Customs agent providing cross-border solutions for retailers shipping directly to consumers in the UK or EU is moving to Westcott Venture Park.
UK Postings Ltd, trading as UKP Worldwide (UKPW) has signed an agreement to lease on a 10,000 sq ft warehouse with offices at Unit 12 Century Court. UKPW is set to relocate its 25 staff and head quarter operations to Westcott in January next year.
UKPW established over 20 years’ provides middle-mile logistics and customs services for haulage, 3PLs and retail business shipping to and from the EU. They ship millions of parcels internationally and specialise in bulk clearance of eCommerce orders, offering end-to-end delivery including customs clearance and returns logistics.
All shipments are processed using its in-house accredited system, taking care of all mandatory GB and EU customs declarations and requirements on the retailer’s behalf. This ensures duty and VAT are accounted for and that goods flow seamlessly across the borders. UKPW also manages the client returns process through an automated duty reclaim process.
The business is currently operating from three separate warehouses in Wornal Park, Worminghall, so the move to Westcott will bring its operations under one roof and provide room for further expansion.
UKPW CEO, Lee Bucktrout explains: “We have enjoyed significant growth and our new facility will streamline our operations and provide us with the space to expand in order to realise our full potential.
“Westcott Venture Park is a fantastic location for our business, providing us with an exceptional working environment that is strategically located and most importantly can accommodate our ongoing growth.
“We look forward to moving to the Park and utilising the services of Westcott based businesses and being able to provide our services to other onsite businesses.”
Nigel MacKenzie, Development Manager at Westcott said: “UKPW is a great addition to the Park, everyone is delighted to secure them as a new tenant. Westcott is a place for businesses to secure their future in a location that offers unrivalled security and space to grow, and we look forward to the business prospering at the Park.”
