Freight quote needed

Question posted by Gemma Price, on behalf of @GemmaPriceUK in W13

Hi

I am currently trying to overcome a freight forwarding issue for one of my consignments. I currently have a team of forwarders working on it but if any new forwarders can offer me a solution I would be interested:

Collection :
Michigan, USA
Tuesday 3 September 2013
(Unable to load containers sooner due to labour day holiday)

Delivery :
Middlesex, UK
- OR -
Any UK port
No later than Thursday 19 September 2013

Goods :
2 x 40ft HC Containers
- OR -
3 x 40ft Containers

Please leave quotes below.

I am aware this will be very tight however the goods are being re-exported on Friday 20 September so if i cannot find a seafreight option i will just have the goods packed and airfreight them across.

I do not need assistance with other exports at this time, however if a forwarder was to impress me with this consignment it may lead to future work.

Kind regards
Gemma

Gemma, if you could confirm the zip code for the collection I can check with our agent there to see if we can get the equipment and load 3/9/13 and then supply the cost.
Thanks.

Hi

I am pleased to report that as a direct result of my Open to Export question I have interacted with James Goehlert of Mercator Cargo Systems and have booked 2 x 40ft HC containers being collected on 3 September arriving Liverpool port on 15 September at a cost of USD 3750 per container.

If I had not posted my question on Open to Export I would not have booked the seafreight in time and would have had to book airfreight at £17k!!!

Thank you to all the forwarders who quoted.

Kind regards

Gemma
