Since opening in April 2021, the AGI Newcastle office, who specialise in Air Freight, Sea Freight and Road Freight have recorded significant growth, with the office recently relocating to make space for the expanding team!
The office is run by Carl Thompson, who has over a decade of experience in freight, and the office itself located in Boldon Colliery just moments from the Port of Tyne and Newcastle International Airport. The location is key for the office, with the A1(M) connecting the Port of Tyne with the South, with multiple road routes to Scotland. This means the office can supply a road freight solution across the whole of the UK!
As the AGI Newcastle office specialise in Air Freight, it’s no surprise that the team utilise Newcastle International Airport for both imports and exports. But it’s not only local airports they team have access to. For cargo that needs to enter or leave the UK from any major airport, the team can help. And despite being nearly 300 miles from London, the majority of the Air Freight the team arranges goes through London Heathrow.
So no matter where the cargo you are transporting needs to go to and from, the AGI Newcastle team can offer you a solution. If you need assistance with any full or part loads, just contact the team, and they’ll be happy to help!
The AGI Newcastle office is perfectly located to offer Sea Freight solutions, as the office is based just 3 miles from the Port of Tyne. Slightly further south is Teesport too, so the office is spoilt for choice when transporting goods across water.
Like with Air Freight, the team have access to all major ports throughout the UK for imports and exports, so if you are looking at an ocean freight solution, get in touch with AGI Newcastle!
