DG Experts

On the basis your business deals with dangerous goods including hazardous materials and chemicals and you’re looking for a top class freight forwarder you can rely on for specialist expertise and personal attention, then look no further. The movement of hazardous goods continues to be a real niche market for us, as our name and reputation becomes more synonymous with this commodity throughout the industry. A notable recent shipment handled by our Exeter office was a challenge! The logistics involved air-freighting a 2500kg flask on a cradle, which was also extremely time sensitive radioactive cargo to Helsinki, for re-working and the importation back to Sellafield – all of which proved to be water off a ducks back for our experienced team of DG experts.
