Testimonials

I was new to importing products from suppliers in China, but RW Freight Services gave me the support and advice I needed to get it off the ground. I now have used RW Freight three times for my imports from Ningbo and they provide a brilliant service.

Care for Bears

 

Shipping custom-made bear enclosures to Russia was a first for wildlife charity ‘Care for the Wild’, so they searched the Internet for help.

Care for the Wild International (CWI) has been involved in supporting the Wildlife Rescue Centre at Khabarovsk in the Far East of Russia for about five years; the Centre is home to young bears which are found orphaned when their mothers have been killed by poachers and hunters.
CWI supports and funds lots of different wildlife welfare projects throughout the world, but this was the first time they had needed to ship such a huge item such a long distance. 

An Internet search showed that R W Freight offers services to Russia, so CWI contacted them and explained their needs.  R W Freight Operations Director Peter Willis explored the different possibilities for transporting 58 cubic metres of power fencing from Holland to the depths of Russia, and came up with the idea of a road/rail combination, utilising the services of the famous Trans-Siberian railway.

In the more remote areas of Russia, the road infrastructure is fragmented, and the rail system more reliable, especially for large items.  So RW arranged for the fencing to travel by road trailer to and then on to Khabarovsk by rail. 

The fencing reached its destination safely and will soon be erected to help protect the orphan brown and black bears whose mothers have been stolen by poachers, mainly for use in the production of Asian traditional medicines.  Adult bears are ‘milked’ for their bile, which has been a major constituent for these medicines for thousands of years.  The poachers take the mothers but leave the immature bears behind.  The orphans are kept in forested, fenced enclosures, which enables them to develop the skills which will allow them to be released into the wild.

CWI was very pleased with the service it received from R W Freight; they had also had discussions with   a Russian forwarding company, which suggested shipping to Vladivostock and on-forwarding by road.  Not only was this a less efficient route, but CWI could not get the answers they needed and “had to keep chasing.”
