These days, ‘shipping’ is somewhat of a misnomer in that it encompasses movement of goods by road, sea and air.
Stephen Morris Shipping has been receiving and loading containers for 40 years. Full containers are loaded on site or at Greenford Park as best suits the project. Further ‘groupage’ containers are loaded every week at Greenford Park to offer a facility for smaller shipments that are then combined into one container to save on cost. This option – offered also to the removal ‘trade’ – serves the company’s most frequent destinations such as the USA, Malta, Dubai and Israel. The service is efficient, fast, cost-effective and ‘seamless’.
Our fleet of modern, specialised, vans and trucks serve the UK and Europe.
Within the UK, every postcode is served for collections and deliveries. Packing is available at the point of collection, where required, as is unpacking for imports and other deliveries. Each vehicle is satellite-tracked for security and maintenance of service levels. Trucks are despatched across Europe and Scandinavia on a weekly basis and the company offers a regular service as far south as Greece and as far north as Norway with trucks to Spain and Portugal as required. The service to Scandinavia has been running for nearly 35 years as has the service to France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Fine art, antiques and household effects travel safely and securely along these routes with knowledgeable crews ready and willing to assist in any way that they can.
Air freight has become much more affordable in recent years.
The Greenford Park warehouse also includes a FedEx ShipCentre offering FedEx’s worldwide services alongside our own packing and casing facilities. Much air freight can now be delivered to major cities in Europe, The USA and Canada (among other countries) overnight.
Where time is not so important, we offer FedEx Economy Air Freight which is especially suitable for large and heavy shipments.
