Advising on the disposal of MKT Logistics Ltd to Turners (Soham) Ltd

Privately owned transport company, Turners (Soham) Ltd, has acquired 100% shareholding in MKT Logistics Limited.

MKT Logistics is the holding company of Shakespeare Transport Limited, Fullforce Logistics Limited and Matthew Kibble Transport Limited. It runs a fleet of approximately 90 trucks and operates in both Pallet-Track and Palletforce.

Marlies Hoecherl, Jordan Thomas and Cath James acted for Matthew Kibble as the sole shareholder of the holding company. Matthew will remain in the business for the next five years at least, working closely with Paul Day, MD of Turners.

For me this was all about the future of MKT Logistics and succession planning. Capital’s advice has been crucial to help ensure a smooth transition, while taking my business to the next level. The team’s responsiveness and in-depth understanding of the disposal process made it a very positive experience. I now look forward to working with Paul on growing MKT further over the coming years.
