Hemisphere Acquires Barton Freight Services

Clock  2 minutes to read

We’re excited to announce that Hemisphere Freight Services has acquired Barton Freight Services, expanding our expertise and bringing new faces into the business.

HFS has had a close relationship with the team at Barton Freight Services for years, working together on many occasions. Barton shares Hemisphere’s high standards of service and customer care, making this move a natural progression for all involved.

The acquisition sees us welcome Clare Moss, former Director and Head of Operations, to the HFS team as a Key Accounts Manager. Clare will be working from the existing Barton base in Surrey, as well as interacting with Hemisphere’s other facilities as required. Having worked as part of a smaller team at Barton, it is great to be bringing Clare into the Hemisphere fold, providing both her and her clients with a wider support network.

Andy Perrin, our Founder and Director, said: “It is brilliant to have merged two like-minded independent logistics providers. We have been lucky enough to work with Clare Moss at Barton for many years; she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Hemisphere team.”

Clare said: “I’m delighted to be part of the Hemisphere team. It’s a great opportunity to broaden my own horizons and offer a wider range of services to my clients. Hemisphere and Barton Freight Services share the same standards and values, so it’s a perfect move for both parties.”

Clare’s wealth of experience is already making a positive impact on the Hemisphere team; her specialist knowledge of antiques shipping will enable us to expand our expertise in this area as well as complementing many of our existing services, including our bespoke packing service. Having this expertise in-house is an advantage for both Hemisphere and our clients.

You can get in touch with Clare at cmoss@hemisphere-freight.com or 01372 720 829. Alternatively, please feel free to speak to a member of our team on 01473 550 800 or anyone else across our various UK sites.
