The Current UK Market

UK volumes continue to remain low, which has resulted in flat overall month-on-month growth. Thus, conservative increases are expected as we draw towards peak season. The UK market remains competitive and is largely price-driven inbound and outbound.

Service disruptions continue with the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Therefore, developments are critical to the sanctions and global trade that impacts capacity and rates. The future of this situation remains uncertain.

Simply Cargo sets themselves apart from the other UK-based wholesalers with their exceptional customer service and 100% neutrality.

Thank you to Colin Haines (General Manager) for providing us with some insight into Simply Cargo UK.
