What Our Clients Say

Everyone I have spoken to at FCL have been a great help and I never feel like they want to rush me off the phone. My main contact within FCL… goes above and beyond with all shipments no matter the value. I couldn’t ask for better service – on some cases I have paid that little extra just so I know that the shipment is in good hands.

For us FCL have been a quick, reliable and efficient service provider from our very first container. They consistently deliver and are our preferred partner for many export routes out of the UK.

As you know freight comes down to cost, however for me customer service is very much key to our business. We all have customers we need to facilitate and getting their orders “on time & in full” is fundamental to our businesses. We cannot do that without the support of their nominated freight forwarders/shipping lines etc. FCL and IMD are on the same page, FCL’s attention to detail on all aspects of Customer Service is second to none.

FCL are always helpful, the service is good and they get the job done. The prices are also very competitive.

Well where do I start? The staff are very professional, helpful and efficient as well as funny and pleasant. They are a great team… I like sending over a PL - quote is back within minutes, jobs booked, job done. If supplier goes direct, your quote is on there attached and ready, just think that’s really efficient. The prices are good – I know FCL’s price is going to be the best and not undercut by other shippers, as I do have to tender out every so often to make sure the price is the best I can get. Overall, great staff and a great service – I honestly don’t think there is anything I would change.
