Finalists of BIFA 2023 Freight Service Awards

Award-worthy solutions.

We’re proud to be shortlisted to the finals of BIFA’s Freight Service Awards, focusing on our solutions across Europe.

We showcased the value Baxter Freight bring to both customers and suppliers, making it to the final out of thousands of entries.

For us, we treat our customers businesses like our own. We understand how important it is to upkeep the quality of a brand, so that your businesses reputation doesn’t tarnish, and the end customer receives the goods that they know and love.

Through building strong relationships and going the extra mile, we’ve been able to work with market-leading brands across the world.

From modular buildings to fashion, construction to FMCG – our expertise in moving a wide array of goods means we’re equipped to move whatever you require, no matter the shape or size, or complexity of route!

A great example of supporting our customers build their brand through the power of logistics is Portakabin, a market leader in the design, manufacture and installation of modular buildings, and a pioneer of advanced offsite construction.

Similar to many, Portakabin felt the impact of Brexit when needing to move their goods across Europe. From their needs, we were able to tailor a solution, helping them navigate commercial invoices and essential commodity codes.

Thanks to the experts that make up Team Baxter, we were able to provide a pre-Brexit solution, meaning Portakabin weren’t held up at borders and could keep their modular buildings moving.

“Baxter Freight were pivotal in ensuring business continuity. Not only did they help in a seamless transition, we had zero vehicles held at the borders for non-compliance to the rules of the agreement. This enabled us to achieve our ‘on time and on budget’ promise. Moving forward, Baxter’s continue to assist Portakabin with movements into the EU and provide a one stop shop for transport planning and customs control compliance. I can honestly say that without Baxter’s assisting us with our European freight, we would have not succeeded in ensuring business continuity at a critical time.”
Gary Owen
Head of Logistics

We worked hard to create a pre-Brexit solution, by committing to supporting our customers, building strong relationships, staying ahead of legislation and always going the the extra mile.

Collaborating with our customs partner, Gerlach, enabled us to create a seamless system where customs documentation is expedited 24/7 without delays.

Given the complexity of Portakabin’s shipments, which often involved multiple commodity codes and diverse origins, we seamlessly integrated ourselves into their business; effectively becoming an extension of their team.

We knew that any damage along the way could potentially tarnish Portakabin’s reputation. This was minimised due to our strong relationship, with honesty and authenticity at the heart of everything we do.

Thanks to our Pre-Brexit solution, Portakabin are trading in Europe like Brexit never happened!

Our Accelerate Europe Team make up just a small piece of the Team Baxter puzzle, but the work they do is invaluable. Thanks to them, many of our customers are back trading in Europe.

Every day they work hard, finding solutions to help both our suppliers and customers succeed.

Through strong relationships with suppliers, and a 24/7 customs team – moving goods through Europe has never been easier!
