Well-established Haulage and Courier Service Provider
- Members of the Haulage exchange

This is a great opportunity to take on a reputable haulage and courier service provider which operates nationwide.
The business offers secure and timely delivery of various goods, inclusive of same day UK delivery, 2-3 day collections/deliveries, ADR collections and deliveries and AOG support.
Working with recognisable clients, the company has a fully trained team, as well as its own storage facilities and fleet of vehicles in place, setting any new owner in good stead to easily transition into the business and continue trading effectively.
The business boasts three 44T articulated tractor units and 2 curtainsider trailers, parked on the business’s premises in Hampshire where there is also an onsite café. A maintenance provider and vehicle wash crew also operate on-site, with space available to grow operations.
With accounts already set up with DP World, Southampton, London Gateway and The Port of Felixstowe and strong relationships with its competitors, the new owner could easily take on these accounts. It also services a number of well-known clients, including Amazon, Barronwood, Goldstar, Maritime, Meachers, Millbrook Transport, Seven Lincs, Swift Courier Solutions, Wincanton and is pending approval from Britax, Sainsburys and Veolia.
The business would make an ideal acquisition for someone who currently works in the industry and is seeking a lucrative opportunity, or perhaps a competitor or related business.
There is opportunity to expand in Southampton near to Southampton Docks for the container side of the operation, with DP World continuing to grow with the amount of Vessels and Containers delivered into their port. The business is based close to 3 Amazon regional hubs and with Meachers Transport’s new £1.5m contract win with Geest Line in Portsmouth, this should generate more work. The current owner states that if the new owner requires additional vehicles or trailers then the account with the Dawson Group, Southampton will be able to assist with this.
If the pending contract with Veolia is agreed, then the business will become one of their UK based suppliers to transport their hazardous and non-hazardous waste from Southampton to all over the country, opening the potential for growth on the groupage side of
