AMI Express – the UK express arm of airfreight and express wholesaler Air Menzies International – has extended its click2ship online express product to include road services to 27 European countries, making it the UK’s only wholesale express door-to-door road service.

Based on the services of UPS, and like the original express air services within click2ship, the new road services are quoted and booked online at Customers can also track their shipments and obtain PODs on-line. Ratesinclude Customs clearance and delivery transportation but exclude any duties and taxes. Agent customers have the option of a collection service from either their own or their shipper customer’s premises.

It currently caters for single piece shipments from 10-70 kilos but multiple-piece shipments will be added soon. Transit times range from 3-5 days. Maximum weights will also be increased later in 2012 and there are also plans to include a full pallet service.

AMI Express general manager Patrick Walsh said: “For freight agents who are already using van services for intra-European freight, this service enables them to provide their customers with faster all-inclusive quotations, and offers the ultimate in reliability and end-to-end control.”
