We provide international freight forwarding services to a large group of UK general haulage, warehousing, parcel and pallet distribution companies. The company started with the idea of offering customers with a competitive, reliable door to door service for parcels, pallets & groupage consignments with fast transit times.
In March 1992 the Company was purchased by its management and is totally independent. In September 2001 the Birmingham head office moved to its existing premises which comprises of a 2 acre site wholly owned by the company.
In June 2003 the Company became a member of the Palletways overnight UK distribution network.
The company is profitable and the current sales turnover is approximately £8 million and 200,000 consignments per annum are handled. We have recently set up a London depot, situated in Ashford, Middlesex to provide our customers with an even better service, which allows us to service the southern counties very effectively.
IFL continues to grow and expand its service offering. We continue to push forward and explore new service markets which will help us to consolidate our position as one of the UK’s most dependable freight forwarders.
