Making Sense of the Numbers
Long standing Lewis Smith & Co. client “Möbile – people.powered.logistics” is reaping the benefits of a modernisation and rebranding programme it started last year.
The Birmingham-based company, which was founded 35 years ago under the name Mobile Freight Services, has seen turnover increase by nearly 60% to £4.1m. That is an incredible achievement in such a competitive industry as transport and logistics.
Commercial Director Ian Jolly says that the company’s new name holds the answer to its success:
“We added to our vehicle fleet and the technology that goes with it, but more importantly we continued to invest in our people.
Möbile has an excellent working environment that brings a high standard of customer care and low staff turnover. We are known for getting deliveries right first time and sorting out queries straight away.”
Lewis Smith & Co. has been able to help the company manage through this growth phase by providing regular financial analysis and reporting. It’s very much a hands-on service with our people operating as part of the Möbile team.
Ian says that Möbile benefits from Lewis Smith & Co.’s objective financial perspective:
“Andrew (Smith) and his staff supplement our understanding of the business with their skill in making sense of the numbers.
The detailed budgets, clear forecasts and effective reporting that Lewis Smith & Co. have helped us develop are key tools in enabling our expansion.”
Möbile is heading towards a further 25% increase in turnover by the end of the year as it continues to win contracts for palletised freight distribution and dedicated transport systems. It is showing its commitment to growth by setting up a driver apprenticeship scheme to develop the skills of some young recruits.
Andrew Smith, director at Lewis Smith & Co. believes that Möbile is a great example of what happens when you put passion and precision together:
“Möbile is really serious about delivering excellence. The business operation is set-up to exceed customer expectations and the financial operation makes sure that what happens is profitable. This is a company that will go far.”
