Bonded Warehousing Specialists UK

Welcome to Across the Ocean Shipping UK

Our facility is specialised for you. We can keep your goods in storage for up to 90 days. This means that your goods will spend less time on the docks so that you will not incur any expensive storage charges. As we are based in the Midlands we are more local and not as far away as what the docks are which means that your goods will not have to travel as far and will therefore be turned around and delivered a lot quicker so that as soon as your goods have been cleared your goods can get straight on their way out for delivery. All of your deliveries will be completed on in house transport so we will have eyes on your goods at all times this can reassure you that your goods are always going to be safe.

Container Loading and Unloading

Our warehouse has three doc levellers and we can load or unload undercover and away from the “Great British weather”. Each container load has its own unique requirements for loading. Some are straightforward and some need that little bit extra thought and consideration. Either way we can handle it all: from cartons, pallets, bundles, cases and IBCS; all can be handled through our depot. Over the past few years we have been able to grow our portfolio of loading and securing techniques and this has allowed our customers to give that little bit extra when it comes to looking after their clients cargo. Based on loading under the guidelines of the CTU code of practice has enhanced our abilities to offer a more comprehensive service level.

Groupage Consolidation

We consolidate export cargo for worldwide destinations for many national and international freight forwarders. We are a totally independent operator and act as a Midlands receiving facility on their behalf.

Long and Short Term Storage

We are able to offer pallet storage for what ever needs you may have. Be it overnight, daily, weekly or monthly, please contact us to discuss and solve your storage requirements. Bigger than a pallet? Contact us now to see what solutions we have available to you!

Unloading Refused Loads and Re-Devliery

Down time of trucks, trailers and containers cost money! The inconvenience also causes a domino effect causing delays to clients and collections/deliveries. If goods are refused or badly loaded, we can offer a solution to devann your goods, re-pack (if required) and re-deliver. No load is a problem; it’s a challenge we accept 100%.
