25 Years and counting
Page Freight Services Ltd – Est 1998
Written by Company Director , Trisha.
After many years at Heathrow Airport I returned back to my roots in Nottingham.
I worked from the bottom to the top in my profession but from when I first set foot into this industry the deep desire to run my own Freight Forwarding business would never go away.
To provide a professional, friendly helpful service MY WAY.
PAGE Freight Services was born!
– with my Parent’s pushing me to not give up and my son only being 7 who was always so excited to be at my side, who could give up !!
The first few years are always the worst, with no financial help, an office expenditure, doubt was beginning to show.
But then a break a few more Companies put their trust in me, and to this day they are still with us.
Ask me anything about Freight forwarding 100% anything – but racking and pallet trucks this was going to be fun.
Now 10 years on I have a small team working with me with the same passion to provide an excellent service to all our customers.
We started with small amount of storage providing Pick & Packs and bulk distribution, and as the years went on we gained more customers who wanted more space and services.
Safe to say my original business plan had now extended slightly!
From a small dedicated warehouse space for a treasured few customers we now move to our new site based in Colwick.
This was a big step, for me and of course the business, but so exciting!
Now with dedicated storage and fulfillment services, UK Parcels & Pallets, International courier, Airfreight, Seafreight, Exports & Imports
Small parcels to full container loads, we handle it all!
I knew what I wanted my business to do.
Yes we are a Freight forwarder, yes we are dedicated to everything we do.
But one side of my business has seen strives I didn’t ever think I could achieve, thanks to YOU ALL
Fulfilment at a MAX
Not pallets and pallets of long term storage.
Careful, selective customers who want an extension to their business run like they would run their own warehouse. Accessible for every pick, 100’s of different products all clean tidy and correctly stored.
Pick and packing services same day despatches a service provided by a freight forwarder, knowing any Country is never an issue, any challenge welcomed.
Exhibition material delivered to the door of the exhibition as ordered from pens to machines and for every delivery there is a return safe and sound.
Our services are bespoke to the customer’s needs
So the next chapter of our ever growing business, it’s with heartfelt thanks, 20 years of my life and without all my dedicated customers it would not of been possible.
We now have 2 warehouses on site, and we are pretty sure this wont be enough space soon!
Maybe another move is due…
March 2020 – July 2021 – we all know what happened here, COVID-19.
A worldwide Pandemic, I cant find any words to sum up this scary time.
As with majority of businesses all our staff where sent home for months, and we didn’t see each other for a long time.
Myself, my son & daughter in law kept the business running – classed as Essential Business we did what we needed, but nothing more. Sending out important deliveries.
Getting through these years was the biggest challenge we had ever faced.
Towards the end of 2021, having got through the worst of the Pandemic, it was back to “Business as usual”.
An opportunity came and we just had to take it.
Just a stones throw away from our current warehouses, another unit became available. Offering us much more space and all under one roof!
So we went for it and the run up to Christmas was probably one of the busiest times we had faced yet.
We began moving premises, whilst making sure all our customers received no disruptions during the move.
This involved some long late nights, and the Christmas break was well deserved.
Hopefully we wont need to move again for a while now…
July 2023 we are celebrating 25 years of Page Freight Services Ltd.
To all the loyal, long-standing customers who have been with us from the beginning, the current customers who continue to trust and rely on our services, and the new customers who have joined our journey, the whole team extends its heartfelt gratitude. Your support and partnership have been invaluable in shaping Page Freight Services Ltd into the successful and respected company it is today.
As I reflect on the journey that has brought us to this milestone, I take pride in our accomplishments , we have overcome challenges, embraced opportunities and this anniversary marks not only a celebration of the past but also a stepping stone toward a future filled with new horizons, continued growth, and even greater achievements.
Here’s to the next 25 years and beyond!
