This logistics firm provides customers with a nationwide network of delivery and storage options, serving blue-chip corporations, small businesses and online shopfronts alike. The Guildford company is led by chief executive Kate Lester, 45, who started the firm in 1992 when she was just 20 years old. In 2012 she spotted an opportunity to franchise her business name and model, and now works with a network of 25 franchisees across the UK. As a result, sales have quadrupled in the past three years to £6.5m in 2016.
