For most company owners, selling their business is the most important financial transaction of their life.  To meet the challenge of getting a fair price for a business, whilst simultaneously finding a buyer who our clients want to work with, we have developed a proactive approach to selling a business that connects buyers with sellers with the best synergies.

Freight Mergers have been managing our clients exit strategies for over five years within the freight and logistics sector. When we started out this was the primary function and service provided to shareholders wanting to sell their businesses, and it is an area we understand in great depth. Every business is individual and unique. It will have its own history, stories and successes and with that identity it will have shareholders with their own retirement and exit aspirations. Owners who have spent many years building not only their experience and reputation within the industry but have also been building their businesses along with it. For many, their businesses are very much an extension of who they are, their culture, staff and customers are what makes them tick. Our aim is to understand that and deliver a suitable strategy.

It’s through this understanding that we are able to find prospective buyers that match those aspects of our clients’ businesses and therefore produce a successful and smooth exit process. Having built a global database over more than 10 years within the freight and logistics sector beginning with recruitment and refining those contacts through meeting and communication, over time Freight Mergers have built an unparalleled network within the industry. Utilising this network, and more importantly our knowledge of this network, the consultants at Freight Mergers are able to source the buyers who are best positioned to purchase our client’s businesses.
