Business Details

Our client provides local, national, and European haulage services to clients in Kent and across the UK. Established in 1989 as a partnership and later incorporated in 2007, the company is set for a record turnover in 2021/2022 of £1.95 million pounds.

 

Accountants classify hypergrowth businesses as those growing at a 10% YOY compounded rate. Hypergrowth businesses are normally early-stage tech companies burning through millions of pounds of cash per annum in the pursuit of higher revenues.

 

This is an opportunity to purchase an established hypergrowth business carrying no debt in a market where, for the foreseeable future, gross profit margins will be at record highs.

 

The company’s financial performance in recent years has been nothing short of remarkable. If the projected revenue figures for 2021/2022 are achieved, this will represent a compounded annual growth rate of over 40% per annum in the two most recent financial years plus 2021/2022 as well as 91% YOY growth over 2020/2021.

 

The company is uniquely positioned to profit from the current driver and vehicle shortage which is likely to be ongoing for another two to three years. Better still however, there are a number of unique factors about our client which means that, when the current shortages end, they will be in a stronger position than most of their surviving competitors.

 

The company’s services

 

The company offers haulage services to businesses moving pallets and other consignments to clients’ required destinations. 

 

Although they offer timetabled services (timed pick-ups on agreed dates) to clients like most of their competitors, they have established a niche in same day dispatch and express haulage services for urgent deliveries. For the avoidance of doubt, our client does not offer courier services like Parcelforce, DHL, and so on.

 

They also offer short- and long-term storage solutions to clients for which they bill on average £30,000pa.

 

FORS GOLD accreditation

 

Because of their FORS accreditation, the company is one of the few permitted to make deliveries to building sites in London.

 

The number of cities requiring FORS GOLD hauliers to deliver to building sites is growing and this represents a significant growth opportunity for any new owner of the business.

 

Demand for FORS GOLD hauliers is expected to spike in coming years as corporates, construction firms, and public sector bodies impose high standards as a condition of supply.

 

The company is also proud to be Clocs, Crossrail, HS2 and Tideways compliant.

 

Workspace and operational assets

 

The company has 4,000ft2 warehouse premises with racking down both sides. There is a ground floor office for the transport manager and the accounts/admin manager. There is an upstairs office for traffic office staff.

 

The company has 14 commercial vehicles, 1 forklift truck, and 20 pump up pallet trucks.

 

All vehicles are FORS GOLD compliant. This means that they are fitted with additional safety features which vary depending on the size of the vehicle. All have cameras, tail lift safety bars, flashing amber lights, audible reversing and turn lift. The 18T’s also have half glass near side door and numerous nearside mirrors.

 

Opportunities for expansion

 

Sales and marketing is an activity which no-one within the company is currently responsible for. Despite the company’s rapid growth, opportunities to increase T/O further have been missed.

 

The company is financially and operationally efficient and generates enough free cash for a new owner to invest in its development without the need to provide further funding following takeover.

 

Making an enquiry

 

Our client is a rapidly growing haulage company with a loyal client base, motivated set of employees, and flexible army of contractors. Its position close to the capital and Channel Tunnel and closely connected to the M2 and M20 give it a particular advantage.

 

A new owner would benefit greatly from its cash generation abilities and FORS GOLD accreditation. The foundation of hypergrowth established by the current owners could be quickly built on further with ongoing marketing and promotion.
