What Our Clients Say

There is no flannel, we give them the details required and they quite literally always deliver! I would have no hesitation in recommending FCL Global and in actual fact, many of our tier one suppliers are using them to deliver equipment and materials to us, case in point.

Very good for freight quotes and I’m very happy with regular updates on all shipments. I believe the reason I am able to give positive feedback for FCL is because of your service levels and support so special thanks to you… much appreciated.

We feel that we have a good working relationship with FCL and communication is excellent. RFQs are responded to in a timely manner and we feel it’s positive that we are able to have open discussions regarding costs to ensure that we are receiving the most competitive price without compromising service.

History and Heraldry Rotherham have been utilising the services of FCL Global Forwarding for many years now, and we receive an excellent service from both teams on both sides of the water here in UK and also in China, the team are very helpful and efficient. The price for the service they offer is very competitive and does not reflect the service we receive. This year we have shipped over 50 containers with FCL from all destinations across China.

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.
