Amco Services (International) Limited
Amco Services (International) Limited are a Made in the Midlands Gold Member
Founded in 1983, AMCO Services (International) Limited has provided reliable, economic logistics services across a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors for almost 30 years. Our highly experienced team also specialises in the supply of high-quality sequencing and logistics services to the defence, automotive, aerospace and FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) industries. These industries demand extremely high levels of service; accuracy, precision and consistency are vital to their operations. AMCO has developed sophisticated and robust systems in order to satisfy our clients demands and to deliver a full, integrated range of services to the highest standards possible.
AMCO aims to provide reliable, fast logistics services with fixed costs. We achieve this through the use of ISO standard work processes, investment in technology and the employment of reliable distribution and warehousing systems.
The company has developed and established a proven reputation for adding value to our clients’ businesses, whilst remaining highly competitive by comparison with other recognised national and international suppliers.
Our links with the automotive industry were forged early in our history. AMCO Services (Motorsport) was incorporated in 1983, and was originally a specialist Shipping and Freight Agency for the Motorsport Industry. Its sister company AMCO Services (UK) Limited, was formed to handle all other general freight.
As the two companies grew, it became evident that there were increasing levels of ‘cross-over’ between the two businesses and in order to streamline and further improve services to our customers, they consolidated to form AMCO Services (International) Ltd.
AMCO strives to retain its position at the forefront of logistics provision by the incorporation of the latest developments in technology and by the use of new developments in logistics systems. The company continually reviews its processes in order to achieve maximum efficiency for its logistics systems. This is particularly critical for ‘process driven’ sectors such as defence, automotive and aerospace.
As we look to the future, bringing ongoing efficiencies into supply chains and offering fully integrated services will be key aims for AMCO, as will the further extension of our customer facing online systems, geo-fencing technology and detailed tracking systems, delivering even greater levels of information, control and efficiency to our customers.
AMCO has a clearly defined strategic plan for growth and diversification both organically and through acquisition.
From our UK logistic operating centres linked to warehouses, Amco ensures a same day or 24hr delivery service across the UK. Whatever your business sector, products, and required transport capacity, you can count on us to provide the logistic service you require.
Moving goods in and around the UK is in itself a simple task, but to ensure Amco provide class leading service considerable investment has been made in human and technological resources.
Where speed, efficiency and reliability is paramount and deadlines are being pushed to the limits, AMCO are dedicated to giving you a direct and cost effective solution.
Our Eastern European logistics and warehousing hub in Romania has 20,000 sq ft of bonded warehouse and is situated in Pitesti, South Bucharest and in close proximity to the Romanian Ford and Renault car plants.
Operating as a stand-alone warehouse facility, our own vehicle fleet, a bonded warehouse, and with an expert freight forwarding team, this hub offers strong links across Europe and with preferred partners helps us to extend our reach and further develop relationships across Europe.
Air Freight is often the fastest method of transport of delivery of cargo and consignments and is certainly key in time critical logistics. Global markets and trade dictate the need to have an Air Freight and logistics partner to literally ‘take the load’. Air Freight is best suited for urgent consignments which have a strict deadline and are unsuitable for land, post or sea freight.
Amco offer choice and capacity as an Air freight partner offering pallet rates for quarter, half and full pallets on both overnight and next day economy services. Amco can provide direct and indirect flight options to suit timescales and budgets. Air Freight usually becomes equitable with consignments over 45 chargeable kilos. See below
Sending freight by sea is not an ideal shipping solution if speed of transit is a priority. If you need to get your goods to their destination as quickly as possible then you should consider using Air Freight services.
