What a first half-year it has been!
Despite what 2021 has thrown at us so far, from the ‘once in a lifetime’ effects of COVID-19, to the complexities of Brexit – we are delighted to announce a record first half-year!
Alongside our financial success, we are also progressing further with our Fast Forward growth plan, projecting turnover of more than £35m by the end of 2022, helped by employing an additional 50 people. 2021 has already seen a net increase of employees, which will take us to over 100 people for the first time by the end of the year.
Further developments include investing in our Air and Sea teams, reflecting the UK Government’s policy of developing overseas trade. This move, coupled with our newly founded around-the-clock, 24/7 Customs Support team developed for Brexit, has doubled the number of people in operations roles since December 2020.
And we couldn’t have done this without the hard work our team in preparing for Brexit and working throughout the pandemic, as well as our market-leading European customs clearance partnership with Gerlach and European freight partnership with DHL Freight, which together deliver an integrated, post-Brexit solution.
Our Managing Director, Peter Isler says: “While the pandemic caused unexpected delays to our Fast Forward plans, we’re delighted to see not only the recruitment drive, but also our predicted figures coming back to life as we bounce back bigger and stronger than before.
“Our renowned customer service has supported our customers well throughout the pandemic. On top of that, we’ve developed market leading solutions for both imports and DAP and DDP exports between the UK and Europe. This is allowing us to outperform our Fast Forward plans – with turnover of £12.9m in the first half of the year, and expected turnover of at least £28m for 2021 – £3m above our goal.”
