Anglia moves into forwarding

[ December 3, 2012   //   ]

Suffolk logistics company Anglia Freight has set up a freight forwarding division. Anglia, which already moves a diverse range of cargoes from raw materials to manufactured goods, says it can now offer a range of air and sea freight options, customs consultancy, import tax reduction initiatives, purchase order management and cargo insurance brokerage. Managing director Geoff Moulton says that early responses from existing and potential customers are “ very encouraging” and he is anticipating a £2 million increase in turnover by the end of 2013, adding:”It’s not a new field for us – we have handled requests from existing customers for some years – but the new division means we can manage all aspects of the work in-house, using multiple service options to provide tailored and highly cost effective solutions.”

East Anglian businesses already using the service include local brewer St Peter’s Brewery Company which trades in twenty three countries, for whom Anglia Freight’s freight forwarding division is now bringing in full trailer loads from Spain.
