TPS Global Logistics are a leading global logistics service provider for e-commerce and time-critical cargo industries.
From its formation in 2003 with just three staff, the company expanded into Kent 11 years ago and now employs forty people at a new 60,000 sq ft warehouse and office space in Aylesford, just outside Maidstone.
Joining together with their sister company, CRM Logistics, and operating together from one space meant the group were able to work smoothly and more efficiently together, offering clients a more robust and improved service.
Locate in Kent helped the team with their property search when they were looking for their new facility at Aylesford. Operating the business from Kent has had major advantages such as easy access to transport links with major roads such as the M25 on their doorstep as well as Eurotunnel and the ability to move goods within international trade routes.
The company prides itself on creating bespoke logistic solutions for the door to door delivery of goods worldwide and are used to working with high net worth industry sectors.
Matt Smith from TPS said, “Being close to London is a huge advantage for accessing skilled workers and meeting with major international clients. Of course, this all comes with the added incentive of lower overheads and reduced day-to-day running costs, when compared to managing a business from a London postcode.”
The company has been involved in the handling of project cargo for large, globally recognised events such as the Olympics and FIFA World Cup, firmly putting it on the map as a major player within the industry. They are also proud winners of a Queens Award for Enterprise.
“Not only did Locate in Kent assist with our property search but they provided us with some great business contacts in Kent as well as potential new customers, which has definitely helped us to continue growing our business within the county. Locate in Kent also introduced us to international companies who may require our services and as a result we have secured new business.”
