Both in the UK and overseas, warehousing and distribution is an important part of the total freight forwarding capability. Blacksmith Freight operates combined office and warehouse facilities. In the UK, Blacksmith Freight operates its own warehouse at both Manchester and London Heathrow, whilst our overseas partners operate either their own warehouse or work in close partnership with established third-party providers.
Our new warehouse facility at Manchester Airport boasts a much larger fully racked warehouse that will offer our clients easy inspection of their cargo before delivery, storage both long and short periods, loading and unloading of sea freight containers and a full pick and pack service.
Our packing Department can also organise either on site or at our premises, consignments that for whatever reason require specialist packing for the mode of transport that is required.
Services vary from providing just a basic securing of your consignment, to full blown hazardous cargo packing with documentation to IATA/ICAO specification.
We also offer a Picking and Packing service.
