Fast-growing logistics firm hires Hotfoot

Commercial trucking, haulage and courier services company, Forge Logistics has hired Hotfoot Design to upgrade its online presence to reflect its recent rapid growth.

Preston-based Forge was founded by former Army Air Corps servicemen, Jamie Keen and James Rose-Shaw in 2018 with a fleet of five courier vans. Twenty months later, it now has 83 vehicles, including HGVs, out delivering on contracts across the UK. 

Jamie Keen said: "The speed at which Forge grew during the first 18 months took James and I by surprise, and that is testament to all the hard work of the Forge team. And over the last few months - powered by the rise in online shopping due to Covid-19 - our team has been working even harder to meet the exceptional demand for our services."

Hotfoot Design, the Lancaster agency run by partners Charlie Haywood, Aidan Watt and Guy Cookson, has been chosen to deliver a new website that will support Forge’s exceptional growth as they move forward into year two of the business. 

James added: “Moving into our second year in business, we now need to focus our efforts on improving and growing our digital presence to better communicate what our company has to offer. We absolutely love Hotfoot’s work for other clients, and their standard of work and experience in B2B and our sector really stood out. We can’t wait to see what Hotfoot does for Forge."

Charlie Haywood, creative director at Hotfoot, said: "We’re tremendously excited to have been chosen by Forge Logistics and to work alongside them to create the company’s new website. Forge’s ambition is inspiring, and our team will be dedicated to supporting its growth by doing what we do best, which is creating work that clearly communicates a client’s expertise, builds trust and adds credibility to its offering."
