Freight Mergers are firmly of the belief that the most important part of the freight and logistics industry are the people involved. As an extension of this ethos we believe that deal-making is also about the people involved and the most important aspect of Freight Mergers is therefore, the staff.

We have sourced and put together our M&A team from various backgrounds to provide a variety of different experience across different sectors including B2B sales, recruitment, freight and logistics, database management and finance. With such a wealth of varied experience, not only from the different sectors our team have worked in previously but also from recent years of completing successful transactions at Freight Mergers, we have managed to build a professional, dedicated team to assist our clients with their acquisition and exit strategy requirements.
