Sussex based freight forwarders Seaspace International, founded in 1988, have marked their 30th anniversary with the acquisition of a third warehouse at their site in Gatwick. The new warehouse is the second they’ve opened in the last 18 months and has the expansion capabilities to house 525 pallets.
Operating from major ports across the world including those in Europe, South East Asia, the United Arab Emirates, and the USA, the team has expanded significantly from humble beginnings and are the exclusive UK member of the International Air & Shipping Association (IASA).
Originally based in small offices with a staff of two, the company has grown to a staff of over 30 and work with a range of large blue-chip clients. Part of their success is an ethos based on the use of innovative technology and a continued focus on quality customer service. Many clients have been with Seaspace International for years and this retention is a highlight for Managing Director Gordon Humphrey.
Gordon joined Seaspace in 1991 and has since spearheaded the independent company to international success. He states, ‘As we celebrate 30 successful years it’s a milestone we’re all proud to mark with the opening of our third warehouse, which is the second warehouse acquisition in the last 18 months.
Currently there are questions raised about trade – import and export – within Europe once the UK leaves the EU in March 2019. However, which such a secure and recognised role in air and sea freight, Seaspace International are confident that any issues can be resolved with their forward thinking approach.
Gordon adds, ‘It’s incredibly positive that we are seeing an increased demand for our services and we’re perfectly placed to continue operating at a high level whilst any potential complications from the final trade deal are navigated.’
