Logistics business announces international growth with USA and China office openings
Liverpool-based global shipping and logistics company, Brunswick International, has announced plans for overseas expansion.
The business, which was founded more than 30 years ago, is set to open new offices in America and China next year, as well as in London.
The company originally started in Brunswick Dock before moving to Kirkdale 20 years ago. Last year, it opened a new £2m headquarters in Hunts Cross, South Liverpool.
Brunswick International has reported significant growth in its business since Brexit with its customs department increasing in trade by 500%.
This is largely due to companies needing assistance with the new documentation requirements to move goods throughout the world as a result of Britain leaving the Customs Union.
The firm is also reporting increased operations within the American and Chinese markets, which will see the opening of offices there.
The first international office will open in Dallas, Texas, in the first half of 2022, and this will be followed by premises in Shanghai towards the end of the year.
Brunswick International co-founder, Steve Crane, said: “Everyone at Brunswick International is extremely excited for what will be a huge 2022.
“Over the last 30 years the company has embarked on a solid trajectory of growth which has sped up significantly during the last couple of years.
“The opening of further offices in America and China, as well as our new office in London, will be game changing for the business. It will position us as a world leader in logistics and that is our ambition.
“Increased work from the United States and China mean this is essential for our growth.”
He added: “There has never been a better time to be involved in the logistics business.
“The solid foundations we have built at Brunswick will future-proof our facilities and allow us to thrive as technology in the industry advances and we globalise further.”
