Testimonials

You do a fantastic job for me! I didn't realise why you chase me for my clients contact names & telephone numbers. I now understand from your import department that it is because you contact my clients to advise them of the impending delivery and to find out their opening times and to ensure that they have equipment onsite to offload. This is superb, it saves me a great deal of work and just as important is the fact that my clients receive their cargo when they are able to take delivery and hire in equipment to offload if necessary. This saves me wasted journey charges for failed deliveries. A lot of forwarders do not do this, they just get an import job & deliver it without contacting the end receiver.

Road transport dominates UK freight

The latest statistics issued by the Department for Transport show that 68% of freight in the UK is moved by truck;the average journey made by by truck is 54 miles.  This compares with only 8% of goods moved by rail freight and 20% by water.  Freight carried by water tends to be heavier and less urgent, and the average journey is 250 miles. According to the CBI, the road infrastructure is so poor that it could hold back business when the economy begins to recover.
