Velta International has opened a second airfreight office in Manchester, having initially opened their Heathrow office at the beginning of 2014.
The freight forwarder says it has undergone an extensive expansion, following an “ever increasing demand for their provision of supply chain solutions”.
The company says the new office enables it to handle airfreight services more efficiently; providing direct control and consistency on all shipments from the North of the country, as well as cutting down transit times for client’s goods that previously would have entered the country via Heathrow.
Additionally it allows Velta to offer the export of goods from the North of England, and comes at a time when the Government has pledged funding for the development of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ to boost the economic growth of major cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, as well as the surrounding areas.
The opening of the new office comes months after Velta established a Glasgow badge, enabling faster clearance on goods arriving into the UK via Scotland, and enhances the comprehensive business model already offered across the organisation on the transportation, storage and fulfilment of goods.
