Good News Story: Direct Access

Air Freight

We were contacted by the Dept of Investment and Trade to see if we could look to assist Direct Access ( last year after they secured a contract to become the Universal Design Consultants at Dubai Expo2020. So after further discussion, we confirmed would be delighted to assist however we could.

DAC Ltd has many UK customers and was thought of when the current COVID-19 crisis hit,  in terms of could they supply PPE through their international connections. They, of course, rose to the challenge and in fact, several of their suppliers did manufacture Surgical Masks.

Steven and his team contacted us for assistance in getting some of the most urgent products on the planet moving from China into the UK. After many emails in the UK and China & many more conversations on type approval and authenticity certifications being issued by the Chinese Govt. We could expedite these shipments moving through our network Air freight services.

In reference to the picture we collected these goods over last weekend 2/3rd May and flew them into London  Heathrow on a direct flight arriving Sunday 3rd May and arranged the Customs clearance and delivery into the customers own premises this morning Tues 5th May.

Direct Access

We had already moved another smaller Air shipment last week into one of DAC own customers directly & we are hugely proud of our association with Steve and all his team. Especially in being able in some small way support UK’s Hospital trusts and Fire, Police & Ambulance services in moving much needed and extremely urgent PPE equipment.

Several further shipments are planned and DAC – Carry Cargo International and our Network partners I am sure will meet these challenges with professionalism and care by co-ordinating these time-critical shipments from factory to door.

Should you need any assistance with this type of movement please contact our specialist team on +44 113 271 1555 or email
