Acumen Logistics group celebrates it's 10th anniversary

It is celebrations all the way for Northampton based Acumen Logistics Group, which this year commemorates its 10th anniversary.  From small beginnings, the company has grown to become one of the UK’s top 100 logistics companies with a turnover in excess of £20 million and employing around 200 personnel. To mark the occasion, a grand prize draw has been organised for all employees with over six month’s service with star prizes including wide screen televisions; Red Letter vouchers and ipads.
Owner and Chairman, John Hodges, purchased the company in 2004 from Autologic, which had decided to sell one of its vehicle parts distribution subsidiaries, Acumen.  Believing that Acumen had a great deal of potential if it was restructured and managed correctly, he secured the company and merged it with his existing transport business, VAS.
Following the implementation of a strategic business plan to rationalise and streamline the operation and eliminate unnecessary expenditure, a new, much smaller corporate structure was established under a new management team.  Equipped with the necessary hands-on experience of vehicle logistics to run it effectively and efficiently on a day-to-day basis, the company quickly grew to become one of the UK’s top 100 logistics companies.
