Road haulage and logistics specialist celebrates 10 years in business

Owner and founder Kevin Lawrenson tells us why: “In these economically challenging times, being part of the community has never been more important.”

2022 is a big year for Felixstowe-based haulage company 3PL, marking ten years since its formation.

Experiencing year-on-year growth, the company that mainly serves the ports of Felixstowe and London Gateway has come a long way since opening and now operates a modern fleet of over 100 vehicles and employs 45 staff.

Kevin Lawrenson, managing director, says: “Ten years has seen a lot of changes for the company, but two things that have remained constant are our passion for excellence in customer service; and our commitment to supporting our hometown wherever and whenever we can.

“Sport is a shared passion across 3PL, so we’re delighted that we can show our support at a grassroots level. I’ve been involved with Felixstowe Rugby Club for over 30 years. It was an extraordinary moment when the ground was renamed the 3PL Rugby Ground earlier this summer, especially as it was the first name change since the ground was opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh almost seventy years before.

“With the women winning the first major football title since 1966 on Sunday, we must ensure our youngsters have the facilities and opportunities to develop their skills. We’re particularly pleased to sponsor the Seasiders’ junior teams.

“Keen there is a benefit for all, we also sponsored the Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club and purchased a 32-foot-long coxed and six-oared rowing boat – St Ethelreda, or Ethel as she’s known earlier this year, which members of the Felixstowe Sailing Club enjoy down at the Ferry.

“In these economically challenging times, being part of the community has never been more important. Felixstowe is a special place, not least for the people that live and work here. The success of 3PL is 100% down to our brilliant team’s dedication and ‘make it happen’ approach. And whilst ten years is a great milestone, here’s looking forward to the next ten and keeping true to those values that 3PL was formed on.”
