Nationwide logistics company, Bedfords Transport has purchased the balance of the shares in network partner, LinQ Alliance, taking its ownership to 100%.
This comes after a very successful 2010 for Leeds based Bedfords, who decided it was time to expand its business network across the UK. As a member shareholder of the logistics network, Bedfords decided to make the move and invest fully in LinQ Alliance.
LinQ Alliance is a national logistics service provider focused on supplying cost effective supply chain management solutions. The network brings together a group of the country’s leading regional transport and distribution companies, and will remain under the same name, managing its existing networks and assets.
Bedfords has continued to grow over the last 12 months and shows no signs of slowing down with this latest acquisition. The company is renowned for its commitment to ensuring its service is on time and has an outstanding track record for accuracy and reliability.
Steff Pfadenhauer, Managing Director of Bedfords, said: “It is a logical move for us as we continue our move from being a regionally recognised haulier to a national one. We doubled in size last year and hope to do so again within the next two or three years, and the purchase of LinQ Alliance is part of that growth strategy. We have been members and shareholders in LinQ Alliance from the start, recognising the worth of working together with like minded companies to provide cost effective supply chain management solutions. We will continue the good work of LinQ Alliance, servicing customers and working with partners as before.”
