Group experience and know-how
Creativity, care, reliability and superior customer service in global deliveries
Spatial Global is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Keswick Enterprises Group Limited – UK-based logistics & supply chain services group.
Keswick Enterprises was formed in 2004 by John Harvey CBE (left) and associates to make strategic investments and acquisitions in supply chain-related businesses. Through proactive management it aims to add know-how and experience to accelerate the development of its member companies.
All Keswick Board members were closely involved with UK-based inter-continental contract logistics giant Tibbett & Britten Group plc until its £328 million takeover by Exel (now DHL Supply Chain) in 2004. Together with their former colleagues they were responsible for growing its revenues from £30 million in 1984 to £1,600 million just two decades later.
There are few organisations in the world with the depth of supply chain management experience and all-round logistics know-how of Keswick Enterprises.
