CM Downton rebrands and plans “sustained growth”

Moreton Valence, Gloucestershire, UK: CM Downton is rebranding to carry the new owner’s name EV Cargo Logistics, one of six business divisions within EV Cargo.

It will offer a full UK-wide logistics and warehousing service, covering both chilled and ambient logistics, across the same operational structure.

EV Cargo says the rebrand will provide Downton with the platform for “sustained growth as it takes advantage of the opportunity to operate under a single global brand, allowing the company to expand its customer offering and take a seamless approach to operations”.

Duncan Eyre, EV Cargo Logistics chief executive, said: “The Downton name is synonymous with service and an ethos to go the extra mile for its customers.

“Rebranding to EV Cargo Logistics will allow it to build on that legacy and help secure a bright future for the business by expanding its customer offering. It will create advantages for customers in terms of operations, service and the ability to minimise cost increases by operating a lean structure as part of the global EV Cargo business,” he said.
