Automotive industry helps drive Freightex growth
The decision by leading European transport provider Freightex to target the automotive parts market has paid dividends, with the company experiencing 20% growth in 2012.
Car production in the UK enjoyed a four year high last year, and 2013 looks even better, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
“The outlook for 2013 remains positive with demand in many faster growing global markets offsetting the continued weakness in European economies,“ it says.
Freightex CEO Tim Phillips says: “The automotive industry is just one of many markets we serve, but it is precisely those highly competitive industries which need us most.
“Our innovative approach to finding available haulier capacity, whether for long-term contracts or spot journeys, and then managing the entire process to ensure our customers’ high standards are met allows us to offer a cost effective and quality service.”
As well as growth in the automotive sector, Freightex also experienced growth in other sectors, such as the FMCG market.
“We have been growing every year since we were set up, but 2012 was particularly challenging for the logistics industry, so we are delighted to have achieved this level of growth,” says Mr Phillips.
“Selecting the automotive industry as one of our target markets may be seen as somewhat unconventional as it was facing so many difficulties just a few years ago. But we feel our cost effective and high quality service is precisely what companies under pressure need.”
Freightex is a logistics management company dedicated to finding the most efficient road transport solutions for its customers. It is particularly active in the UK, Benelux, France, Spain and Germany with transactions completed across its European network every day between over 1500 customers and carriers.
