UCARGO announced as Experience UK’s Freight and Logistics Partner

Experience UK, the premier Great British trade body which represents UK companies which supplies to global visitor destinations, is thrilled to enter a 12-month partnership with freight forwarding and logistics firm, UCARGO.

UCARGO will now work hand in hand with Experience UK as Freight and Logistics Partner. Headquartered in London and offices all over the world, UCARGO is an international freight forwarder which combines a global network with knowledge, experience and personality to deliver a full-scale event, entertainment and amusement logistics service. The award-winning company has a firm understanding of the sector Experience UK serves, and the needs and requirements of members when shipping cargo both domestically and internationally.

UCARGO has a wealth of experience in shipping by air, road and sea -having successfully transported cargo to Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, China and the USA. The firm works on the tight timelines of the entertainment and attraction sector. UCARGO has experience shipping a variety of delicate cargo, including event & staging equipment and huge carnival rides, which have been seen at the likes of the UK’s flagship festive event, Winter Wonderland.

Tony Kennedy, Founder & Partner of UCARGO explains: “For us, it is important that your cargo remains safe, that it is reliably moved and that no matter the complexity of the transport; the integrity of the cargo is being looked after during all times and moves around the world with ease and without hold up. Our team is here to make this happen. We have a head office based outside London, plus offices and agents linked globally for a well-connected comprehensive service in the Events, Entertainment and Amusement Industries.”

Over the past few years, Experience UK and UCARGO have established and strengthened a great working relationship. The UCARGO team have joined Experience UK delegations at flagship international tradeshows, including the Saudi Entertainment and Amusement Expo (Riyadh 2021/2022) and IAAPA Expo Europe (Barcelona 2021). Furthermore, UCARGO will exhibit on the Experience UK’s experiential pavilion at IAAPA Expo Europe, taking place in London 2022. Attending Experience UK at events has allowed UCARGO to build rapport with many UK companies, with the partnership enhancing Experience UK’s membership offering by instilling trust in a reputable shipping and logistics firm.

Ian Clappison, Chief Executive Officer of Experience UK added: “Experience UK looks forward to working closely with Tony and wider UCARGO team over the next year. UCARGO have proved themselves to be world-class freight and logistics player for the visitor experience sector, and we hope that through the partnership, we see more UK companies choose to use UCARGO as part of their shipping process.”
