Backline Logistics

Sale to SWS Group

Backline is a specialist employment agency,with deep expertise and experience in the transport and logistics sector. From its origins, in 1999, the Company had established a reputation for supplying high quality temporary staff to a number of prominent national and local customers.

The company, a leading player in the South West with c50% regional market share, had an active client base of more than 320 companies in the retail, haulage and logistics sectors and has long-term framework agreements in place with several major clients.

Our clients had established a competent and talented senior management team, who were responsible for the day to day business operations.

Having made the decision to retire, our clients were looking for a straightforward sale process that delivered an attractive price and one that recognised all of the years of “blood, sweat and tears” involved in growing a successful business.
