Transport and Logistics

Driving change and growth for an evolving and sustainable future

This year has seen mixed fortunes for the transport and logistics industry. Some businesses have managed to take full benefit of escalated volumes of home delivery of food, drink and parcels while others such as car transportation and those supporting the entertainment, exhibition and hospitality sectors have struggled through at best.

With the lockdown unlocking, opportunities will now be there for the industry to recover. As always, those that can keep their heads, understand their market and their customers best will emerge stronger and become the success stories of tomorrow.

The Logistics industry is constantly adapting to demand with an uncertain and ever-changing supply chain with no clear roadmap.

Where traditional marketplaces moved from the high street to online, Logistics companies had to evaluate and adapt their operations and business strategies/five year plans were hastily rewritten.

A network of dedicated support is vital to drive success; however, Logistics sees a greater labour turnover than the UK average. Managing the demands of labour turnover can ultimately affect the efficiency of the operation, putting pressure on profits, employee relations and business growth.

Staying ahead in a highly competitive sector is challenging, especially in a sector built on third party partnerships where success and failure are measured on contract profitability.

The good news is our team of logistics experts are established in creating stability, ensuring company directors are successful in scaling their business and exit by succession planning or sale.
