Global Container Services Limited was founded in 1983, and provides Customs clearance and freight forwarding services to a wide range of customers.

We pride ourselves in being flexible in our business approach, and offer high quality services to the shipping industry.

We offer sea freight services for both FCL and LCL movements, and through our global agency network can cover any origin/destination, including cross trades. Sea & air freight are specifically services that we are proud of, connecting our customers to a world of opportunity.

Our European division operates within a comprehensive haulage network, offering customers daily import and export services for both full and part trailer loads.

Customs clearance facilities continue to be a key area of our business, and for arrivals into the UK, we operate direct clearance facilities at all main sea ports, these include Felixstowe, Southampton, London Gateway, Tilbury, Liverpool, Teesport and Grangemouth.

Our clearance facility extends to airfreight arrivals too, and we cover London Heathrow, London Gatwick, East Midlands, Leeds & Bradford and Manchester airports.

We are members of the British International Freight Association (BIFA), Road Haulage Association (RHA), and British Chamber of Commerce.

In 2012, we gained the accreditation of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) at the highest level (Customs & Security). This accreditation is only offered to companies who can demonstrate their full compliance to HMRC requirements and follows stringent auditing of the procedures of the company.
