“As a global business, we chose to partner with an independent 3PL company who could meet our international import requirements and always be on hand whenever we need them.
We greatly value Blacksmith Freight’s personal customer service and fast turnaround which enables us to maintain a first-class delivery service to our end customers.”
“We approached Blacksmith Freight on the back of a strong recommendation, and we haven’t been disappointed. They handle all our customs clearance on shipments and deliver directly to our factory.
Their flexible and personal approach gives us peace of mind that all our shipping and customs is in their capable hands.”
“Blacksmith Freight have been our reliable and trusted logistics partner ever since they opened their doors. They are always available 24/7 to support our back-office requirements and time critical European and domestics deliveries. If we have requirement that falls outside of scope, they always come up with a scalable distribution solution.
They not only deliver everything they promise, they’re continuously looking to improve service and efficiency to meet the demands of our customers.”
“Blacksmith Freight have been handling our logistics for over 15 years. The relationship has since grown to include ongoing logistics for Greene King with Blacksmith Freight becoming a trusted and collaborative logistics partner.
Their location on Manchester Airport’s Freight Terminal is a huge advantage for us; whenever we need something urgent, they’re right on the doorstep and ready to react quickly. They go above and beyond to ensure our products are prioritised. We don’t class them as a logistics supplier, but as a strategic collaborator of our business.”
