Business description

this successful and well established transport company has two methods of operation, the first being an independently owned same day courier service and the second a nationally owned parcel delivery franchise for the sheffield area. The same day courier service operates from a leasehold office close by to the city centre and specialises in the carriage of sensitive items and documents. They offer a reliable and competitive service to a database of over 500 customers with a small fleet of six leased mercedes sprinter vans. All of their drivers have a minimum of five years experience and offer clients a professional and efficient service to local, national and international destinations, with all items fully insured from pick-up to drop-off. The parcel delivery franchise is part of a national organisation with a central hub in the midlands. The company owns the franchise for the sheffield area working out of their own local leasehold depot collecting parcels from the surrounding area, consolodating them and then transporting them to the national hub, returning with parcels to be distributed to clients in their own sheffield area. This is a well organised and efficient operation which works with a small fleet of six vehicles, two of which are wholly owned. They have a database of regular repeat customers who they deal with on a daily/weekly basis. The busines has been running since 1989 by the founder and has an excellent reputation for its reliability, competitive rates and their flexibility in providing a “round the clock” service. This would make a perfect “bolt on” company for an organisation in a similar or associated market who wish to expand their operation in the sheffield area. Key strengths: • well established same day courier service and national parcel franchise • wide database of customers with regular repeat clients • experts in sensitive items and documentation delivery • all year round business with own leasehold depot and offices • excellent name and reputation for reliability and competitive service • consistent turnover history and profits • small fleet of twelve vehicles, two wholly owned • first class prospects for growth and expansion growth and expansion and opportunities: there are significant opportunities to grow this business, simply by a sales drive and marketing plan advising potential customers of the reliable and competitive services that the company offers. Equipment: the company leases the majority of its fleet of vehicles, but owns two of them they also have a fork lift truck which they have on hp.
