Testimonials

Our FCL & LCL deepsea imports from China, Ningbo, Pakistan & Taiwan are handled very well. The most important thing to us as a company is information and we can say that we are kept very well informed and we appreciate the guidance that has been given to us in relation to the documentation needed for these shipments ie. bills of lading. In addition to this we feel the combination of staff at R W Freight and their knowledge is good!

It was the first time I used RW Freight Services when they carried out my freight export to Finland and I am very happy with the service. Their booking process was simple and stress free, I received a confirmation of the booking and the collection was made the next day. I am looking forward to working with RW Freight Services on a much more regular occurrence in 2012.

Shipping safety threatened by overloading

There seems to be a growing problem with freight containers imported into the UK; the Health and Safety Executive is getting an increasing number of enquiries asking for advice.  Over the past two years, 7,760 containers stopped in roadside checks were found to be overweight, and one company had to call the HSE when a container overturned while being unloaded.  Shippers are obliged by law to declare the correct weight to shipping lines, and there is no incentive to under-declare as shipping freight rates are based on the size of the container, not the weight.  There have been accidents due to over-loaded containers bursting open, and there is to be an international effort to revise the guidelines on loading.
