In House Facilities

Track and Trace

GCL’s Track-and-Trace facility allows you to monitor your shipments, wherever they are in the world, 24 hours a day.

Bonded warehousing

We have 55,000 sq ft of on-site transit and bonded warehousing and access to much more when needed. Use our warehouse facility to save on storage costs elsewhere,  maintain ‘buffer’ supplies or ship onward on a ‘just in time’ basis.  We can arrange to break-bulk and ship to multiple destinations for you too.

Hazardous handling

From printing inks, paints and solvents to flammable liquids, lacquer, poison, corrosive materials, compressed gasses and other hazardous items, we can handle it all.

On-site x-ray machine

Having an x-ray machine on-site means that we can process export airfreight consignments rapidly, in full compliance with DfT security regulations.  Our competitors often use sub-contracted facilities, which takes time.  With GCL, you avoid delays and minimise costs.

Aircraft pallet building and breakdown

If you don’t have a full pallet-load, we can build your export on to our own aircraft pallet for speedy departure.  We provide fast breakdown of incoming aircraft pallets too, with the aim of getting your imports to your door without delay.

Specialist expertise

From a vast experience of general importing and exporting, some specialist areas have emerged over recent years:

  • One expanding aspect of our business is delivery of aerospace components.  We are chosen partner for several suppliers to Rolls Royce and Airbus.  In addition, we are contracted to export spare parts for AOG (Aircraft on Ground) within the executive jet market.  This can mean shipping anything from small parts to major components, any time of the day or night, to arrive within the shortest timeframe.
  • We are accustomed to difficult/sensitive products – we move hazardous inks for one of the UK’s major ink manufacturers.
