A Suffolk logistics firm is celebrating a move to a new UK office and lorry park.
A2B-online’s new site is next to an existing commercial truck stop at Orwell Crossing, Nacton, Ipswich, which lies next to the A14 and close to Felixstowe port, through which many of its consignments come and go.
Historically, the firm’s lorries parked in various locations around Felixstowe and it has been on the lookout for a suitable home for more than a year before finding the site, which includes 50 HGV parking spaces.
Estate agents Fenn Wright represented A2B-online in negotiating the acquisition of the site, and the company moved in earlier this month.
A2B-online boss Rinus Scheijde said: “Over the last two years, our business has grown from 10 to 46 trucks and we plan to continue expanding at 10% per year for the next five years. The new base at Orwell Crossing will play an important role in our future expansion as it will allow us more control over our work by keeping our trucks all parked in one place. While we expect the lorry park will be full to capacity within the next year, the office space at Orwell Crossing is future-proofed as it has been designed and built off-site in modular form, which means we can quickly add another level as and when we outgrow the existing space.”
