AGI Harwich employ a team of logistics specialists who have experience in the transportation of goods both locally and internationally. The team fully understand the need to adapt to a changing transportation environment due to increased import/export regulations post-Brexit. At AGI, considerable planning was undertaken well in advance of the regulation changes to ensure that any delays were minimized.

All AGI staff took part in intensive training to ensure that they were prepared for the increase in legislation on goods coming into and leaving the UK. The Brexit rulings have had a huge impact on the UK and European logistics industry. They have also, however, created additional business opportunities. Through thorough preparation and industry insight, the team at AGI Harwich have been able to increase turnover in an increasingly competitive field.

AGI Harwich: one on England’s Haven ports

AGI Harwich port

Harwich has a long and illustrious maritime history. Located at the confluence of the rivers Orwell and Stour, Harwich International Port is one of only five deep-water ports on the east coast of England. Being one of only a handful of ports suitable for safe anchorage between the Thames further south and the Humber in the north, Harwich has been instrumental in the UK’s shipping history both commercially and for military purposes.

Harwich International Port runs a twice daily ferry service for both passengers and freight services. Goods passing through AGI Harwich are regularly transported through the port to the Hook of Holland and Rotterdam Europort. The port at Harwich is used for general and bulk cargo movements and was recently used as the base for the installation of off-shore wind farms in the southern North Sea.

Alongside the AGI teams based at Immingham in the north and Folkestone further south, AGI Harwich provide a reliable and professional transportation of goods from the east of England to continental Europe. To find out more about AGI Harwich call 01255 563 980 or e-mail harwich@agi.global.
