Priority Freight Among Fastest Growing Private Firms in the UK
Priority Freight, a Kent-based provider of time-critical logistics has been recognised as one of the fastest-growing mid-market private businesses in the UK, in terms of overseas sales.
The company came 24th in the 2016 ‘Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200’ league table – the highest-placed specialist logistics provider in the UK, as well as the top Kent-based firm in the list. Now in its seventh year, the International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies in order of fastest-growing international sales.
Priority Freight achieved its industry-best ranking by posting a two-year average international sales growth of almost 93%, with annualised overseas sales coming in at just over £21.7m in 2014 – representing over 56% of total sales. The company completes over 100,000 expedited shipments a year, and celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016.
Neal Williams, Group Managing Director at Priority Freight, commented: “By consistently delivering the fastest, most reliable and cost-effective emergency logistics in the business, we have achieved some fantastic results – and this ranking is further evidence that our team’s dedication and hard work is paying off.
“We will continue to innovate, providing the best solutions to customers and our vision is to be the leading provider of time-critical emergency logistics in key markets globally,” Williams added.
