Having left the EU, we were at a loss as to how to navigate the rules & regulations involved in sending goods into the EU. We contacted Cargo Express, and they were diamonds! Joseph worked tirelessly on our behalf, and thanks to his dogged determination, ensured nothing was left to chance. The consignment arrived safely and on time! I’d not hesitate in using Cargo Express again!

We dealt with Cargo Express at the end of 2023 and found them very professional. The pick up from us here in Munich was quick and efficient with all relevant details dealt with beforehand. The staff in the UK were extremely helpful providing all required documentation for proof of export/import. For future transport requirements we will not hesitate to use or recommend further Cargo Express.
