    Hi Conrad,

    I try to avoid posting prices on the forum as rates constantly change. If you could drop me over an email with the shipment details and your company details I'm more than happy to get you a well priced quotation over.

    Hi Sumar,

    Unfortunately we don't have a service to Iraq. However if you do a quick google search "shipping to Iraq" it will come up with a few UK based forwarders that do.

    Best of luck,

    Darren.

    Does anyone else currently import by FCL or LCL that would like to look at cutting their costs? Please do get in touch.
    We also handle airfreight (shipments must be larger than standard 'courier') size, european and domestic road transportation, warehousing and fulfillment services (for high enough volumes).

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello Darren,

    I am looking at importing LCL from Shantou, China to the UK, for delivery in the north of England. I am still in discussion with manufactures but it will be 1 pallet of no more than 350KG. I have also been quoted FOB. Could you please send me any information regarding the import process as this will be my first large import by sea. Also the costs involved would be great.

    Regards

    hi Darren, do you also have storage in guangzhou or shenzen where i can ship my items to, and that products can be dropshipped from there (1 product for each customer usually)), for a decent price?

    Hi Daniel,

    We have an office/warehouse in Shenzhen. I can always ask them if this is something they would consider.

    Hi Darren

    I see that the blog started back in 2011 so I hope it is still running.

    I am interested of shipping goods between China and UK, and between China and Thailand. I have read about Woodland Group will be very happy to use your service. Would it be ok we discuss in detail and provide me your email?

    Best Regards

    Golf
