Fast Track 100

This logistics expert operates in some of the most hazardous and far-flung locations in the world. It helped an oil company transport equipment to the Majnoon oilfield near Basra in Iraq, for example, and also has an office in Sierra Leone to service mining firms in the region. Sales rose to £160.4m last year, boosted by its largest project to date – a £125m deal with a mining company to move gigantic machinery to Western Australia. Trans Global is led by Colin Charnock, 54, who bought the business in 2007 with fellow director, Martin Welchman, 58.
