The Indian Subcontinent has made significant inroads into improving its trade environment in the last few years. With its logistics infrastructure improving at a rapid rate, more companies have begun or are considering sourcing goods from the Indian Subcontinent. There are financial benefits for trading with this region as duty rates are reduced from India and Sri Lanka. Duty from Pakistan and Bangladesh is free under current trading conditions.

Whether your business is importing clothing, textiles or machinery, we can help. PFE offers Sea Freight services from the whole Indian Subcontinent region. What’s more we have long established relationships with our Partners in the region which enables us to effectively control the supply chain on your behalf. We can arrange everything for you and make sure your goods are delivered safely and securely when and where you want them.

If you are considering sourcing from the Indian Subcontinent and will need help and advice with importing from the area we can offer the knowledge and experience you need. If you are an established importer from the Indian Subcontinent we can offer a streamlined service, with one point of contact that will manage your entire supply chain on your behalf.

Simon Canning, who heads up PFE’s Imports team says: “The growth potential the Indian Subcontinent offers has resulted in many companies in the UK importing from the region for the first time. Our supply chain is as robust from this area as it is from China because we have good relationships with our Partners in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. We offer an extremely stable service that many of our existing customers enjoy.”Simon continues, “PFE’s devanning service into our own Warehouse in the UK provides security of your product. Our customers’ goods are not re-handled anywhere in the process. They come into our warehouse where PFE staff check the goods and then redistribute them throughout the UK.”
