About Blacksmith Freight Services

Blacksmith Freight Services is a privately owned international freight forwarder, with offices based in Manchester and London. We set out on our journey 25 years ago to help businesses optimise their operations through flexible, reliable and high-quality logistics and transportation. We’ve not stood still since. In 2011, we opened a Heathrow Airport office which has since moved to larger premises to accommodate further growth, and we are now the largest international freight forwarder at Manchester Airport World Freight Terminal, serving a wide range of clients.

That’s why we remain independent; small enough to know each of our customers by name, but large enough to be able to meet their ever-increasing supply chain demands.
