Felixstowe shipping experts expand business to bring services in house

on 04 May 2017


A local shipping company with combined staff experience of almost 100 years in the trade is expanding its business to bring additional services in-house.

 Globex Freight Management, formerly of Parker Avenue in Felixstowe, has launched a new  warehousing facility, offering  7000 sq ft of warehousing space for client goods.

 Having offered an outsourced warehousing service to date, company directors Shaun Rudduck and  Andy Wilding took the decision to bring the service in-house, as they looked to provide a better  service to customers than was being offered by third parties. 

 They can now offer full storage of cargo as well as pick, pack, sort and labelling and special order  handling. The team has moved its office from Felixstowe to the warehouse site on Anson Road in  Martlesham, allowing them easy access to client cargo. Along with team member's Kim Wilding and  Carl Hawes, Nick Wilding leads on the handling of the warehousing function, being responsible for  the management of goods as they enter and exit the warehouse.

The business has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2003, providing shipping and freight forwarding services to a diverse range of customers.  Andy and Shaun have decades of experience in the industry, having both worked for major corporates before forming Globex, bringing a wealth of expertise to the company.

Having achieved Authorised Economic Operator status (AEO) in May 2011, Globex has been formally recognized as a trusted business within the international supply chain and looks to provide the sophistication of a large corporate organisation with the attention to detail of a small, local business.

Company founder Andy Wilding said, “We’re delighted to be able to offer a full warehousing service to our customers.  This allows us to take full ownership of our clients’ cargo from shipment to onward travel in the UK.

“We knew we wanted to offer a level of service that would make our customers trust us and come back to us again and again in the future, and the only way to do that with complete confidence is to provide the service ourselves. We are really looking forward to meeting new customers as we widen our offering to any business looking for affordable and high quality complete shipping services.”

The Globex team can now be found at Unit 5, Anson Road, Martlesham Heath, Ipswich IP5 3RG.
