Business at cross-channel and European freight forwarder France Line International Transport remains buoyant, despite the frustrating, ongoing uncertainty over Brexit – an uncertainty that is unquestionably now harming UK competitiveness, says managing director Marie Boyer. Healthy trading figures along with ongoing development and growth of new services contributed to France Line being voted Best European Road Freight Specialist 2019 and Recognised Leaders in Specialist Cross-Channel Freight Services 2019 at the SME News 2019 Transport Awards. A recognition of France Line’s diligence and hard work.
If you ask companies that export whether they regret it, you will rarely hear any negativity. There is a very good reason for that; exporting helps the bottom line as well as the top line, often more easily than with home sales. This would be obvious if you had a very limited market opportunity because of highly specialised products or services, but it also applies to far more competitive market places. British products have a justifiable reputation for quality, design and innovation and can hold their place across the world.
