18 Years – Karl Dawson Reflects

Port Express has just turned 18 years old, maybe not a major milestone for businesses, but very significant for any 17 year old approaching their eighteenth birthday.

So, what can an 18 year old do…

  • Vote
  • Buy alcohol
  • Get a mortgage or rent a house
  • Get credit cards or loans
  • Get married without parental consent
  • Gamble or buy a lottery ticket
  • Get a tattoo

Since we have no immediate plans to get a tattoo, we’ve asked Managing Director – Karl Dawson – to reflect on our eighteen years:

Karl said I had the honour of setting the company up back in 2004, little did I know then that I was about to embark on such a tremendous journey. I am extremely proud to have witnessed the company flourish and develop into a leading and respected logistics supplier within our industry.

Year on year investment in both staff and equipment has enabled Port Express to become both stronger and more competitive and has set the stage for continued growth and development over the years.

Whilst we have continued to have year on year growth, I would like to think that we have maintained a high degree of integrity in the way we go about our business for both our customers and staff alike. Without our valued customers and staff, we wouldn’t be the company we are today.

Congratulations and thanks to all of those involved in Port Express’s success.
