Customs & Duties: We handle customs clearance, airline handling, airport transfer fees, storage, import duty/VAT, excise duty, deferments and petties as well as managing bonded warehousing and road transport to destinations.
Cross Trading: Shipments do not have to be destined for the UK, we can arrange shipping to any destination you require handling all import formalities for the shipment’s destination.

As independent agents we can specify the most suitable facilities for your requirements be they temperature, humidity or other environmental controls, container handling facilities and security.
