Business Description

Very Profitable Road Haulage Pallet Services including Freight Transport & Logistics
Location County Durham
Asking Price £ 950,000
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an independently owned family run haulage company that specialise in the transportation of palletised freight. The business offers their customers a next day delivery service anywhere within the UK, plus a worldwide export service, being heavily involved in transportation throughout the whole of Ireland.

The business are members of a major UK pallet distribution network handling a large part of the North East of England. This membership allows them to collect pallets within their area from customers, transporting them every night to a central UK base. The pallets are then re-distributed and delivered to the end customer. The company is also the North East transport member of a large freight forwarder who specialise in delivering imports and collecting exports across the UK, and who have a central depot working with a similar operational method. The company handles a healthy amount of their own generated business on a daily basis throughout the UK and Ireland.

The business was established in 1935 and has grown steadily over the years. They operate from a well equipped site with a bulk fuel tank, warehouse and offices in County Durham, with excellent links to the major motorway networks and main roads. They have a well maintained fleet of fully liveried vehicles including artics, rigids, vans and trailers plus a full time team of highly qualified drivers. They are members of the RHA and are licensed for sixteen vehicles and twenty trailers.

This is a well established and well run business that offers their customers a competitive and efficient service from a first class distribution site in County Durham. Turnover has grown significantly over the past two years with the company benefitting from their associations with the two transport network distribution partnerships.
