Importing more than £500bn in goods each year, the UK economy relies heavily on the timely flow of goods directly to customers and businesses alike.
Having initially setup the business to handle containerised imports and now handling all types of cargo, AFS Global have all the tools and relationships you will need, making importing into the UK simple and seamless.
Regardless of where your products originate from, we either have our own offices or a network of the best freight agents available in that region. Liaising in local languages with your supplier, we’re able to ensure we understand everything about your cargo before it begins its journey.
Our relationships with shipping lines in each of the global alliances mean we’re able to offer a range of vessels, loops and rates to suit each customer’s needs. With access to major airlines and clearance facilities at all UK airports, we can provide great solutions for your urgent air freight. And if your shipments start their journey in Europe, we can send trailers and vehicles of all shapes and sizes to safely bring your goods into the UK.
