Managers buy out Ipswich container transport firm (EADT)

A Suffolk container transport firm has been bought out by its management team for an undisclosed sum.

RPS Transport (Ipswich) Limited, which is based in the town and operates out of the Port of Felixstowe, London Gateway and London container terminals for clients across mainland UK, has been snapped up by managers of more than 14 years Jason Duff and Simon Cuthbert after the owner - Jason’s father, Robert Duff - agreed to a management buy-out.

Mr Cuthbert said: “Both the outgoing director and ourselves were all in agreement that this was a good time to pass the baton and allow us to move forward by ourselves. We are fortunate that RPS has some very strong foundations and that will allow us to develop some new ideas and continue providing an exceptional level of service within the container transport sector.”
