Connect Corporate Finance has successfully facilitated Emerge Global's investment in Britam Shipping

We recently assisted the shareholders of Emerge Global on its direct investment into global shipping and Logistics company Britam Shipping.

Connect’s client Emerge, headquartered in the Northwest of England, is a domestic and international logistics company, offering supply chain solutions for manufacturers to consumers. From international air & sea forwarding, UK integrated warehousing, pan-European network logistics, and B2B + B2C final mile delivery, via its own extensive fleet of vehicles.

Established in Essex during 2010, Britam Shipping started out offering refrigerated services from Latin America and handling containerised imports of foodstuffs from the USA.  The service was expanded five years later in 2015, to include import services from the Far East and India. Britam continued its impressive growth by acquiring Salsa Shipping Ltd in 2017 and began offering export and breakbulk/project services to Latin America and other major markets globally from the UK and Europe. In April 2020, Britam opened a 40,000 square ft warehouse in West Yorkshire, offering a complete warehousing solution in addition to UK and European distribution services. Later that same year, they commenced a global airfreight service as per client demand.

This investment reinforces Emerge’s group-wide growth objective, and develops its forwarding and logistics position, strengthening the platform for further success in the sector. The transaction will benefit clients, suppliers, and employees of both businesses, enabling the group of companies to offer an enhanced suite of services, to new and existing clients.
