Celebrating 14 years, the ever-expanding Simpex group welcomed the company on 1st November 2023 with all activities going forward under the Simpex name.

Knight Star Freight was founded by Tim Fisher in 1989 providing Europe-wide road freight services coupled with a first class, focused, customer service.

Supported by his long-standing colleagues June and Claudine, both who have been with the business for over 20 years, they have all seen the company evolve over time, initially specialising in the French market but more recently into customs clearance post-Brexit.

 Tim Fisher – Managing Director – Knight Star Freight said:

“In spending time with the Simpex team this year, I quickly saw how their customer values matched our own, and how they were the perfect fit to acquire Knight Star Freight. I have a great deal of pride in what’s been created here, and it was important that this be protected when looking to retire. I have every faith that the combination of really nice people, experience and services will ensure our customers will remain in good hands at Simpex, and I can see some new services being particularly useful to them"

Simon Beechener – Managing Director - Simpex Express added:

“From the moment I met Tim, I knew that we were on the same page and it’s exciting to see the businesses brought together. With our expanding presence and commitment to outstanding customer service, I feel we are well-positioned to integrate Knight Star Freight's business seamlessly and this strategic move not only broadens Simpex's capabilities, but it also opens opportunities to introduce Knight Star's clients to our well-known express services”.

Simpex continues to grow through tough economic times, and this is testament to the whole team’s efforts. We place high importance on offering real customer service, with great communication, and as we seek to expand further in 2024 with more acquisitions, we endeavour to stay true to our original values
