Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this busy courier company which specialises in the collection and delivery of parcels and has desirable licenses with APC and Hermes . It has been under the proud ownership of our client since 2013 during which time they have made considerable investment which has substantially increased turnover and profits. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendor wishes to develop other business interests outside of the Somerset area. During our clients stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its reliable and efficient service.
Operating from substantial warehouse facilities just outside the centre of Frome, Bath Logistics offers parcel delivery and collection and same day delivery services. With hundreds of the South West leading businesses using them for the delivery of their goods throughout the rest of the UK and abroad.
Bath Logistics is run by our client with help from a team of dedicated full and part time staff. We are advised that it generates a turnover in the region of £1,700,000 per year with high gross profit margins.
