Acumen Logistics Group has bought rival car transporter firm Auto UK Logistics.
Now being renamed Acumen Auto Logistics, the acquisition strengthens Acumen’s penetration of the UK automotive logistics sector.
Based in Coventry, the company delivers finished vehicles via a fleet of specialist car transporters and has contracts with Ford Motor Company to deliver export Land Rover vehicles to UK ports.
It is anticipated that this year Acumen Auto Logistics will turnover circa £1m, operating between seven and 10 specialist car transporters.
Auto UK Logistics proprietor, Malcolm Daffron, has emigrated from the UK to New Zealand.
