DHL Freight cements UK partnership with Baxter Freight

Freight arm of global firm extends partnership with Nottingham-based freight forwarder to help facilitate smoother transportation of goods from the UK to Europe.

This collaboration aims to help businesses navigate customs barriers and ensure timely deliveries to customers across Europe, thereby enhancing their competitiveness in the market.

Initially named the UK partner for DHL Freight in 2020, Baxter Freight has experienced steady sales growth over the past four years, particularly in pallet and groupage freight. This strengthened partnership now offers UK businesses access to globally recognised shipping services while receiving personalised support from the Baxter Freight team.

The aftermath of Brexit has posed challenges for British businesses trading with Europe, particularly concerning customs regulations. Baxter Freight has been proactive in addressing these challenges, with the support of its partnership with DHL Freight. By leveraging DHL Freight's extensive road freight network in Europe, which covers 95% of business addresses in the EU, Baxter Freight aims to help UK businesses stay ahead in the European marketplace.

Peter Isler, Managing Director Baxter Freight, explained: “Baxter Freight works with some of the UK’s most well-loved brands and the DHL partnership has helped us create solutions that keep them competitive in the European marketplace.

“In the fast-paced world of logistics, customers expect fast delivery times without compromising on service. Our team here at Baxter Freight helps our customers to overcome issues with customs documentation, while also providing the best routing options and tracking.”

He added: This partnership has also benefitted smaller British brands who need a value-driven solution and the support of an Account Manager to assist with the most complex challenges logistics can throw at them.”

Thomas Vogel, COO DHL Freight, added: “Since Brexit, our partnership with Baxter Freight has grown step by step. Baxter Freight provides a strong commercial team which stands for a personal and “local” service, facilitating smoother beginnings, operations, and expansions in international shipping. Meanwhile, DHL Freight UK leverages our extensive 'global' network, guaranteeing safety, speed, and solutions.”

As British businesses continue to grapple with post-Brexit trading challenges, Baxter Freight is expanding its team of Account Managers to provide dedicated support and consultancy, enabling businesses to regain confidence in trading with Europe.
