Importing freight to UK

So many questions, why do you need this information?

  • Area, zip and country information makes sure we are quoting from the right country, believe it or not there are places around the world with similar sounding names so having all three pieces of information is vital.

  • Terms of sale, this allows us to quote accurately, depending on the terms of sale, your liability and responsibility for certain charges differ. i.e EXW or EX Works you would be liable for everything, all charges, imagine the supplier leaving the goods outside the front door of their warehouse, you pay for everything from that point on where as say C&F your charges begin in England (although this is not the best method to use as will be the most expensive.

  • Commodity is very important as it allows us to make sure we handle the product in the correct matter, if you had foodstuffs we couldn't load them with chemicals and vice versa, this also helps us help you make the right routing decisions too

  • Weight and dimensions are very important, all freight prices are based either on the space you are taking up(dimensions) or the total weight of the goods, this has a dramatic effect of how the goods can be sent the most efficiently and cost effectively.

  • Urgency, how quick do you need them, no point in sending goods over by air just to sit on a shelf or put an urgent consignment on a slow boat from China, time is money help us to save you both!

  • Delivery point, this may not be an obvious one but again it has a massive bearing on where we send the freight into, no point in arriving in Felixstowe if you are based in Devon
