eCommerce Fulfilment and Logistics provider 3PL enjoyed a record-breaking December, building on a year that has seen huge growth and significant investment for the Wigan-based company.
Black Friday saw 3PL successfully fulfil over 50,000 customer orders and a total of over 250,000 orders across the entire Christmas Period – a 600% increase on 2018.
It says that continual investment and updates to carrier management systems, warehouse software and a move to 24-hour operations has created the perfect environment to deliver record-breaking figures for their customers and offer faster shipping and better courier rates.
3PL, which recently opened a new 55,000 sq. ft facility now has access to over 250,000 sq. ft of flexible warehousing space across its national and international networks and has earned a number of significant client wins throughout the year including Accentuate Games (featured on the BBC’ Dragons Den) nutritional supplements retailer Natures Plus and Innovative Swiss water bottle designer SIGG.
“2019 was a defining year throughput wise where a step change was made in scale of operations. This would not have been possible without significant infrastructure investment to facilitate such growing demand,” said 3PL Founder & Managing Director Ian Walker. “Rounding off 2019 with a record peak season is especially satisfying and sets us up for another record year in 2020.”
Based in Wigan, 3PL offers multichannel ecommerce fulfilment for growing brands and established retailers. As an end-to-end fulfilment solution, 3PL operates from over 250,000 sq. ft of shared user warehousing in the UK, supported by access to a network of International warehouses to support global expansion for its clients. Its fast-moving operations house over 16 million items of stock, and dispatch across some 32,000 product lines.
