Knowing what you’re about in business is incredibly valuable. At PML we always say keep the main thing the main thing.
For us that ‘main thing’ is logistics and effectively managing the supply chain of temperature sensitive goods.
PML is a family-owned business, we’ve been established for 18 years and we manage the supply chain of temperature sensitive goods — moving perishable cargo by air, by sea, or by road.
In 2015 we were growing the business and increasing the size of our facility. As part of the expansion plan we needed to build some refrigeration and we decided to use asset finance to free up working capital.
We loved the Black Arrow approach. It wasn’t long winded. It was speedy and pragmatic. We met, discussed, signed and received our funding in less than a week from first contact.Mike Parr, Founder and Managing Director
We were introduced to the Black Arrow team and we loved their approach. It wasn’t long-winded. It was speedy and pragmatic. We met, discussed, signed and received our funding in less than a week from first contact. And it has really worked for us — we’re doing well out of it and they are too. What’s nice is the personal contact, we know they’re there when we need them but they don’t phone you up and hassle you.
Thanks to Black Arrow’s help we’ve been able to take on additional work and are now truly international and can follow the sun around the world — whether we’re importing bananas from Cameroon, guavas from Equatorial Guinea or avocados from Israel. No pun intended, but we’ve really taken off.

What the brokers say

I respect Black Arrow because I think they do have an exceptionally strong commercial understanding. There’s an awful lot of experience in that team. They’ve been through the cycle and that means they can think outside the square.Mike Wakefield

I’ve known of Black Arrow for a decade and have transacted business with them for the last two years through my company Moorgate Finance. They underwrite genuinely and get to the bottom of the opportunity …they understand.Tom Roberts
