global logistics

Our Global Freight division is dedicated to providing the most time-efficient and cost-effective logistics solutions to our customers’ international transport requirements, with vast experience in air freight, sea freight and international road transport.

Our independent status enables us to source the very best rates from across the whole of the market, however we have established relationships with many of the leading carriers, resulting in preferential rates that we pass on to our customers.

AEO accredited

Our Global Freight division has expertise in both import and export and we hold Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) accreditation.

This internationally recognised mark of quality demonstrates that the holder’s role within the supply chain is secure and that its customs controls and procedures are both compliant and efficient. Together with our direct links into CHIEF – HMRC’s electronic customs submission system – customers benefit in a number ways, from priority customs clearance and reduced risk of intervention or container examination, to reduced duty rates on products from countries outside the EU post-Brexit.
