I have great pleasure in recommending RW Freight. They were of tremendous help in arranging and processing our first container import from Hong Kong. Their administration systems and advice were invaluable and made what seemed a clerical nightmare a very easy and informative experience. They arranged a door-to-door service, which could not be faulted in any way. We are now looking at expanding our product imports and would not hesitate to use RW Freight again. It is very rare to get a complete service these days but this company does it well and should be proud of the service they deliver. Many thanks.
