Benbeck Forwarding Ltd.


Our History

Benbeck Forwarding was founded in 1991 by David Saville, who brought with him a wealth of experience in the Portuguese market. Over the next few years Benbeck Forwarding rapidly became the major carrier between the north of England and Portugal.
Among other general cargo, in the early years, a large part of regular traffic was hanging garments. As specialists in hanging garments, Benbeck Forwarding’s markets expanded to Spain and France as well as China and the Far East.
