Port Health

We have extensive knowledge of the food industry, in particular the seafood and the meat trades.

Our highly-qualified team will help you with every aspect of your import, guiding you through the latest port health requirements, CVED completion, seal checks and physical examinations, where necessary.


Our experienced staff will ensure your shipment is correctly classified and declared, expediting its progress through the customs clearance system, enabling delivery at your chosen destination at the earliest opportunity, and therefore avoiding unnecessary demurrage charges.


We offer a next-day delivery service for full and part loads, both in the UK and throughout Europe. 

Using the latest high-technology systems, we are able to monitor the vehicle’s position, and keep you informed of its progress.


Your storage requirements may be short-term or longer, ambient, chilled or frozen.  Flexibility and location are key factors. 

Through our contacts, we will match your criteria with the best possible storage solution.
