Once an industrial powerhouse during the Industrial Revolution, Manchester has transformed into a modern urban centre. Situated in the northwest of England, the city played a pivotal role in the textile industry and boasts a rich industrial heritage. Today, Manchester is known for its vibrant music scene, thriving arts community, and world-renowned universities. The city's diverse neighborhoods, including the Northern Quarter and MediaCityUK, contribute to its eclectic and dynamic atmosphere.
As one of the UKs largest cities after London, Manchester enjoys a thriving economy and growing population. Once a city dependent on the textile industry, the economy is now, in fact, bigger than that of Wales or Northern Ireland. Centred primarily around manufacturing, with over 200 manufacturing firms, Manchester is a prime location for regularly receiving palletised shipments. The wholesale and retail trade also make up a large proportion of Manchesters competitive economy, requiring a large number of stock deliveries, often using pallets.
We remove the stress from sending large items across the country to different cities. Our team will remind and inform you of all the required paperwork, which typically include a Commercial Invoice / Pro Forma Invoice. P4D are dedicated to providing excellent customer service and will guide you through every step of the process.
Due to Brexit, as of January 2021, it is now required to declare additional information on your palletised goods as part of the new regulations. The main details you'll need to provide are a registered EORI number, Commodity Codes and Export Licenses for items that need it. See our FAQs below to find out more.
We recommend you to check that what you are shipping is safe and legal. Most items are accepted to send through the trusted couriers we use, except from illegal narcotics, weapons or live animals. Discover our prohibited items list for more information. Ready to proceed with your P4D booking?
