We started like you
Now we have a lot to share that can make your business easier and more profitable.
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.
After a few months we moved to our own warehouse with office space on Harbour Road Trading Estate in Portishead and started to do our own fulfilment.
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.
New projects attracted more staff and larger orders and stock requirements meant we had to upsize our operation and move to a larger space. Now here we are, just around the corner in Harbourmead near the Portishead Harbour. Our warehouse is more than we need so space is flexible and we have a huge office. We have very friendly and efficient warehouse and admin teams who ship our orders all over the world using a range of courier and logistics services.
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.
