PETERBOROUGH-based haulage firm A.D. Boyes Logistics (UK) Ltd has announced its intention to implement exciting expansion plans in 2016, following the continued success of its UK-wide haulage services.
The firm s owner, Adrian Boyes (pictured), founded the business in 2007 and provides logistical assistance to a number of well-known clients, as well as specialising in the refrigerated delivery of chilled goods. Having navigated the firm through the global recession and reacting to fluctuating oil prices, he now heads up an 11-strong team and a fleet of 9 trucks from the company s base in Peterborough.
As part of the business growth strategy, the firm has partnered with Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance to protect its cash flow and free up company funds in order to invest in new staff, assets and pursue new contract opportunities. Adrian Boyes, managing director of A.D. Boyes Logistics (UK) Ltd, said, We ve spent the past nine years establishing the firm as a reliable, service-led business capable of delivering logistical expertise across the country. The company is internationally registered and we plan to implement a Europe-wide strategy over the next 6 months, as well as expanding our fleet to 15 vehicles.
Working with Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance will provide us with the robust financial security we require to achieve sustainable growth, providing the flexibility we need to take the business forward. Late payment continues to be big issue in the haulage industry and this, coupled with unforeseen expenses such as vehicle maintenance or a change in fuel prices can breed uncertainty, denting firms ability to invest.
Liam Hebberd, senior business development manager at Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance, said, It s great to be working with Adrian and the team, and we look forward to cementing a partnership which helps to catapult the business into a sustained period of growth. We know that A.D. Boyes Logistics (UK) Ltd takes great pride in the level of service and assurance it provides its clients, and we are proud to be selected as a finance provider which shares these values. We ve built our business philosophy on transparency, in both our simple fee structure and honest guidance.
