Freight firm key to business success.
A TELFORD shipping firm has helped put a company specialising in luxury trike conversions on track to record its best every trading year.
Global Freight Services has added Donnington Wood-based AA Trikes to its growing portfolio of clients and is playing a significant role in the company's ongoing success.
Run by entrepreneur Dave Partridge, the business specialises in converting solo motorbikes into trikes using kit imported from USbased manufacturers Californian Sidecar Conversions (CSC).
It is on track for its best ever year after achieving 60 per cent of its annual target in the first first six months of 2019.
"In less than 12 months we have completed six conversions for customers and each one has required the kit to be imported from the States," Mr Partridge said.
"We would not have been able to carry out this work without the support of Global Freight. We struggled to find anyone else who would manage the entire process from start to finish so when they said they could help we were over the moon. We do nothing but pay the bill at the end. They sort every-thing from the physical shipment of the goods to all the necessary paperwork. The software they use also enables us to track when the item has left the port and the team are very efficient at letting us know when the kit is due to arrive at the workshop so we can prepare the bikes accordingly." Anton Gunter, managing director of Global Freight Services, said: "We work with a range of businesses to support their import and export objectives to enable them to grow their markets internationally.
"AA Trikes is a fantastic example of a small business here in Shropshire which is expanding year on year and we are delighted to be supporting this growth.
"We know that Dave is currently in the process of deciding whether or not to start exporting trike conversions outside of the UK so we will be advising him on how best to do this should he decide to take this forward."
