Johnson Partners marks ten years with international project
Teesside-based Johnson Partners has completed one of its largest international assignments as it marks its tenth anniversary.
The freight forwarder completed the assignment for heavy equipment dealer Finning, which included handling and shipping two generators, each weighing 60 tonnes, and bringing in specialist containers from Europe and engines that had been sourced in the US for final assembly in the West Midlands, before shipping to China via Felixstowe.
Bernie Johnson, managing director of Johnson Partners, said: "This was the second shipment we have undertaken for the client on this scale and our selection is testament to the reputation that we have built up over the last ten years for coordinating projects and handling heavy, complex loads."
The company has grown 50 per cent over the last three years, establishing an international network of agents and providing a door to door service globally.
Paul Johnson, director at Johnson Partners, added: "We know our market better than ever and are committed to providing something different over our larger competitors.
"By looking after all their shipping and forwarding requirements, we allow clients to focus on their core business.
"UK exports and manufacturing output are both predicted to continue to grow and with our reputation established oversees we’re well placed to grow big business."
