Established in 1982, St Helens based Brendon International Ltd. has become one of the country’s leaders in their field of export packing and freight forwarding. Handling all modes of export and import freight from their purpose-built packing facility in St Helens, Brendon International Ltd.’s main focus is ensuring their clients receive a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for seamless freight solutions.

Hazel James, owner of Brendon International Ltd. explained, “As a company we offer several services, but for many customers we are their entire shipping department; collecting their cargo (mostly machinery and industrial products), export packing in line with the required specification, assisting with their commercial and shipping paperwork and subsequent on-forwarding to its final destination.”

With no two days, or consignments the same, the dedicated team of over 30 staff are well equipped to deal with the requirements of shipping across the world for cargo and projects of any size, shape or configuration.

Hazel continued:

“The effect of Brexit is a concern for many customers, but whatever happens our staff and business are ready for it. With the majority of our freight, already leaving the UK for non-EU countries, should new rules and requirements come into place because of Brexit, as a company, we can easily adhere and assist our customers to these documents and requirements.

“Come what may, we have plans in place so our customers can continue exporting and importing, complying with possible new requirements. Our customers know that we’re here to help them.”

Offering import and export solutions from northern Italy, with trailers departing on a Tuesday and Friday, Brendon International Ltd can offer customers the solution of their cargo leaving the Milan warehouse on a Friday night, for delivery to their warehouse for Monday morning. With Brexit in mind, they have already advised these Italian service customers of the possible new paperwork and customs changes that could be required.

While based in St Helens, the worldwide approach that Brendon International Ltd have is also reflected in their ability to manage packing projects throughout the world.

Hazel explained: “Our team are able to export pack across the whole of the UK and anywhere in the world. This ensures that we can not only assist with the most delicate and fragile equipment, but we can also export pack, much larger out of gauge cargo, such as presses and machinery lines, on site, reducing transport costs and other potential movement risks until packed suitably for transport.”

While ensuring all the packing and freight requirements are met, Brendon International Ltd. are dedicated to ensuring the highest customer service, no matter the consignment size or destination.

Rachael Plumb, Specialist Projects Manager at Brendon International Ltd, added: “We’re a one-stop-shop for all matters of freight and as such can deliver cargo anywhere in the world seamlessly. Our customers know we have the knowledge and relationships to work with UK Customs and agents at destination, helping to limit and minimize any unforeseen pitfalls or delays they could encounter.

“We have staff trained in dealing with hazardous cargo, on hand who can assist customers with any goods needing specialist packing documentation and have a Compliance Team, to deal Letters of Credit and Customs paperwork, who are supported by the Chamber.”
