Transportation of commercial cargo requires a solid understanding of the business needs of both the sender and the receiver, as well as the customs regulations in the destination country. Sellers will always be anxious to meet the demands of their buyer without necessarily having a full understanding of the legal requirements in foreign markets. Our commercial team understand how business works as well as how international freight needs to work for everyone involved in the shipping process.
Our online tracking system means all parties are kept fully informed and our customer service team are able to respond to enquiries late at night and early in the morning to allow for global time differences. Our systems are fully linked to the UK customs computer system giving us total control and visibility into import and export movements at all customs warehouses.
Moving private goods is where we began! We have a team of experts dedicated to freighting personal effects worldwide. Our skilled export packing crews can safely wrap delicate items such as televisions, glassware and antiques to survive the rigours of intercontinental transit. We offer secure storage in the UK or at destination and shipments can be fully insured for your peace of mind. Once your goods arrive at the destination we can provide full delivery and unpacking at your new home, or leave you to unpack at your leisure – collecting waste materials for recycling at a later date.
We are a genuinely intermodal freight forwarder, able to combine the best of air, sea, road and rail to provide a solution that matches your needs. In many cases the closest port to the final destination is not necessarily the quickest or most cost-effective way to move a consignment. Sometimes carriage by air can work out cheaper than sea or road. Our unique local experience means we can offer insight into alternative routes that may be faster or cheaper than the most obvious choice.
