What supply chain challenges were you facing prior to appointing Anglia
We were awarded a significant contract which, required the ability to import goods worldwide that
needed to be ‘hubbed’ in the United Kingdom and Dubai prior to onwards transmission. The
requirement came at short notice and multiple stakeholders were involved.
The chosen freight forwarder had to have the ability to work over multiple time zones, with many
stakeholders and have the flexibility to provide solutions to an ever-changing requirement.
What were the key elements behind choosing Anglia Forwarding as your

We interviewed numerous freight forwarding companies after an initial tendering phase and it
became apparent that specialist knowledge and skills were required for this project.
Throughout the process Anglia Forwarding were open, honest and engaging. Where they had
