Air Freight - Import

At The Efficient Freight Company, we appreciate there is far more to providing an effective import air freight forwarding service than simply loading and unloading cargo from an aircraft. 

In this age of unprecedented globalisation, the demand for fully integrated air freight services has never been greater – especially when it involves the movement of time sensitive equipment.

That’s why our priority is coordinating comprehensive, global air freight solutions, tailored to the needs of your business – so that you can trade with confidence anywhere in the world.

With decades of industry experience behind us, we are certainly large enough to deliver, but still small enough to care – and we’re proud to offer to clients throughout the UK an import service based on common sense and sound practical advice.

No matter the make-up of your air freight consignment - heavy machinery, vehicles, pallets, boxes, large packages, containers or sensitive documents, you can rely on The Efficient Freight Company to take care of all your requirements – on budget and with all necessary due care and attention.  

Managing the whole process for you

We will collect the goods from any overseas location. 

We keep abreast of the latest worldwide air cargo timetables, advising on the most effective transit of freight from airport to airport should it be required and handling any further interconnecting transportation requirements – via road or sea – that may be necessary. 

This seamless service is ably supported by our extensive and highly professional agent network around the world, strategically located to cover all major airports and sea ports, and enabling us to manage the import and export of cargo on a global basis.

As a result, we don’t simply deal with freight originating from overseas . We are equally competent at transporting goods between third party countries on your behalf.

The Efficient Freight Company holds full marine open cover, applicable to land, sea and air shipments which means we can immediately issue the necessary insurance. Whilst we maintain full legal liability cover in accordance with our trading conditions, we would also advise that you have in place full cargo insurance, in the unlikely event of any loss or damage that may occur during transit.

Important ancillary services

As part of our superior and bespoke level of service and in-depth industry knowledge, we can offer a comprehensive range of important ancillary services, including:

  • managing all UK import regulations and customs clearance
  • handling all air freight documentation for different countries
  • letters of credit
  • compliance assistance
  • freight packaging restrictions for different aircraft 

From the start of the journey to its conclusion - we’ll manage the entire process for you.
