At Absolute Freight Services Ltd, we cover the shipping needs of domestic, commercial and industrial clients across the UK. Our company prides itself on having a genuine passion for moving cargo from place to place. As a freight forwarder, we ship full or part container loads worldwide by road, air, sea and express courier as well as groupage and full trailers across Europe. We specialise in RORO (roll-on/roll-off) shipping and always welcome the challenge of transporting problematic and awkward cargo.
Operating out of Dorking in Surrey, we provide proven shipping solutions to clients across the south east of England and throughout the UK. From Crawley to Guildford, we work in close conjunction with an extensive range of clients, including consumers, traders, travellers, logistics companies and manufacturing businesses.
Shipping over long distances can, at times, face obstacles due to inconsistencies in road and port congestion and the weather, amongst other factors. However, our team shares 40 years of trade and industry experience, so we continue to achieve an outstanding rate of on-time collections at the first time of asking.
It always pays to entrust your shipping to an experienced freight forwarder. Not only do we have the foresight to check these factors with meticulous detail, we also strive to find ways to make your shipping as cost-effective as possible. To talk over your own shipping requirements in Dorking, Crawley, Guildford, the south east or any other UK location, please contact us.
Below, we have provided a brief introduction to our multiple shipping options.
Shipping by Road
Transporting goods by road is the most common way of moving cargo throughout Europe. Not only do we operate our own FORS-certified domestic road freight service, we also work with some of the largest international shipping companies to move a range of goods across Europe, from personal items to machinery and commercial goods.
We use our Surrey-based warehouse to temporarily hold goods before loading them into dedicated vehicles. Alternatively, we also have these goods collected for groupage shipping. As well as shipping domestically to locations like Crawley, Guildford, the wider south east area and across the UK, we also regularly transport cargo to France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy and even as far afield as Cyprus, Greece and Turkey.
Our personnel take care of all the required documentation. We also offer an online tracking service upon request.
Shipping by Air
Air freight remains the quickest method of shipping cargo overseas. In fact, some deliveries arrive door-to-door in as little as 24 hours, providing the ideal solution for perishable goods and other time-sensitive shipments. In addition to the more common bundled goods and large pallets, air freight also proves a popular choice for small packages and urgent documents.
We calculate fees for air freight by its volume weight, or dead weight. We provide regular runs to Heathrow and Gatwick airports, as well as other ports around the M25, via our quick, reliable haulage service. Our company ships a large amount of private and commercial air freight cargo each week. With this dedicated service, an array of well-known companies have chosen us as their trusted freight forwarders.
Shipping by Sea
Sea freight shipping solutions make the perfect choice for long-distance deliveries of machinery and large loads as well as less time-sensitive cargo. We receive goods at our warehouse in Surrey and hold them on a temporary basis. Our team then loads them on to flat racks or into dedicated containers. In addition, we can also deliver cargo to ports for groupage shipping.
Absolute Freight Services are the trusted onsite loaders and freight forwarders for a wide range of well-known UK-based businesses that ship products around the world, including America, Australia, Canada, China, India, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. If your cargo is sensitive or may become more complex to ship, our vastly experienced loading team travels to various locations for onsite container loading advice and supervision.
We also offer assistance to clients with letters of credit.
