Felixstowe, Suffolk United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 09, 2011 -- SUFFOLK-based freight forwarder Dooley Rumble has received HM Revenue and Customs approval to host a special customs facility at its Claydon site.
The successful East Anglian firm, which earlier this year announced a major warehousing contract with Notting Hill's designer furniture company Made.com, will now operate an ERTS (Enhanced Remote Transit Shed) facility for cargo companies arriving into Felixstowe.
The facility enables Dooley Rumble to move cargo from the quay at Felixstowe before any cargoes have been Customs cleared.
Andy Davis, General Manager, said: "Our decision to request approval for this facility came on the back of growing demand from the freight forwarding community.
"Adhering to strict Customs regulations, we're now able to offer clients a secure facility in which to store their products whilst they undergo Customs formalities.
"Once Customs are cleared, we provide fast access to all major road links utilising our modern fleet of vehicles."
Dooley Rumble offers nationwide coverage and can handle most types of cargo.
The company has over 20 years of experience in distribution and warehousing for a variety of sectors. Founded in 1986, it has broadened its operation a number of times in recent years.
In 2000 it developed an export packing department, and only last year it gained certification to provide Driver CPC training.
Its site has substantial warehouse space which can be leased by external companies for a project-life or extended period.
