What we do: the short version

Arrange for your consignment to go from where it is, to where you want it to be. On time and at the right price.

What we do: the longer version

  • We handle all aspects of sea and air shipping, both import and export, Worldwide.
  • Consignments can be door-to-door (where we have 'hands on' from start to finish), FOB or ex-works.
  • We handle trucking at both origin and destination.
  • We clear customs for you on imports at any UK port, ensuring that duty and VAT is paid in a timely manner.
  • We have agents in most countries (several of whom have been with us since our inception), who work on our behalf to mitigate local problems and ensure trouble-free movement of goods.
  • We handle warehousing and storage, both long- and short-term, and export case packing.

But just as importantly, we ensure we set-up a close relationship with our clients:

  • For imports we endeavour to have direct links to the supplier, so they can directly email us relevant documents to save time.
  • For exports, time is also saved by arranging documents to be emailed directly to the consignee or their clearing agent.

You said it...

We have dealt with Active Cargo for about 7 or 8 years and continue to build a strong relationship because they are efficient, willing to help (even with shipping problems that don't directly involve them), friendly and always there at the end of the phone. Nothing seems too much trouble for them: it's as if we are their only customer and they are waiting for us to call.
To us service is crucial and Active Cargo delivers every time.
