Gloucester Freight Latest News

I read recently about an unfortunate driver who was seriously injured when a full pallet landed on him as his truck was being unloaded.

Newport based Freight Movement was fined a total of £84,000 as a result of the incident as the driver, their employee, was hurt when a pallet loaded with 920kg of cardboard packaging toppled onto him from a forklift. He suffered multiple fractures and internal injuries.

Now we are not ones to blow our own trumpet but it is always nice to receive thanks from a satisfied customer so we thought we would share this with you.

David and Nadja were moving from Kings Stanley near Stroud to Sweden, Nadja’s home country. The move went very smoothly, as they confirmed in an email.

Dear Jon and Dave,

I thought I had written to say thank you weeks ago for all your hard work and patience in helping us to ship everything over to Sweden (see picture) but I guess in the flurry of getting started here it slipped my mind.

I read recently that the British International Freight Association (BIFA) had expressed its surprise at a report in The Times claiming that the government intended investing £8 million in customs training and automation to support extra demand for customs brokerage services should the UK leave the EU without a deal next March.

Robert Green is the Director General of BIFA and said that given the importance of the work the organisation does he was surprised to learn of the government’s plans through a newspaper report rather than through an official announcement.
