– Slate and Granite

When Road or Rail won’t do! One of the UK’s biggest Reclaim Specialist has received another regular sea freight shipment of Slate and Granite, again without delay, and at the best price possible! Yet, it wasn’t all straightforward this time!
The quarry is in the middle of southern China with no road or rail links …So what did we do?
From our office in Sidmouth, Devon, South West Shipping sent a barge from the port up the river to collect the cargo and deliver it on time to the port for sailing to the U.K. South West Shipping’s ocean freight forwarding services include shipment pickup, cargo transfer to dock, warehousing services, International cargo insurance, and any specialist requirements our customers need to provide a complete door-to-door service.

– Air Freight update

In this economy, remaining competitive often requires innovative thinking and cutting costs where ever possible! Whilst we can help reduce your shipping costs, we thought we’d tell you a little about one of our clients who was so fed up with rising fuel prices, they turned to us to for a solution, using air freight.
As a freight forwarding service, we see a lot! This means, whilst maintaining client confidentially, we can often advise clients a little more than our competitors can. So what can we do at South West Shipping, in our office in Sidmouth, Devon about rising fuel prices?
Well, nothing about the actual price!
However, we advised them to look into biofuel converter kits and we helped bring one over from the USA, via air freight to reduce his diesel costs. We even tracked down a handy guide on how to do it! Our client’s van is now happily trundling along on vegetable oil!
