Cooled or Frozen Transport UK-CH

Hi all,
Does anyone knows a good contact for cooled or frozen transport from UK into CH, or maybe sharing a transport if you already import??
Cheers

Re: Cooled or Frozen Transport UK-CH

what are you trying to move then? If it's just some goods for yourself, indeed they may not be interested - also it would be too expensive for you for sure...

Maybe someone has a big eskie they can move on their next trip.. sorry, no ideas otherwise..

You might like to try Tran Sped AG.

Ask to talk to a guy called Fred Burri. He is English (Yorkshire I think) but has lived in Switzerland for 14 years.

They are Import/Export agents and freight company.

He sorted out my paperwork when the Haulage Company brought my furniture to Switzerland but they had not filled in proof of export from UK and the Swiss customs refused to let the lorry into Switzerland.

Re: Cooled or Frozen Transport UK-CH

Finding a chilled Groupage Transport company from the UK to CH is not easy. First you will need your own Import License for the type(s) of goods, then persuade the transport company to prepare all the T2 export documents from the UK and handle the import with your agent into CH on your behalf. Although it can be done, it is very expensive.

We used this route once, a German company, but they lost nearly 1000 Kg of cheese (and all the documents) for nearly a week just before our Christmas period last year. They did find it and got it to us in good condition but I certainly would not recommend them!

We've spent 2 years researching and trying out various options (and use 3 of them depending on quantities and time of year), there's clearly some common ground, so maybe we should talk

So, a great recommendation then!

EDIT - Sorry, now I think I understand the recommendation - he did not originally arrange the transport but sorted the problem for you?

Re: Cooled or Frozen Transport UK-CH

Hopefully this doesn't infringe any forum rules. I operate a transport/courier service based in the UK, specialising in European deliveries. I can arrange for chilled/frozen consignments and also handle all customs documentation, unless you prefer to utilise your own customs clearing agent.

That is correct. Must say my English wasn't clear and I do not have any excuses. I do tell my parents that they wasted their money on private education for me.

Re: Cooled or Frozen Transport UK-CH

I'm possibly looking to buy a vehicle, doing a monthly run between UK/CH. Just trying to get my head around the import regulations before I commit to buy. What are you importing?
