Whether you're a one-man owner-driver or have a fleet of trucks, we can make sure that you have cash in your bank as soon as you raise an invoice. We truly believe that the UK logistics sector is THE most important sector in the UK economy.
All you need to do is drive down the M1 to see the vast number of wagons out on the road delivering goods to businesses in every corner of our great nation.
Below is SBF's rundown on the key facts and figures in the logistics and road haulage industry:
> 2.3 million people work in logistics sector. That's half the population of Sweden!
> 840,000 additional workers required to work in logistics sector by 2017. The sector grows!
