Value for money on freight shipments
When we say value for money we don’t mean the cheapest. Like most things in life with a freight forwarder you get what you pay for cheapest isn’t necessarily best. With sea and airfreight shipping there are a lot of elements that make up the final quote. A good freight forwarder will advise you of ALL costs to final destinations no hidden charges.
We are no cowboy freight forwarder
The UK freight industry in the UK is unregulated, this means that it is open to infiltration by “cowboy” freight forwarders. A good guide to the status of a freight forwarder is whether they are a Limited company.
Many freight forwarders are members of BIFA (British International Freight Association). Membership of BIFA requires liability insurance (which many forwarders do not have). We are Members of the BIFA (British International Freight Association) and trade under their terms and conditions.
Professional freight forwarder
There are many factors that can effect all types of shipping like weather, Government bodies (like Port Health & HM Customs), human error, language and technical problems. A good freight forwarder will inform the customer of any delays or problems of there shipments. It is an impossibility to guarantee all transit times but the difference between a good freight forwarder is that they tell you delays straight away. We can all take bad news as long as we are informed of the situation and offered a next best solution. A good freight forwarder will keep their customers informed at all times including weekends and evenings as YFT Logistics cover 24/7 365 days a year. We advise our clients immediately of delays and any holds imposed by customs. Alternative arrangements are made immediately for our client base without any further delays.

Why you should use us for your freight shipments
As a general rule small to medium sized freight companies give a good all round service. They have lower overheads and therefore require lower profit margins. Smaller companies are also more flexible and don’t suffer from big company politics. This is why we are a big competitor against the big companies offering you lower rates on your freight shipments.
