As leading UK freight forwarders, our main transport and warehouse hub is centrally based in Birmingham, with additional UK bases to help serve our customers more effectively.

UK freight forwarders

International Forwarding (IFL) is one of the leading independent international freight forwarders in the UK. We are a pan-European road freight operation based at the heart of the UK motorway network. IFL also ships palletised freight worldwide using road, sea and air cargo transportation. In addition, we offer a range of storage and 3PL solutions through three large warehouse spaces in the West Midlands.

Our offices in the UK are listed below.

Birmingham office

We offer a local transport and warehousing hub for Midlands-based businesses and have successfully served the Birmingham economy for many years. Local businesses benefit from fast response times and our daily transportation services across Europe. We specialise in serving traditional West Midlands engineering, fabrication, manufacturing and technology companies, many of which require high-quality logistics services and scalable 3PL solutions.

Dover office – customs clearance agent

IFL is a Customs-accredited Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), offering a complete range of inbound UK customs clearance services from our Dover office. Port clearance services run 24/7, taking the pain away for freight agents and customers importing into the UK. Our direct CHIEF/CDS link to HMRC usually results in a speedy clearance while Customs VAT/duty can be advanced on your behalf via our deferment account.
