Road freight to and from France and Italy took a hard hit from lockdown restrictions, although essential supplies were still getting through. In recent weeks, we have started to see a gradual increase in imports from Italy and France as lockdown has lifted. We expect European shipping to continue to increase, dependant on restrictions being lifted, and we are ready and able to assist with your freight needs. Please do get in contact for our latest schedules, however, as these are still prone to disruption.

Our French transport partner is a large global operator offering excellent coverage and service rates throughout the country, including hubs in Paris and Lyon.
