LIFE COURIERS STRIVES FOR FURTHER GROWTH
The main strategies for the further growth of LIFE COURIERS are:
Increasing the network density, by adding regional enlargements to the existing logistics infrastructure both in North America, and in Europe
Adding new areas of speciality in the life science and the industrial emergency division
Building up of own infrastructure in continents that (so far) are handled via the LIFE COURIERS partner network (i.e. Life Science activities in Asia and in South America)
LIFE COURIERS is currently managing a considerable acquisition pipeline to generate these growth potentials. A dedicated business development team is handling and executing this pipeline with operational excellence.
What we are looking for
The company of interest must be engaged in a special logistics service of some kind. Simple forwarders and city couriers are uninteresting, as are land-based heavy transports. At best, the company is already internationally active.
Basically, the following competences and products are of interest (not conclusive):
- Logistics for pharmaceutical products and sensitive materials
- Logistical peculiarities such as security, considerable administrative effort, special regulations
- Transports with special hygienic regulations or with special size requirements
- Live transports including organ transports and food transports (airfreight)
- Logistics service providers for problem situations (e.g. return of corpses)
- Spare parts logistics, especially AOG (Aircraft-on-Ground), ship spare parts or drilling logistics
In principle, we prefer special logistic service providers with asset-light or asset-free business models, preferably with synergy effects to the existing LIFE COURIERS companies. In principle, land and sea transport as well as order picking and warehousing are also worth considering as possible forms.
Many entrepreneurs are currently reaching an age that makes them think about retirement: when to start the process and how to shape the future of the company? After all, their own business represents a large part of the personally created assets. In addition to its focus on sustainable growth, LIFE COURIERS has specialized as a partner for company succession. Thus, LIFE COURIERS offers the perfect match for companies whose shareholders cannot or do not want to implement their own succession.
LIFE COURIERS can offer a variety of competencies in this area. We see ourselves as a partner who, through its broad network of specialist logistics experts, actively supports entrepreneurs in finding the right candidate for their succession and in initiating a generational change in a transitional phase - naturally according to the personal wishes and premises of the entrepreneur and at a time that is right for him. In parallel, our financial strength enables the entrepreneur to secure a large part of his assets and, in line with his preferences, to continue to participate in the success of the group's growth.
