A BESPOKE SERVICE THAT IS TAILORED TO YOUR EXACT NEEDS

Wouldn’t you love your Freight Forwarder to be able to professionally manage “door to door” shipments from any location in the world to any desired destination hassle free? We weren’t established as Banks & Lloyd Shipping Ltd for nothing. Whether it be Deep Sea and European Short Sea Imports, Exports and Cross Trades, when it comes to cargo crossing the seas, you name it, we do it.

LCL or FCL Shipment? 20ft, 40ft, 45ft, open top and high cube containers? Side Loaders, Flat Racks, Platforms and Pallet wide equipment?

Even if all of the above did not make a lick of sense, it doesn’t matter, our wealth of knowledge and ability to support whatever your shipment needs happen to be is what sets us apart. Regardless of what combination of requirements are needed, our experienced Operations Department can deal with your supply chain management, project management, break-bulk cargoes and make sure you’re kept up to date with reporting of your cargo’s progress.

So your cargo has sailed the seas, or perhaps its flown the skies, but it will also be hitting the road. Urgency becomes the name of the game with road shipments, something that we fully recognise, and this understanding is why it becomes our paramount priority to make sure you are kept fully in the loop and up to date throughout your cargo’s entire journey. The journey needs a level of consistency, a consistency that we will provide. Regardless of whether it’s just 1 pallet or something much larger and ready to move, fret not, we have you covered.

Proud of our services being well established on the European groupage market, you’ll find our handling of groupage and full trailer loads on the road to be highly reliable and cost effective. Having extensively expanded our Spanish Groupage service over the years our coverage allows us to offer professional, efficient and agile services from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Poland and other European countries. All you need to do is put a pin on the country of origin, another at its destination, give Banks & Lloyd a call and with our expert knowledge we will find the route to ensure your cargo arrives promptly, safely and without delay.

You have cargo that needs to travel a vast distance and you need it to be at it’s destination yesterday? It sounds like you need to take advantage of air-freight. Covering all global markets, and no matter whether it be an import, export or cross trade, our handling of both daily and fixed schedule flights means that your cargo will be promptly on its way.

We make sure its managed from wherever its needs to be collected all the way to its ultimate delivery point, providing you with a safe, secure and seamless “door to door” service. All export and import documentation and all the customs clearance procedures will be taken care of, so you can just sit back and relax.

We want to make sure that your cargo receives that seamless door to door service in every scenario you can think of. That’s why, when it comes to putting that cargo on a train, we utilise and have access to rail networks that place us in a strong position from which we can easily coordinate imports, exports and other intra-European transport.

Wherever possible we will utilise the advantages and options the Channel Tunnel provides to combine speed and reliability, allowing us to provide cost effective multimodal solutions for 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft containers as well as swapbody trailers.
Combining our wide-ranging portfolio of services, through our well-established agency network, taking care of all documents and customs requirements we can provide that much desired door to door service we pride ourselves on.

At Banks & Lloyd we are proud to be an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). What does that mean? In a nutshell we hold certified badges at all major ports in the UK, recognised internationally as a mark of quality that our position in the international supply chain is a secure one. It’s confidence in Banks & Lloyd that our customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. The benefit for you is that there is one less piece in the puzzle you need to worry about and we keep everything moving forward at a fast pace. Its one more reason to jump on board with Banks & Lloyd.

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.
