Specialist Logistics Services Ltd (SLS) are a freight forwarder that offer a turnkey service for the movement of out of gauge and abnormal cargo and has been successfully delivering to clients old and new, for many years. They pride themselves in offering bespoke solutions for the movement of all challenging cargo.
Following a long and successful career in project cargo, owner, and founder Martin Burgess, has decided to retire from the board as of April this year. Everyone wishes Martin all the best as he begins his retirement.
Reimer Ltd, who also own Doherty Heavy Haulage (Doherty’s) are now the new proud owners of Specialist Logistics Services Ltd and its partner company Martin Burgess Logistics Ltd.
The new Managing Director of SLS, Hasan Huseyin says “I’m excited about the new take over. I have a fantastic and knowledgeable team working alongside me and we all look forward to the bright future ahead!” Going forward, Hasan will also remain at the helm of Doherty heavy haulage, along with Darren.
Doherty’s, based in Luton, are well established in the field of heavy haulage with their ever-growing fleet of low loaders, variety of specialist trailers and equipment. SLS and Doherty’s have worked together seamlessly for many years and so a takeover and merge of skills seemed like an obvious choice and a smart business move!
This new takeover will enable SLS to directly utilise Doherty’s fleet of vehicles, offering more competitive rates on UK moves. However, both companies are still running independently, and it is business as usual for our staff and clients.
Martin Burgess says, “I will always be indebted to my former directors and current colleagues for making the business the success it has become and the shear hard work and effort has paid off in the end allowing for the business to have bright future ahead of it under Reimers control”.
