WHO ARE BANKS & LLOYD?

Freight forwarding excites us.

Plain and simple, not a matter of opinion but a matter of fact.


We are passionate about making sure that any business has the means to keep its supply chain in motion, and we know we are the best equipped to see our vision through. Being the market leading freight forwarder that we are and having provided world class customer service for over 40 years, it’s understandable why we are the number 1 choice when it comes to transportation of ceramic tiles.
Based in Wilmslow, our UK office has over 40 dedicated and diligent members of staff looking to take any headache that comes from supply chain management.

A BESPOKE SERVICE THAT IS TAILORED TO YOUR EXACT NEEDS

Regardless of the scale of the job at hand, we have the knowledge and understanding to make sure that all the right choices are made.

  • Maybe you have one or 2 pallets, maybe a few more, but not enough to fill a full container? Then our Groupage team will be at hand.
  • Maybe you need a full container, or more? Not a problem! We will advise what type of container you need to utilise and get a service going to match.
  • What type of transport? Sea, Air, Road or Rail? Whatever fits the bill, whatever timeframe or budget you’re working with we will find an option that matches those exacting needs.
  • What kind or agreement with the buyer or seller? EXW, FOB, DDP? Maybe something in between? Perhaps these Incoterms are a confusing cacophony of jargon? Need not worry, it’s our profession and we can advise accordingly.
  • Are you importing into the UK? Or exporting out? You need a reliable freight forwarder who manages any customs clearance in house? Or maybe its help with the export procedures from a country outside of the UK. Maybe the goods in question are not even going to hit the UK shores? You are instead dealing with cross trades. 

With a global network of trusted partners, whatever the task, we are well equipped.

EUROPEAN EXPERTISE

Our years of experience and expertise means we can help move goods from any location on the planet to any desired destination you require, but when it comes to Europe and tiles, we are truly in our element.

Our own office in Valencia, our “Spanish Speciality”, and trusted partners in areas such as Italy, Portugal and Poland to name only a few, plus our familiarity with Europe as a whole gives us a particular edge.
