Testimonials

We have been working with the Mannson team for around six years now. We have worked with many NVOCC’s in the market over the years, but none have managed to reach the consistency in service standards & competitiveness that Mannson have. Stuart’s team are a credit to him & a real pleasure to work with, they go the extra mile week in week out & really give us a service offering to our clients to be proud of.

Wayne Gibson – Managing Director

Testimonials

Over the years we have dealt with many consolidation services. Since we moved the majority of our groupage business to Mannson Freight they are by far the most responsive and flexible of those we have used. The customer service is second to none, they are very easy people to deal with, & the staff in the office are all very friendly and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. My only regret is that I didn’t move the business sooner.

What is LCL?

^

Less than Container Load”, when you can’t fill a container you can pay for space in a mixed container with us. We can take care of the unpacking and sorting of goods, customs clearance and delivery to your door.

Should I insure my goods when shipping?

^

Firstly check if your current good insurance covers goods in transit. If not then we would always recommend insuring goods with us. Our insurance is underwritten by CNA who are one of the worlds largest insurers and for a small premium your goods will be covered door to door. If you chose not to insure then you are taking a small risk, however the premiums for insurance are so small in relation to the value of the goods you are shipping that it is worth paying for insurance in most cases. Contact sales@mannson.com for an insurance price, we can even insure goods that are not being shipped with us.

Do I need to Customs clear goods I am buying from Europe?

^

Yes, all imports from Europe will now need to be cleared through Customs at the border. Mannson Freight can handle this for you. You may need to pay duty as only goods manufactured in Europe are treated as duty free under our new deal with Europe. If the goods were previously manufactured outside of the EU then duty may be payable. Somne goods are duty free and if that does not apply to the products that you are buying the applicable duty rate will be shown in the UK trade tariff https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff . VAT should also be applicable, however this can be off-set if your company are VAT registered. Contact sales@mannson.com for more information.
