Irish-based Coll-8 Logistics has revealed how it is on course for further expansion following a year of “unprecedented growth”.
Coll-8 Logistics has described how it has seen turnover, client, employee and depot numbers at least double in the space of the last 12 months. Founder and Chief Operations Officer, Dave Field, has said that progress made during the period fully justified the extensive investment in systems and specialists since the company launched just three years ago.
Mr Field explained that Coll-8 has recently opened two new depots in the Irish Republic and the UK to accommodate the extra work. He added that Coll-8 was now responsible for processing 40 per cent of all declarations arising from e-commerce sales recorded by the country’s customs service. “We are all truly delighted to see the effort paying off. Together, we have put together a team capable enough to cope with dramatically changing commercial and economic circumstances to help our growing number of clients. “By creating the technological structure which allows us to operate very differently to our competitors and make a real difference to the logistics industry and the environment is a source of particular pride. “Even though the past year has seen us take remarkable forward strides, we are confident that we are nowhere near realising our true potential. “In the months to come, I believe that we can really capitalise on the movement which we have built up and show the merits of the systems which we have created in-house.” Mr Field has disclosed that even before the start of this year’s festive online shopping boom, Coll-8 is already dealing with 62,000 declarations, 40 per cent of the current total volume. Mr Field has also stated that the company is well on target to record more than €11 million in sales by the end of this year – double the previous year’s outcome.
