Commercial Shipping by Freight
We are experts in commercial freight exporting. Whether your commercial shipment is manufactured goods, raw materials, or sales samples, we have a commercial freight transport solution to match your requirements.
We offer same-day and next-day collection throughout the UK, with daily departures for most major destinations.
You can choose to send high-priority exports by air freight. Road or sea freight shipping is mainly for larger or lower-priority consignments.
We have access to all major global air and shipping lines and can therefore offer you a choice of commercial shipping options to best suit your timeframe and budget.
We can supply and assist with the completion of all required export documentation and customs procedures, including certificates of origin, commercial shipping invoices and letters of credit.

Worldwide Exporting Services With Secure Containers
For most destinations, container shipping by sea offers the best combination of cost and convenience. Goods are loaded directly into a shipping container at the collection address and the loaded container is then transported directly by road to the UK port for export. Shipments of household goods and personal effects can be packed and loaded into the container by our specialist packing teams, if required.
At the destination, the shipping 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 removal and packing teams.

Exporting Services FAQs
What are the customs requirements for freight transport?
Customs requirements for exporting services vary depending on the importing country, modes of transport, and the type of cargo being transported. Importing countries typically have specific regulations and documentation requirements that must be adhered to, such as import permits, customs declarations, and tariffs. Modes of transport, including road, air, sea, and rail, also come with their own set of customs procedures and inspections. Haulage, which involves the movement of goods by road, requires compliance with weight restrictions, safety standards, and potentially the payment of road tolls or excise taxes. It’s crucial for businesses engaged in freight transport to stay informed about the specific customs requirements applicable to their operations in order to ensure smooth and compliant transport.
What are the transportation costs?
These costs can vary significantly depending on several factors, including the mode of transportation (such as road, air or sea), the distance travelled, the weight and volume of your cargo, and any additional services required. Please contact us for a tailored quote or more details about our exporting services.
Do you carry out exporting to the United States?

What is an export declaration and when do I need it?
An export declaration, sometimes called a customs declaration, is a document you have to fill out when you’re sending items out of a country. This declaration helps customs authorities make sure everyone’s following the rules for international trade, figure out the right taxes and fees, and keep track of how things move across borders.
What is the cost of exporting a car from the UK to Australia?
Exporting a car from the UK to Australia will vary in cost, depending on a number of factors. Here at Rapid Shipping, we regularly send vehicles, including cars and motorbikes, to Australia. The most cost-effective solution is roll-on roll-off car shipping, where your car is delivered directly to the loading port and driven onto the vessel. We also offer container car shipping and air freight cars.
