Mainfreight announced that it has opened a new branch providing a full range of air and ocean services in London, UK.
The new facility is located near London Heathrow Terminal 4 and includes an 8,000 sq ft warehouse. Mainfreight now has UK air freight and ocean freight teams handling door-to-door import and export shipments, customs clearance and documentation, consolidation services, and UK and European distribution.
