Baxter Freight named 'fastest growing company' in Notts

After increasing turnover by an average of 306% over the last three years, we are proud to have been recognised as the fastest growing mid-sized company in Nottinghamshire.

The Nottinghamshire Growth Barometer 2017 published by BDO* listed us at the top of its list which measures turnover growth of mid-sized firms in the county and identifies the fastest growing 50.

But our turnover is just one part of the story; we have a team of 60 dedicated people and a network of long-term partners and suppliers who help us deliver market-leading logistics services to our customers.

We offer daily services covering all the main commercial centres in continental Europe and the Nordic region, as well as thriving domestic and overseas divisions.

Ian, founder and chairman of Baxter Freight, said: “It is great to be recognised for our rapid growth which is testament to the hard work and commitment of our 60-strong team.

“Our projections show that this trajectory is likely to continue for the foreseeable future as we build Baxter Freight into a market-leading international logistics partner based here in Nottingham.

“Looking back, it’s hard to believe the business started in my living room with nothing. We had no people, no computers, no premises, no customers and no suppliers.

“It’s not easy to bring a business out of the ground overnight – as well as building up our suite of products we needed to get out there to find people who could benefit from our services.”

Now the team is run by one of the most experienced and successful management teams in the UK Freight industry and supported by professionals in HR, IT and operations. We’ve recruited and trained a team of dedicated account managers who exist to provide the best customer service to our customers.

Ian added: “We’ve developed a brilliant team in a very short space of time and I believe we have kept them happy in their roles by making Baxter Freight a great community and a fun place to work. I like to think we are a flexible employer that understands the ups and downs people face in everyday life.”
