The company describes itself as an international freight forwarder and road freight firm, which trades out of an operating centre in Barking.

It holds a standard national licence authorising 10 HGVs and two trailers. As well as offering warehousing, customs clearance and air and sea freight services, it also operated a same day UK courier service with its in-house fleet of vehicles.
