Our company ethos is to have fun, to achieve ever
higher standards and make a difference.

OUR HISTORY

It all began in 1988 in a portacabin at the bottom of an airport runway. Just 2 of us and yes the portacabin really did have pink curtains with clouds on! You will see some of these throughout this website. We specialised in providing Wholesale Airfreight Brokerage services to our clients.

Armed only with a GBP 600 Amstrad computer (20 meg, which we never actually filled) and a bit of home programming together with 3 dot matrix printers and a zest for life and true enjoyment of helping other, we thought we were the bee’s knees…

Looking back it really was exciting particularly when a plane took off and provided sound effects when you were on the phone!

Going from strength to strength and growing fast (thanks to fantastic client support) we moved the following year (1989) in to purpose built offices actually on the airport – now employing some 8 people but we still had the Amstrad (and still hadn’t filled it!)

It always was the intention of the two founding members of the Company that one Director could become the sole owner and this happened in 2009. We then went our separate ways whilst remaining great friends and colleagues.

No matter what the query is they are always more than happy to help, whether it’s sending a parcel just a few miles away, or to the other side of the world. I don’t know what we would do without them!
