Humber firm signs up global partners

[ July 24, 2013   //   ]

Humberside-based Neill & Brown Global Logistics has signed four new agency agreements with Koring Freight Forwarders in the Netherlands; Eurogroup in Greece; Nellen & Quack, Istanbul, Turkey, and Nippon Transport Corporation, Osaka, Japan.

Colin Moody, managing director said: “Our customers manufacture in the UK and globally, selling to multiple end users, so we are continually arranging crosstrade shipments from outside the UK to worldwide destinations. With customers increasingly selling their products in new markets, it is always preferable to have a local agent as it enables a superior service and also give us a lot more confidence in promoting that particular area or country.

He explained that Neill & Brown frequently received offers from overseas partners looking for representation in the UK, but: “They must share the same values and strengths as us because we will only continue to expand our robust worldwide logistics network with the right partners on board,” he said.

Neill & Brown now has 19 international partners including agents in India and the Far East, and a dedicated office in Hong Kong.

The company is also an official partner of World Trade Centre Hull & Humber and has 120,000 sq ft of fully racked warehouse storage, as well as a fleet of about 40 trucks.
