Rapid Shipping are a leading UK based international cargo company. We offer a full range of cargo shipping options from the UK to all major worldwide destinations. With a choice of either depot-to-port, or full door-to-door service, we can also arrange packing and palletising of cargo prior to shipment and handle dangerous, heavy or oversized items. Our team of experts are on-hand to advise you on all aspects of cargo forwarding to and from the UK.
For most destinations, container cargo by sea offers the best combination of cost and convenience. Larger shipments are loaded directly into a 20 or 40 foot cargo container at the collection address and the loaded container is then transported directly by road to the UK port for shipping. Consignments of household goods and personal effects can be packed and loaded into the container by our specialist packing teams. At destination, the container is customs cleared and delivered by road to the final delivery point for unloading. Shipments of household goods can be unloaded and unpacked by our specialist removals packing teams.
For smaller shipments we offer a part-load service known as LCL (less than container load) whereby your cargo is returned to our depot for consolidation and loading with other shipments in a container.

For urgent cargo our airfreight services are more suitable than sea freight. In some cases where the cargo is small or light and the destination is a long way inland from a sea port air rates can even prove to be cheaper than sea. We have contract rates with all major airlines and offer both next-day and same-day collection in the UK, meaning we can tailor a solution that will match your timescale and budget requirements.
From a single box to an entire household, we will cargo boxes from the UK to almost any destination throughout the world. We supply free extra strong boxes, bubble wrap and tape – with next day collection of your goods throughout the UK. Delivered door-to-door, or left at the port of arrival for you to collect – we have a cargo rate to meet your requirements.
