Back in 2009 it was time for CEL to move out of Chris' garage and into a real office. We needed more space, more phone lines and proper business broadband. For our first move we went to a serviced office and used a warehouse storage service for our stock. At the time we really struggled to find a warehouse service which could also provide pick and pack fulfilment services. Eventually we found someone and started to use them but it was far from ideal, they were big with a lot of customers and other stock, we were small with stock which was precious to us but not to them.
Costs dropped, order accuracy and stock control was greatly improved and we were able to improve service to customers and reduce admin time. As our order numbers grew our shipping costs dropped, suddenly we had couriers knocking on the door offering the lowest rates for UK and International shipping. DHL, DPD and TNT, UPS, Parcelforce, Hermes and Royal Mail all coming to us to try and get our business, larger shipments and pallet orders go out regularly through Sureway and Palletforce and shipping containers are delivered and unloaded regularly.
Now that we are settled in we realised that we can offer our skills excellent courier and logistics rates and our excess warehouse space to others in similar situations. We are a small local company and would love to have similar small local companies or those further away who need a local base come and use us as a service or even share our office space.
That is because we are flexible, we are a small business who want to share our experience and make the most of our space and the excellent rates we have built up since we started our business.
Come and have a coffee, meet the team and see what we are all about.
