3 Ways Exporters Can Improve Their International Freight Movements

International Freight Movements

Cullen European Freight has been helping international exporters with their international freight movements and specific requirements all across Europe for well over 20 years. Here are a few things we’ve learned in that time:

1. A Professional Attitude is Critical to Freight Forwarding Excellence

We believe that if exporters work in close co-operation with a trustworthy freight forwarder or broker they have much better chances of managing their transport effectively in new markets.
Cullen Freight believes in friendly service, a professional attitude and competitiveness to save money and reduce costs for our export clients. We have vast experience in groupage and part loads, refrigerated transport and many other specific forms of logistics tailored to our clients needs. But what matters most is attitude and professionalism.

2. Helping customers with stock/inventory planning and other additional freight related considerations

Many of our clients realise that it is a costly exercise keeping valuable stock in multiple warehouses or places. Cullen can advise you on your premises and how to shift your pallets across Europe in the most timely and cost-effective way. International freight movement is all about stock control, taking accurate inventories and using the best and most cost-effective international transport services in the fastest and safest manner possible. We advise exporters to look for freight forwarders who take an added interest in their business and who can contribute to additional tasks, not only the transport in a vehicle from point A to point B.

3. International Freight Forwarding Services Tailored to Each Individual Client

Cullen International Freight provides freight movements for many different types of exporter and client. We believe that one of the keys to being a professional and excellent freight forwarder is to be extremely flexible with customers.

Some clients might not be aware of part load or groupage services to say Spain and we provide such services. Other clients might require overnight pallet services to France, which we do. A UK client may require full load services to France or Portugal, which we can also provide.

This kind of personal and professional service and close understanding of the needs of our clients business is essential. We build close relationships with our clients over time.
