S&C Talk Freight Forwarding and Brexit

Sheldon Clayton Logistics have always had an active role in the sea and air freight industry, and has been a key service of ours over the last 40 years of trading. But with the recent decision to leave the European Union and the fast approaching reality of this, we are looking at what we can do to develop our freight forwarding services and make sure to continually provide our customers with a reliable and cost effective service that they are accustomed to receive when booking their freight with us.

We are fortunate to have a team of experts that have worked within the freight forwarding industry for over 30 years, and are working to keep our fingers on the pulse to be proactive with any future customs procedures that will come into play ‘we attend many meetings on Brexit and it is really about keeping up to date on all new import and export developments’ said John Croft, Director at Sheldon Clayton Logistics.

‘So far the past few weeks we have found business on the freight forwarding ide very buoyant, due to the weak pound’ Croft continues. ‘We are now finding freight costs increasing on a monthly basis. We work with agents across Europe and although we are still very busy, our freight costs are acclimatising to the euro exchange situation’.

The company has also taken recent opportunities and acquired a sea route company based in Aberdeen. Sheldon Clayton Logistics see this as a positive investment which will change and enhance dealings within the freight forwarding and shipping fraternity. We are currently one of the top 50 growth companies within the midlands, and will continue to strive for more growth including within our freight forwarding department.
