MALTACOURT ACQUIRE INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT FORWARDER
Freightline has been trading for over 40 years and has operated recently under the stewardship of Trevor Felstead; who with his existing team, now joins Maltacourt at our London Heathrow facility, to add his significant experiences and capabilities to an already dynamic and commercial team.
Freightline turned over in excess of £1.5m last financial year and with the developed infrastructure offered by Maltacourt and opportunity to cross sell further services, the team are confident this will only improve.
Freightline shared a number of synergies with Maltacourt and after working together for a significant period the move felt right for both parties, as Matt Beech, Maltacourt Group CEO goes on to explain.
“Freightline like Maltacourt is a classic, asset light, freight forwarder and a perfect complement to our already excellent operation at Heathrow. With specialisms in cross trade activity, particularly in the Middle East and Africa, it will further emphasise our place, as the partner of choice in the difficult end of logistics.”
Trevor Felstead, former MD of Freightline went on to add, “Freightline shares a number of synergies with Maltacourt, perhaps most notably its commitment to top class customer service to an international client base.”
Freightline will significantly boost Maltacourt’s presence out of Heathrow and further grow the company’s footprint in the London and surrounding region.
