Industries we service


We work with many charitable organisations throughout the UK by offering our expert knowledge for the shipment of charitable goods ensuring our registered charity customers get the best advice and competitive freight rates for the shipment of their goods.

We fully appreciate the importance of helping those who need it most, and we’re happy to help individuals and organizations with their shipping requirements. Some of our customers doing excellent work are:

  • Books for Bhutan
  • New life Children’s Centre 
  • Muslim Hands

We also like to help and support the charities we work with by actively promoting them on our social media outlets.

We can assist with containerised sea freight movements, air freight, road freight and even larger items being shipped/donated such as vehicles and machinery.

Unfortunately transporting goods by sea, air or road is very rarely free but when we work with charities we always ensure we offer the most competitive rates available on the market.

Laboratory Equipment & Relocation

For a number of years we have been working with various businesses, individual customers and auction houses that sell and purchase 1 off machines and equipment. With our in-house export packing facility, export packers around the world and extensive list of overseas agents, we can offer site visits to assess your requirements, custom built packing for safe transport and shipping to and from any county on the planet.

Relocating equipment within clean environments is a specialised service which Trade Freight International Ltd are highly qualified to provide. With experience, we believe that our understandings of the delicate workings of a laboratory reflects the high quality relocation service we provide.

We have gained a sophisticated knowledge of both the protective packing that is needed, and the delicate methodology for handling and transporting this type of equipment in a cost-effective way.

So whether you’re moving your laboratory or healthcare facility down the hall or around the world, we offer a complete range of laboratory relocation services for regulated and non-regulated sites. We provide all of the planning, moving, and post-move services to make your move as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Moving laboratories is a demanding operation at the best of times. Even modern laboratories can pose serious access problems, and some older premises can be extremely difficult to get around. Older lifts are often not big enough, and doorways and corridors are too cramped for moving big apparatus. Our laboratory move management team takes these problems in their stride by using a variety of stair climbers, lifting gear and tools, and have the expertise to solve all of these types of problems associated with specialist laboratory removals.

In instances where Hazardous Goods need transporting we have ADR trained members of staff on hand who can complete the request whilst complying with the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road.

Automotive Imports & Exports

We offer a comprehensive range of services, to satisfy your International Automotive Shipping needs, port to port or door to door. No matter what your requirement, Trade Freight International Ltd is there to assist.

As an international car shipping company we offer different methods of importing and exporting for our customers. These 3 different methods are;

Roll on and Roll off – RORO

Roll-on/roll-off (RORO) are ferries designed to carry wheeled goods such as Cars, Lorries, Trucks, and Trailers.

RORO ferries & ships have built-in Ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently “rolled on” and “rolled off” the vessel when in port.

The unloading of this type of ship for shipping vehicles overseas requires special docks. On arrival at the destination port, the cars are offloaded from the vessel by driving it out on ramps aligned with the cargo dock.
Please note that not all ports have offered this service so please enquire with one of our agents beforehand.

FCL container

For those customers who wish for their cars to be shipped in FCL containers, we have you covered. We can position the container at your site or at our warehouse. Having the container at your site will require you to load / lash and secure. When the container reaches the destination you will be called and only you or your customer will open the container. Understandably, this type of shipping becomes slightly more expensive because you are paying for the full container even though you may not be using the full space it offers.

LCL container

A less costly way of shipping a car overseas is to ship it in a high cube container. This system loads up to 4 cars into a single container. The shared container method means that the cost is split over the vehicles in the container. this can take a little longer as the vehicles has to be checked by the loading company but is a lot more cost effective.

Corona Update

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
