Always going the extra mile...

Transport Solutions

Air Freight Services
As a top customer of the world’s major airlines, you can be sure RIF Worldwide Plc are positioned to ‘make things happen’. As we all know, with generally only a handful of airlines operating on each trade lane, you need more than luck to ensure your shipment flies as booked.

Pre-allocated space with the flexibility of airline choice means each potential option is a realistic option. We also offer cargo assembly for goods received from multiple suppliers, consolidations, ‘next-flight’ and aircraft charters.

Within our airfreight product we also cater for the movement of outsize cargo, hazardous goods, high value and pilferable goods.

Ocean Freight Services
RIF Worldwide Plc is skilled in the movement of Full Containers (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments. We also offer un-containerised cargo services designed to fully control the transport of abnormal loads.

With an NVOC (Non-Vessel Owning Carrier) forming part of our group, you can be sure that our thorough knowledge and buying power will reflect the levels of performance you expect.

With customs links to all the major UK ports and the capabilities to ship to and from over 100 ports worldwide, we are ready to introduce realistic and efficient solutions into your supply chain.

Intra-European Road Freight
Whether you are looking for a next-day delivery or delivery within a longer time frame purely to keep costs to a minimum, we can help.

Utilising a carefully structured network, groupage and full load shipments can be handled easily both into and out of Europe. We know that our customers want simplicity and flexibility, and that is what we offer.

There are no size or weight limitations and each shipment goes with single source control.

Customs Brokerage
We provide our own in-house Customs Brokerage services with full electronic links to all UK ports and airports. CFSP (Customs Freight Simplified Procedures) is one of the latest and biggest advances made by Customs and Excise, and we’re delighted to open this new opportunity to you.

As part of a drive to remove personnel from UK ports and airports, CFSP is designed to enable immediate and paperless customs clearances of your shipments. In particular, this provides huge benefits for industries where documents or other checks are required at the port before release of a shipment.

Special advantages are realised by companies requiring quick deliveries, importing urgent products, high value cargo, licensed textile products, footwear, ceramics and pharmaceutical goods. At the same time, companies wishing to reduce their transit times without increasing their transport costs benefit hugely. Does this include you?

Duty Management
We believe a frequently overlooked area of opportunity for cost reduction is customs duties. We know the importation of goods brings with it a multitude of questions and costs that can seem baffling.

We also believe the knowledge and skills we hold can be integrated into assisting clients with a complete revamp and, if necessary, overhaul of end to end supply chain practices and procedures. We can help to provide comprehensive advice on all these matters.

Our understanding of the subject, experience and contacts allow us to guide you through the maze of customs regulations and procedures. We’ll ensure you take full advantage of all cost reduction possibilities whilst meeting your obligations to Customs.

Why not lower your costs?

A customs duty review will often lead to substantial indirect tax reductions that can be applied to your business going forward; perhaps this should be considered. Furthermore, our work also frequently results in significant sums being refunded from historical transactions.

You simply cannot afford to run the risk that you are failing to maximise all the opportunities available to reduce your cost base; allow us to explore the possibilities with you.

You might find that the result is an increase in company profits and an increased competitive edge.

Pay as you go insurance
You can′t predict when nature will strike, or when an unfortunate accident will occur, but you can protect your goods with insurance.

It is unlikely that your buyer’s or supplier’s insurance is adequate. It′s risky to rely on someone else′s insurance. Arranging your own cargo insurance through us, puts you in control.

Our Cargo Insurance service is effectively ‘pay as you go’. Each time you have a shipment you will pay an insurance fee based on the value of the goods. But in times when you are not shipping, you will pay nothing.

And since we coordinate your shipments, we have instant access to your cargo documentation. In the event of an incident we′ll prepare the paperwork and process your claim, saving you time and hassle.
