Providing for European Freight in Uncertain Times

The current climate is uncertain in so many ways and freight is no different; there are restrictions in almost every area of society which have sprung from COVID, various trade talks and agreements have been postponed, and of course there is the looming spectre of 1st January 2021 when Brexit, in all its uncertainty, begins in reality rather than just on paper.

Ace Express Freight is exceptionally well placed to counter all of these challenges and provide the solutions, service and care needed to break down any obstacles and swiftly and reliably move freight to and from the continent. We have a network of reliable and established partners across Europe, from the Iberian Peninsula to the tundra of Lapland and the sunny beaches of southern Turkey. We are proud to call our European setup a network of partners, not just suppliers, and between us we get the job done when it counts.

Reliability Counts

Our setup is flexible and regular, at the outset we guarantee weekly Friday afternoon departures from six European hubs and from our Dublin depot to Europe. Additional capacity is provided as volume demands with rapid transit times. For single pallets and groupage consignments, expect delivery in two to four working days across most of Western Europe, and around a week to other destinations. Full loads travel faster again, and for less critical cargo we offer economy container services to deliver the best possible value.

Our network avoids potential delays and other challenges associated with Brexit by shipping in the most part around the UK rather than through it. Although naturally the land bridge can be and still is frequently used for more urgent trips. 

When customs clearance is required, we’re your partners. We have a fully bonded warehouse, AEO Certification with Revenue and our own in-house customs clearance department. 

If your shipment needs that extra mile, we cater for various additional requirements:

•    Same-day or timed collection and delivery
•    Dedicated express vehicles for critical cargo 
•    Outsize cargo, including low-loads and exceptional loads
•    Courier service worldwide 

As Easy as it Gets

Booking with Ace Express Freight to Europe and beyond couldn’t be simpler. We offer online, phone or email booking with almost immediate acknowledgement. Within confines of a daily cut-off dictated by time difference, collections anywhere in Europe will occur the next day and we offer status updates live online, with Pan-European Track & Trace coming from 2021.
