Seaspace International Marks 30th Anniversary

International logistics provider and exclusive UK IASA member Seaspace International are celebrating their 30th anniversary, one month after opening their third warehouse facility in Gatwick, West Sussex.

Adjacent to London Gatwick Airport, it’s the second warehouse opening for the company in the last 18 months, in the same estate as their head offices. Acquired due to an increased demand in their air and sea freight services, it will allow the team to store an extra 360 standard pallets, with the ability to expand this to 525 pallets.
