The European Union and the United Kingdom signed a free trade agreement on December 24, 2020. From January 1, 2021, different rules will apply when doing business with the UK. You will have to deal with customs obligations, such as import and export declarations, inspections, export certificates and export documents.

We directly communicate with airlines, ensuring high flexibility and quick response times. For your every shipment, our professional team will provide the solution.
Recently our teams successfully carried out a full charter movement from the Czech Republic to the United Kingdom, an emergency solution to avoid delays at the borders because of Brexit impact. The project cargo itself was 11,000 kg rotor, transported with the aircraft AN12. The route of movement was ex customer location Plzen, Czech Republic trucking to Brno Airport, flying over to East Midlands Airport and final leg delivery. All of this was executed in one day, a great example of what our teamwork can achieve. A project well executed by our freight forwarding division in the Czech Republic, United Kingdom and Maurice Ward Logistic – trucking division.

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.
