Felixstowe-based  logistics company Maritime Group has acquired Aegeus Transport, a holding company for Roadways Container Logistics, the fourth largest container transport company in the UK.

The combined business will operate a fleet of 1,300 vehicles and  UK transport and storage network with railports at Tamworth and Tilbury and depots at every major gateway and consumer conurbation. The deal includes 374 employees, a fleet of 241 trucks, all Roadways’ sites at Hainault, Leeds, Manchester, Nursling in Southampton and a state-of-the-art Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal (BIFT) at Birch Coppice in Tamworth, as well as Felixstowe.

John Williams, group managing director of Maritime said: “This is a strategic move and a really excellent fit with Maritime. Altogether the combined business will provide much greater scale, scope and services for customers.” He added: “As a committed market leader, I believe Maritime offers the best long-term future for the business and we look forward to working with Roadways’ customers, suppliers and employees,” said Williams.
