Calibre Routex Group meet a variety of demands and requests from our customers by providing them with comprehensive solutions from road to sea and air to rail, using our expertise, equipment, and worldwide network of long standing trusted agents. We have considerable experience in handling multimodal shipments where different methods and modes of transport are required.
An outstanding example of our multimodal capacity is a recent consignment that required us to move freight via road from Austria to London, followed by air from London to Hong Kong, followed by sea from Hong Kong to Macau.
We specialise in finding alternative solutions which are cost effective whilst maintaining the highest performance possible.

Our transport services include full load and part load road services including timed deliveries to and from Europe.
Our warehousing and storage facilities are located adjacent to the M25 London orbital motorway providing us with excellent transport links.

We have also designed and built a unique hybrid truck capable of carrying either 24 Euro Pallets or by using internal hydraulic ramps and all round air suspension we can load 2 prestige cars.

Ocean, Sea & Air Freight Shipping
Calibre Routex Group operate worldwide freight movements on a daily basis via both air and sea services.
Our deep sea operations offer LCL and FCL services for both exports and imports. Through our trusted network of agents we are ideally positioned to handle your shipment whatever the requirement.
Whilst we regard ourselves as a company able to offer services that are truly worldwide we consider our speciality markets to be the USA, Far East, Indian sub-continent and South America.
Our air freight operations run in tandem with our sea freight operations and we are perfectly placed to handle any air shipments. By sheer definition airfreight requires an infrastructure that is fast moving and cost sensitive.
We also utilise the sea-air or air-sea services where appropriate; this has the benefit of being faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight.
