How do we
'Own It'?

In 2019 we were awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status – which may not sound a lot, but it’s kind of a big deal!

To achieve and maintain this globally recognised customs and security accreditation, each member of the team has to take ownership and demonstrate their commitment to working safely and securely.

How are we 'Creative'?

You have the goods, we have the solutions. Creating products is your passion, bringing them to life in ours.

From pumpkins to Christmas trees, raincoats to dinner plates – logistics is what brings this to life for the end customer. As the solutions architects we make it our business to move goods in the most efficient and effective way possible, powered by our creativity.

We don’t pretend to have a ‘one size fits all’ solution, we understand every business is unique – we work together to create the solution that fits you.

How are we 'Better Together'?

We all know two heads are better than one. But how about 1,000? Collaborating with others enables us to do so much more than we would alone.

Our network of over 1,000 suppliers brings together the best logistics expertise in the world and by looking to customs experts like Gerlach we can unlock exciting combinations of expertise to deliver truly bespoke solutions never seen before.

How are we 'Authentic'?

From day one, it was the ambition of our founders, Ian and Peter to build a company with authenticity at the very heart.

“We work hard every day, to be honest, straightforward and humble – building long term relationships with our customers, suppliers and our team, based on trust. ”
