  • Well-placed to profit from increase in non-EU freight
  • Undervalued versus sector peers

It’s not often that a cash-rich company is priced on a PE ratio of 10 and offers a decent dividend yield after upgrading profit guidance. But that’s the tantalising prospect on offer at this UK-based company that has been providing international freight management services for more than 30 years.

Both themes are great news for this international freight management service provider.  It makes money by shipping goods between the UK and nine Central and Eastern European countries.
