Air freight is a complex process involving several stages, and multiple service providers. The difference between fast transit times and the often-reported delays is maintaining constant control.

At GBA, we know the meaning of “urgent”: and we also know it’s what happens on the ground that makes the real difference. So we collect quickly, we don’t leave cleared goods waiting for hours in the carrier’s warehouse, and we deliver as soon as possible by dedicated vehicle.

From a single small parcel, through regular supply chain shipments, to whole plane charters, GBA protects your investment in the speed of air freight.

  • Scheduled priority air freight

  • Deferred (economy) option

  • Small parcel express

  • Onboard courier

  • Door-to-door anywhere in the world

  • Full plane charters

  • Own vehicle fleet for fast collections/deliveries in UK and Europe

  • Trusted partner agents at every airport worldwide

  • Air + Sea catch-up service

  • Regulated agent

Ocean freight can be a false economy if it sacrifices the safety and security of your goods, and lets down your customers through delayed deliveries. That’s why GBA gives you the economy of ocean freight, but with added urgency, certainty and security.

Our own vehicles in the UK and Europe are on call 24/7 to manage collection and delivery times. They’re equipped with security, tracking and monitoring devices that keep your loads safe, and their progress visible. And our global partner network means we can offer fast clearance at destination, and delivery to the door - anywhere in the world.
We handle FCL, LCL, Ro-Ro... and full projects such as entire factory relocations.  The common feature of all GBA ocean services is end-to-end control.
