Martintrux can call upon trusted contacts around the world for favourable rates only obtainable locally, and present full comparisons of transit times and Shipping Line offerings of Contract or Spot Rates available from the UK for Ocean Freight, or Air Carrier and IATA rates for Air. Our network partners provide support to our clients in many other ways; advising local compliance requirements and regulations, able to assist with any problems in unfamiliar territory, or supply complete transport solutions via Air or Sea.
Our independent position and good standing allows Martintrux to choose and deploy optimum transport services to meet the required balance of budget over speed, or least cost routing, and we are happy to advise the implications of different buying terms – such as CIF or FOB, etc. We hold necessary accounts with all carriers and operators at the UK Ports and Airports, to immediately accept any costs on behalf of our clients and allow release of freight at the earliest opportunity.
As leading Customs Clearance Managers, away from Dover, we regularly handle Air and Ocean Freight shipments to and from all over the world.
Enjoying the momentum of our drive to obtain accurate and speedy release of goods through Customs, Traders often commented they felt they had a lack of control over the arrival, release, or shipment of their consignments, which affected their planning.
In 1995, we set up our own Freight Forwarding department to address the issues. Guided by the needs and questions of our clients, Martintrux identified rates and freight services available to and from any point, through all modes of transport, as part of our offering for supply chain solutions. Further enhanced with our own offices at both Heathrow and Manchester Airports, which also support ocean freight shipments, we can now provide Full Load, Part Load, LCL (less than a container load) Ocean Container services, and Airfreight routing by package or ULDs (Unit Load Devices - air industry containers), and specialise in shipping Hanging Garments with pre determined loading patterns.
