Cross Trade Shipments

In an increasingly integrated global economy more and more of our clients are arranging cross trade shipments; sourcing products and manufacturing opportunities outside of the UK to then export to the rest of the world.




Cross trade shipping is cargo that is transported by either road, rail, air or sea from one country to another but not through the local business base. For example, Wallis Shipping will send cargo from China to Europe without the goods routing via our client based in the UK.



Wallis is able to meet this new demand with overseas freight forwarding and can arrange to ship your goods from anywhere in the world to your required final destination.


Cross trade logistics is made possible at Wallis with our extensive network of trusted shipping agents and worldwide partners in key transportation locations around the world to make your cross-trade shipments simple and easy.

This service is delivered applying the same criteria and support from our experienced multilingual personnel as if we were handling your regular exports and imports. Furthermore, at Wallis Shipping we can support you with our advanced Exportease freight software to produce international freight documentation and even track your containers wherever they may be in the world.

We can deliver first rate cross trade logistics services for shipments of any size from just about any port in the world to even the most difficult to reach destinations.

With our strong overseas presence and staff who travel the globe talking to authorities and agents, we obtain high quality services from point-to-point by over-seeing the supply chain whichever country it starts and ends in.
