Freight transport services

Moving valuable equipment such as sophisticated electronics nationally and globally in a safe and effective manner can be crucial to the success of many businesses. The attention to detail for such delicate equipment should be rigorous and the intrinsic vulnerability of every asset carefully assessed. The movement of goods, whether by road, rail, sea or air, will always require careful logistical planning and effective control of supply chain networks, but valuable and fragile items makes these capabilities all the more critical.

Freight transport services

Freight transport services will involve organising the storage and shipping of goods on behalf of other companies. It is the role of a freight transport company not only to ensure the security of goods in transit but also to take care of the paperwork and regulations involved with moving cargos such as valuable equipment internationally.

Here at Relay our freight transport services include:

  • Professional packing: Specially trained equipment handlers form part of our crews and they are well versed in the skills required for transporting valuable equipment, whether for businesses, healthcare, government agencies and many other sectors in which we operate. We are always aware that there can be no avoidable errors or delays during a freight transport assignment and will ensure that any packaging is carried out on time.
  • Air exports and imports: At Relay, we have professional teams of skilled technicians and relocation specialists, who have extensive experience in transporting a variety of high value consignments. They are well resourced with advanced tracking and communications systems, which allows us and our customers to know where any given cargo is at all times.
  • Sea freight: Our specialist transportation team of technicians regularly carries out the safe and secure shipping of customer assets by sea. We will install the equipment at exactly the point where it is required for operation and will carry out the necessary tests to ascertain that it is operating at optimum performance levels so that the end user’s working activities are not disrupted.
  • Road transport: Our road transport service is planned down to the last detail, including the use of effective project and journey management. Ensuring that the best routes are mapped out well in advance of a journey enables our crews to deliver on schedule and frequently even ahead of time.
  • Customs clearance: We are experienced enough to know that even the smallest of errors in paperwork can be costly and time consuming. This is why we will deal vigilantly with all aspects of global customs clearance, consular and documentation management. In association with our freight forwarding partners Tech Cargo, we have built up a worldwide network of trusted agents and associates who have the local knowledge to deal with all regulatory issues.
  • Local installation: Having an experienced overseas representation on the ground, with agents that are familiar with local regulations and also are continually updated on any problems that might occur on route, enables us to be able to respond quickly and effectively to any sudden changes in transportation and delivery plans.
