Business Summary:
Very Profitable Road Haulage/ Distribution & Pallet Services Co.Ref. GP070Location : NorthamptonshireAsking Price : £1,200,000This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an independently owned family run haulage company that specialises in the transportation of palletised freight in addition to traditional haulage and distribution services. The business offers their customers a next day delivery service anywhere within the UK and its core service offerings and revenue streams are listed below.• HAULAGE & DISTRIBUTION• PALLET NETWORK MEMBER• WAREHOUSINGIn addition to the above the busienss can also offer:• ADR CPAPABILITY (All qualifications/training and accreditations recently put in place but as yet not promoted through choice)• LICENSED WASTE CARRIER (As above-valid UNTIL July 2020).• INTERNATIONAL OPERATOR LICENSED FOR 30 VEHICLES AND 25 TRAILERS (Valid until 2021). Again business has the license but currently does not offer this service through choice.The business is an established member of a major UK pallet distribution network handling a very busy part of the UK.This membership allows them to collect pallets within their area from customers, transporting them to a central UK base. The pallets are then re-distributed and delivered to the end customer (circa 100 pallets a night at present which accounts for circa 25% of overrall revenues). The company also handles a healthy amount of their own generated business on a daily basis throughout the UK from a diverse range of customers, both big and small built up over almost 30 years successful trading.The business operates from a well equipped and ideally located large site with excellent links to the major motorway networks and main roads. They have a well maintained fleet of fully liveried vehicles including tractor units, rigids, and curtain sider trailers plus a full-time team of highly qualified drivers. They are members of the RHA and are licensed for thirty vehicles and twenty five trailers.

 

   
Year Business was Established: 1987
   
Number of Employees: 31FT  
   
Facilities / Terms of Lease: The business operates from two large sites (one is purely for pallet network) ideally located close to the major road networks. We are advised the landlords are prepared to negotiate a new lease period with the new owners with a rental of circa £30,000 per annum (subject to negotiation). Alternatively the business could be relocated.  
   
Potential Growth/Expansion: Turnover and profits generated by this company have been consistently impressive over recent financial years which has enabled the business to continue to re-invest in its fleet and services offered. The business has recently invested in acquiring ADR and Waste Carrier License accreditations and has the facility to offer these services to clients moving forward. As yet the vendors have not had actively promoted these new services but they represent a significant opportunity to a new owner should they wish to pursue. The company also holds an international haulage license but has again chosen not to offer European/Worldwide distribution services to date through choice. Again there is no reason why a new owner could not exploit this significant opportunity. The pallet network the company works with has national advertising campaigns and they produce a steady stream of daily work in their allotted area. As the main network company continues to grow so will the number of daily collections and deliveries in their area further increasing this company’s revenues. The business operates from a site that is large enough to handle a significant increase in daily business and has huge growth potential.  
   
Competition: The business does no pro-active marketing preferring to rely on high levels of repeat business, word of mouth recommendations and referrals. It has an informative website although its online presence could be developed even more. There is no external sales representation at present.  
   
Owner willing to train: The vendors would be happy to help with a smooth transfer of the business in any way possible. This should be a relatively simple process as the business has excellent second tier management already in place who can run the business on a day to day basis.  
   
Reason for selling: The vendors have worked hard to build this business up over the last thirty years and are now planning their exit strategy to enjoy the fruit of their labours. They believe this is the perfect time to sell when the business is strong with many new opportu
