Logistics firm gears up for further growth following expansion

A local logistics solutions firm is building on its six recent award nominations and responding to increasing customer demand by expanding its Operator’s Licence across its three facilities and investing in its staff and services.

Northamptonshire-based transport firm The NX Group, which turned nine years old last month, has taken on eight new staff members following a recent recruitment drive: six permanent drivers, one Warehouse Shift Manager and one Administrator. This takes the company’s staff to a total of over 85 full-time employees, marking significant expansion for a firm which has grown steadily year on year since its beginnings in 2010.

The firm has also celebrated growth in the form of recent contract wins, gaining customers within the beauty and cosmetics sector as well as EU Hauliers. One such customer is Toschi, an Italy-based food products manufacturer which opened its UK division in 2016. Having searched for a logistics company with efficient systems and platforms close to the Midlands, Toschi began working with The NX Group six months ago. 

Alongside these positive developments, The NX Group and its employees have also recently been shortlisted as finalists for an impressive six awards. The company itself is a Northamptonshire Logistics Awards 2019 finalist for SME of the Year and Growth Company of the Year, while Senior Operations Manager Richard Mallard and CE Driver Lee Hemming are finalists for Achiever of the Year and HGV Driver of the Year respectively. Lee is also up for the LGV Driver of the Year Award, along with his colleague Enzo Cotugno, at the Talent in Logistics Awards on 27th June.

Neil Powell, Managing Director at The NX Group, said:

“Customer service is and always has been of paramount importance to all of us here at The NX Group. We are confident that, following our successful driver recruitment campaign, we will be able to continue meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of our current and prospective customers across the UK.”

The firm will be exhibiting at the Northamptonshire Business Expo at the Holiday Inn, Corby on 16th May 2019.

The NX Group is a comprehensive suite of supply chain solutions for businesses that require an extra level of quality and care for their products, including brands such as King of Shaves, incognito®, Asvina and IT Luggage. Based in the Golden Triangle of Logistics in Northamptonshire, its distribution, warehousing and courier divisions have grown year on year, thanks to its emphasis on customer service and its personal approach. The firm operates a dedicated transport service providing security, reliability and an efficient service to customers.
