust that customers have in this business and to avoid any delays during port crossings. 

 

Staff

There are currently two memeber of staff (each part time) as well as the director. Director and one memeber of staff are French bi-lingual.

 

As this is a retirement sale, the current director would be looking to take a step back from the business following a handover period. A new owner would be required to appoint somebody to take over the role that the owner currently has within the business. 

 

In order to maintain customer relationships, there must be somebody who is French speaking within the operational team. 

 

Tenure

This business is currently operating from a leasehold premises in the West Midlands. 

 

Premises comprises of x4 office rooms. Currently there are only 3 members of staff working from this office space, however there is plenty of room to expand the team and make use of the space. The business has occupied the premises for over 20 years and has a great relationship with the landlord.

 

Monthly running costs (including rent) are £1,000. Rent is charged quarterly at £2,800. 

 

Financial Information

All transport is sub-contracted, so there are minimal overheads in the business.
