Being upgraded is a good feeling. And that applies to logistics too, especially when applied to your logistics. No one works harder to get your delivery to its destination on time and in good condition – and smooth any bumps along the way.
Your event, conference or meeting is a big investment in both time and money, so, naturally, you want everything to be perfect. With Connaught, you can be sure we deliver everything on time and in pristine condition.
What do we mean by upgraded logistics?
The Collins English dictionary definition of logistics is:
the detailed planning and organising of large complex operations.
But that’s the bare minimum you should expect from a logistics company. With Connaught’s upgraded logistics, you get so much more.
We’re not only experts at shipping, customs clearance, import export, transport, international forwarding, eCommerce support and everything else your business needs. We’re also here for when things don’t go quite as planned. That’s when Connaught really shines, bringing the reassurance of our experience and our creative thinking to any logistical problem you may have.
Based at Heathrow, the world’s third busiest airport, we use our attention to detail and sharp logistical minds to meet every facet of your needs.
You’ll get to know everyone who looks after your account – and quickly build a trusted relationship, knowing you can rely on them any time of day or night.
Non-standard requests are no problem either. We’re set up to cope – whatever you need. For example, sorting, ironing and re-bagging 2,000 pairs of trousers, [insert internal case study link] and then delivering them to a large retailer. Or getting large amounts of marketing material [insert internal cases tudy link] from three different locations to an event in South America on time – despite the venue being a four-hour flight from the nearest international airport.

Being upgraded means receiving a better service, where trust is implicit and excellence is standard. It’s where long relationships are forged. It’s this promise of cost-effective, improved efficiency that brings your business real benefits.
Our people are at the heart of the Connaught difference and what keeps our customers coming back. For example, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies has been with us since 1987. We know trusted personal relationships help us provide excellent service.
