Walker Logistics named as one of the South-East’s fastest growing SMEs

Online fulfillment and supply chain services specialist, Walker Logistics Ltd, is among the top 10 companies listed in this year’s Thames Valley (TV) SME Growth 100.

The TV SME Growth 100 ranks the South East’s leading privately owned SME companies based on year-on-year growth. It is open to businesses with a turnover between £1m and £20m located in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Kent, Sussex and the Isle of Wight.

Charlie Walker, Walker Logistics Ltd’s head of marketing, commented: “Each company that makes it on to the Thames Valley SME Growth 100 has distinguished itself through its remarkable performance and the outstanding efforts and dedication of its team. We are delighted to be included among so many high-growth companies and to feature in the Top 10 is particularly pleasing.”

One of the UK’s fastest growing third party logistics services companies, Walker Logistics, operates over 250,000 sq ft of high quality, ambient temperature warehousing space from a modern, multi-client facility in Membury, which is located close to Junction 14 of the M4 in Berkshire. 

Walker offers omni-channel fulfilment and distribution services as well as operating its own fleet of vehicles. The company has long term contracts with over 50 UK and International clients in a variety of sectors who all benefit from Walker’s customer driven approach, flexibility and high-quality standards

To keep pace with demand for its services Walker is building an additional 135,000 sq ft warehouse on land adjacent to its existing site. Construction of the multi-million pound development is projected to be complete by the end of 2023 and the company plans to recruit some 200 new permanent staff once the facility becomes fully operational.
