Haulage

Lorry

Every business is different, however there are particular issues that haulage and logistic businesses face which are unique to the sector. 

Issues that arise:

  • Margins
  • Fuel cards
  • HMRC debts
  • Varying cost of fuel and hedging
  • Expensive to upgrade a fleet
  • Expensive training
  • Length of time to get paid
  • Lost contracts

As turnaround practitioners, our specialists can help tackle these issues with you to get your transport business back on track. We can go through all the available options, like expert assessment of the issues your company faces, improved financial reporting,  Time to Pay deals,  CVAs and pre-pack administrations.  

You may be concerned that entering a CVA means losing your vehicle operator’s licence but since ownership is not changing hands, you won’t lose the licence and you don’t need to apply for a new one. 

If pre-pack administration is an option, it’s a little more difficult as ownership does switch over. The licence will become void so the new buyer ought to apply for a license 8-12 weeks before the sale. Administrators can contact the Traffic Commissioner and request permission to continue operating vehicles, but this can be very complex process so seek legal advice. 

Call us on 0800 9700539 for free expert advice and a talk through your options. We can visit you onsite to discuss your specific situation.  We will set out plans to AVOID formal insolvency action if possible.

KSA has extensive turnaround experience  with haulage and logistics firms such as car transporters, Heathrow logistics /national distribution companies (see “Circle Express CVA” online for example), outsourced supermarket transport  companies, one man haulage firms, general large haulage  and we even made important  case law in one case – see Thomas v Ken Thomas case online

If you have cashflow worries, you should call Keith Steven for an initial chat on 0800 9700539, he was involved in all of the companies above.
