Reading, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 09, 2009 -- Specialist Packaging, Shipping and Logistics Company â Pack & Send â launched their UK service this week with a typically unconventional project which chillingly illustrated how versatile their unique packing and door-to-door delivery service isâ¦.
Pack & Send is a new packaging and shipping company which officially launched their unique collection, packing and freight management service in the UK this week. Although the Companyâs philosophy is that they can âsend anything, anywhereâ, their UK Chief Executive, Mike Ryan, did not expect to have this tested quite so hard by their first customer.
âOur customer wanted us to provide safe collection and delivery of some catering itemsâ, he explained, âbut the challenging thing was that the goods were 60 Mars Ice Cream Bars which needed buying in the UK and delivering still frozen to her in Sydney, Australia!â
The Pack & Send store now open at 91 Kings Road, Reading is the first outlet for the business which handles the collection and delivery of any item to any location in the world, but it is their secure packing and crating services, door-to-door freight management and ability to handle fragile, large, awkward and valuable items that sets them apart from conventional courier solutions.
âPack & Send was the perfect choice for this shipmentâ, continued Tony Fowles, UK General Manager. âNot only were we able to supply insulated packing and sufficient dry ice to keep the ice cream frozen for the day long plane transit, but through our contacts with the airlines we were able to arrange refrigerated storage at Heathrow prior to the flight down to Sydney and again at the other end.â
âYou must love your ice cream to have it shipped halfway around the globeâ, he added, âbut as Pack & Send originated in Australia, and is the leading retail freight business there, it is no surprise that we were the first choice when it came to shipping from the UK..â
Pack & Send are able to help businesses and consumers across the UK with more conventional requirements too. Their range of domestic and international courier services and collection and custom packing solutions are ideal for transporting anything from spare parts to works of art.
Pack & Send are planning to open 240 stores across the UK some of which will be owner operated through a franchise license. Individuals interested in owning and operating a Pack & Send store can find more information at http://www.packsend.co.uk.
