Freight wine business in administration

Published:  22 January, 2009

Anglo Overseas, one of the largest shippers and logistics companies servicing the UK wine trade, has been placed into administration.

The company's website said the action had been taken "due to ongoing financial difficulties".

Glyn Mummery and Jeremy French of Vantis Business Recovery Services are the appointed administrators.

Anglo Overseas Wine, based at Dover, acts as a specialist forwarder to the wine and spirits trade and has bonded warehouses in London. The company is a member of the Wine & Spirit Trade Association and plays a prominent part in its Freight Forwarders Group.

The company has 14 branch offices and is part of the Ziegler Group , one of the top three players in the freight industry.
