The Power of Cash!

January 2018

Following the announcement in our last newsletter, of 60 day Credit Terms, we received an unexpected amount of enquires on this topic.
EF UK Commercial Director, Mark Hall commented “The first question we are generally asked is what our rates are, and some of the potential customers thought it was a catch, in that they had to give us all their business, which is simply not the case.
We know there are other companies who are stronger than us on some routes when it comes to rates and vice versa. If a company wants to use us for one route then that is fine, we can still provide them a 60 day credit facility (subject to approval)”
Hall stressed that this facility is ONLY available to UK based customers, if you would like to know more about this product and see if your company qualifies, please email using the subject line 60 days credit or call Mark Hall on 0779 3750237.

eCommerce Update

January 2018

It’s been 3 months since we opened our first dedicated eCommerce warehouse. 
The results have been staggering. “our growth line mirrors a Bitcoin graph!” joked EF UK Commercial Director, Mark Hall.
He continued, “The fulfilment side of the business has been very interesting, in that we have had a number of enquiries from companies based outside EU, who were not aware of the VAT rules regarding eCommerce. We have been able to guide and assist them to be compliant, which has really strengthened the relationships bringing some referral work through that”
