Following a management change in 2015, Wellingborough-based logistics business, KGT Logistics, has seen a 78% increase in turnover from £2.7 million to £4.8 million.

In addition, the business has seen growth in other areas such as employee numbers, now employing 28 employees, up 75% from 16 back in 2015.

Hollie Gill, Director at KGT Logistics, said: “The business has definitely seen a lot of growth since 2015.

Both Steve and Hollie are happy to discuss how to improve the relationship and in the past have also provided us with idea’s to extend our offering to the Haulage sector.”

Ms Gill added: “Our relationship with Skipton has always run very smoothly and any issues we’ve had have been resolved straight away. It’s important to have realistic ambitions about what you want your business to achieve.”
