Acumen Automotive Logistics acquires 'Enable' from Stobart

Acumen Automotive Logistics Ltd  has acquired a 100% shareholding and the assets of specialist enclosed car delivery operator, Enable, from the Stobart Group for an undisclosed sum.  Enable is being incorporated into Acumen Automotive Logistics and its trucks and trailers rebranded.
Established in 2000, under the stewardship of Mick Hill, Enable has built up a reputation as a leading enclosed car delivery operator, dealing with visually sensitive and specialist vehicles which it transports throughout the UK and Europe.  As a wholly owned subsidiary of Autologic Group, Enable became part of the Stobart Group following the sale of Autologic to Stobart in 2012.
Acumen Automobile Logistics has relocated Enable’s staff and vehicles to its recently opened Operating Centre in Coventry.  Still headed by Mick Hill, who becomes General Manager, Acumen has also employed the company’s 12 drivers and two administration staff under TUPE transfers.
Acumen Automotive Logistics has already bought four new specialist enclosed car transporters and is planning to completely replace Enable’s existing fleet over the next 12-months. The new fleet will augment Acumen’s 20 new Scania tractor units and 20 Lohr trailers purchased recently following the company being awarded a number of major contracts from Jaguar Land Rover.
