Freight Forwarding & Customs Management

What We Do

“Ensuring end-to-end supply chain control of your products”

Complimentary to its core Contract Packing and Fulfilment activities, Finishing Line provides a complete Freight and Customs Management service, thereby offering dependable end to end supply chain control as your Lead Logistics Partner.

 

As importers and exporters grapple with the challenges of global volatility and, against a background of spiralling fuel costs, seek alternative methods of distribution to build the low carbon supply chains of the future, integration of primary and secondary distribution is critical as a means of driving down inventories, transport costs and streamlining the supply chain.

 

Drawing on the specialist skills, services and expertise of its carefully selected strategic partners around the world, Finishing Line offers a reliable supply chain execution system with extensive logistics and freight management across all modes of transport, together with international trade, compliance, customs and duty management functionality.

 

In the post-Brexit trading environment, with new Free Trade Agreements and ever-changing customs legislation at home and overseas, it has never been more critical to understand and apply the requisite international processes and controls.
