Although founded in 2002, the Britannia Logistics story actually begins with the increasingly demanding logistics requirements of its forbearer, Britannia Marine, in the late 1990s.
With unscrupulous freight forwarders often letting the company down, more control in this area was needed.
Britannia Marine assumed more and more logistics responsibilities until the only remaining step was to form an independent logistics company.
As well as being the year Britannia Logistics was formed (originally under the guise of Britannia Freight & Packing), 2002 also saw growing interests in the oil & gas industry harnessed by the formation of Britannia Oil Services Ltd. Britannia Group was born.
The formation of Britannia Logistics (initially known as Britannia Freight & Packing), complete with IATA and FIATA/BIFA certification, allowed us to deal directly with the major sea, air and land carriers as well as customs houses throughout the world.
A big step in the company’s development came in 2010, when we aqcuired IATA Cargo Agent status (the highest certification available), which granted us access to the full range of air-freight options – cementing our ability to provide independant services.
And now, in 2012, as we approach our second decade of trading, what started as a facilitator of logistics for its sister companies is now a fully fledged logistics provider in its own right.
