CML has a robust portfolio of shipping solutions to meet the requirements of both SME companies and large corporations where rate stability, capacity, tracking and reliability are essential.

As a truly neutral NVOCC, CML has agreements in place with all global carriers and alliances across key international trade routes.  With additional support from contracts agreed at origin in conjunction with our overseas partners, CML can offer basket deals with either monthly, quarterly yearly fixed terms.

CML has an eye for detail and is able to recognise ahead of time when capacity or rate fluctuations will impact the market.  Unlike many of our larger peers, our privately owned status gives us the agility to take advantage when rates are low ensuring that our clients can plan and benefit from rate reductions at the point they happen, rather than receive a minimal saving weeks after the fact.

Customers are assured of high levels of communication as their consignments are managed and tracked through the supply chain process.  As standard for all our customers, key milestones are automatically updated and reported in real-time.  Our global container tracking module links directly to carriers and port operators.  This is always supported with email and phone communications from our dedicated key account managers to ensure that exceptions and urgent requirements are communicated with enough time to find alternative solutions to problems which can be implemented to avoid impact on our customers’ critical path.

CML is proud that our approach to tracking is slightly different to many of our competitors in that our significant investment in technology and training has allowed us to tailor our world class systems to meet the unique needs that each customers’ business model dictates rather than asking our clients to change their model or compromise their requirements to meet the needs of our system. This ensures confidence in CML’s ability to provide the level of information required to plan for the arrival of goods through to final delivery at our customer’s warehouses or nominated distribution centres.

CML also offers a Global LCL groupage (import, export and cross trade) product and can provide an inclusive rate from origin port to any UK destination allowing the pre-costing of imported products using nothing more than a packing specification.

Having decades of practical experience in the end to end freight management of containers including standard dry containers, reefer, open top, liquid bulk, flexi-tank, flat rack and out of gauge container shipping (import, export and cross trade), you can be assured that your goods are in experienced hands.

"We were contacted by James to introduce CML and their services to us and have not looked back since. The team is fantastic along with the service. When we send enquiries through they are responded to very quickly and when we proceed we are fully updated throughout the process. When we have encountered third party issues the team do everything they can to resolve and keep us up-to-date. I have no hesitation in recommending CML and have done so several times to date."
