With the start of 2017 came the announcement that Ray Ludlam had decided to retire, finally bringing to an end a long and successful career in both the manufacturing sector and Freight Forwarding industry.
Ray and his family reached an agreement to sell the Company to I.R.F. Holding B.V. with the acquisition being finalised on Friday 3rd February 2017.

I.R.F. has been a well established transport partner of UFS for 20 years and the acquisition is a logical step in the expansion of both I.R.F. and UFS. As part of the I.R.F. group UFS now has access to the I.R.F. facilities in the Netherlands and Germany and the I.R.F. group can now list UK locations at Thetford, Manchester & Dover in addition to the own established location in Felixstowe.
The staff of UFS and I.R.F. wish Ray a long and healthy retirement and would like thank Ray & the family for their support over the years and UFS can now look forward to an exciting future as part of the I.R.F. group.
