Founded more than 50 years ago, when it operated only one route — to and from Italy — this logistics firm now makes more than 400,000 shipments a year to 160 countries from its £30m base in Dartford, Kent. Managing director Andrew Baxter, 43, saw sales grow 24% to £144.4m last year, as the company reaped the benefits of its investment and restructuring. It bought Continental Cargo Carriers of Belgium this year.
