Neptune: “an integral, trusted business within the shipping industry”

Neptune Shipping Agency has served the ceramics, porcelain, stone, and adhesive industries over many decades. According to the company, its expertise encompasses the following services:

  • Worldwide containerised shipping
  • European full and part trailer operations
  • Multi modal full load groupage from Europe
  • Custom clearance

As a proud member of the British International Freight Association since 1970, Neptune says it has become an integral, trusted business within the shipping industry. The company has achieved an AEO accreditation (UK Authorised Economic Operator) which allows it to fast-track consignments through customs, allowing any selected for examination or inspection to be prioritised and checked over other cargo.

Neptune specialises in multiple shipment types including FCL (full container load) shipments globally. It maintains a trusted network of overseas agents and carriers which it liaises with daily to ensure consignments connect with weekly sailings out of all major ports.

The company offers LCL (less than container load) solutions for smaller consignments that do not require a full container. These can reportedly help save money without having to wait for further orders to justify the cost of an FCL consignment.

From Europe, the company offers various equipment types including 40’ PW and standard 40’ containers, aimed to cater for all business needs. This is to ensure customers do not need to compromise or limit themselves to one mode of transport. Neptune can also arrange multi-collections from several suppliers or sites for one container shipment.

The company’s Intermodal service utilises established rail links services across Europe. With years of experience working alongside dedicated partners who operate these routes, Neptune says it offers the most cost-effective rail services, which provide a reliable transport solution to move containers through Europe and to the UK. The company can obtain 20’, 30’, 40’, 45’ pallet wide containers or swap body trailers, so that your freight can be transported through Europe in the most economical and cost-effective way, it says, be that a full or partial load, with multiple weekly departures.

Neptune operates various road options including FTL (full truck load) and LTL (less than truckload) operating on curtain sided vans, 7.5T trucks all the way up to a double manned articulated truck. There is also the option of an unaccompanied multi modal service for a more cost-effective solution for your Spanish consignments.

“We also take great pride in our dedicated express service to and from the UK with daily departures for your time sensitive and crucial orders,” the company says.

It continues: “Our in-house customs clearance team have vast knowledge of commodities and customs procedures. They are on hand to assist with any questions that may arise with your shipments. We have invested heavily in employing additional staff to ensure that Brexit regulations are handled with ease and simplicity.”

MyNSA is a recently launched online portal from Neptune. The platform provides clients with the ability to track their consignments 24/7. The company also offers competitive rates for marine risks insurance cover and are happy to discuss any aspects of this policy which may help minimise the chances of claims arising.

Sustainability is a subject which Neptune continually promotes, the company says. “We have undertaken the planting of a 5,000 UK native trees and shrubs at our HQ in Cornwall to assist with offsetting not only our own carbon emissions, but our clients as well.”

It concludes: “Neptune has the whole package, efficient modern technology with the conviction that the ‘old fashioned values’ of focusing on service to the client is your best guarantee that consignments are handled speedily and with professionalism throughout.”
