3PL (Third Party Logistics) with Packaging Supplies

Large & Varied Range Of Services Offered

Outsource to the Experts

A third party logistics (3PL) is a provider of an outsourcing service. This service can be comprehensive and applied to any activity that involves packing, storing and shipping. 3PL can be a single service like transportation, or it can be a bundle of services. This definition sums up the wide range of services that Packaging Supplies can offer.

As a third-party logistics provider, Packaging Supplies have a very flexible approach. Each fulfilment task is different and by using our years of experience, there is always a solution we can offer our customers.

These tasks can fall into many different categories…

Collation and Mailing

This involves arranging individual sheets or other printed components into a predetermined sequence, creating consistent and logical order sets from multiple parts. It also covers personalisation of letters, envelopes or labels to support direct mailing campaigns.

Glueing and Labelling

We offer double-sided taping, hot melt glueing, glue dotting, sticky foam pads and PVA glueing. Labelling from simple identity to barcode labelling and precision application is also available.

Hand Finishing & Assembly

Sometimes the only way to accomplish an assembly is by hand, achieving the highest standards by creating specialised or unique finishes that the product or packaging demands. Our dedicated team is vastly experienced in all aspects of finishing projects with speed and accuracy.

Pick, Pack & Despatch

Pick, pack and despatch — from your customer placing orders to goods being delivered — we provide a complete end-to-end service. We have years of experience, storing, handling, packing and dispatching multiple products daily. This feature is perfect for web-based order fulfilment.

Shrink Wrapping

Our chamber shrink wrap machines are capable of sealing items up to 55cm long x 42cm deep x 25cm high and are ideal for tall, irregular or multi-packs. We have the option to single or multiple shrink and seal — or seal only. Our shrink wrapper is built for use with polyethylene films but works equally well with PVC films.

Stock Management & Storage

With the capacity to hold 700 pallets in our Thatcham warehouse, we can handle and store your products during the period of assembly or stock hold for customers who use our pick and pack services. We also offer various levels of management tailored to individual needs and requirements.


We have a wide range of products available to buy online at very competitive prices and rapid delivery.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
