A DELIVERY company which works with small and medium businesses has opened in Newhaven.

First 4 Logistics is part of the APC Overnight national network.

It has opened a 7,000 square foot warehouse on Avis Way with more than 20 staff.

Director Chris Aldridge said: “The small business scene in Brighton is booming with the region fast becoming the top destination for start-up businesses in the UK.

“Our expertise lies in helping these small businesses succeed and expand by offering them the very best tailored delivery solutions.

“Our main point of difference is our unrivalled knowledge of both our customers and their businesses.

“We fundamentally believe that we must stay local in order to help the small businesses on the south coast thrive and support the exciting local economy”.

First 4 Logistics is run by three business partners – Chris Aldridge, Tom Flood and Sarah Flood – all of whom have worked in the logistics industry for the past ten years.
