Cost-effective freight forwarding
Along with its track-record in haulage and distribution, John Hackling Transport Ltd has the depth and breadth of service to help with the complex freight forwarding process that must be properly managed to ensure safe, efficient and cost-effective movement of goods in the UK, Europe or further afield. In particular, we specialise in the acceptance of freight and reliable onward dispatch of deliveries received from European haulage companies.
UK and international freight forwarding
As members of the Palletline and Hazchem networks, we specialise in reliable palletised consignment handling, including hazardous ADR deliveries and abnormal pallet loads that other hauliers won’t handle. While we specialise in road freight transportation, we also handle container shipping from UK ports. With a modern hub in the heart of southern England, we’re ideally positioned to handle incoming deliveries by European hauliers; we can even simplify freight import and onward distribution (including arranging collection of containers from anywhere in the world).
