International Track 200

Since the company started its operations in 1991 as a small air-freight business at Heathrow airport, with a staff of just three, Horizon International Cargo has grown substantially and now employs 90 staff in 11 offices worldwide to handle the demand from clients for its air, sea and storage services. Horizon has opened five overseas offices in the past two years, a strategic move from working with partner companies to wholly owned subsidiaries that founder Nigel Davies predicts will drive business growth. Overseas sales have risen 80% a year, from £2.9m in 2007 to £9.3m in 2009.
