Gibraltar

It may be small, but it is an important outpost, continually contested with Spain as to its sovereignty.

Service Information

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. Densely populated, it has an area of 2.6 square miles and is home to more than 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities. To the north, it borders the Province of Cadiz in Andalusia, Spain. A popular location for British holiday makers, considering the size of its territory, the volume of exports to Gibraltar is relatively high, and this continues throughout the year.

Our road freight service to Gibraltar

Considering the size of this outpost, there is a surprising amount of freight of all kinds being sent to Gibraltar.

Considering the size and narrowness of many of the roads in Gibraltar, a large proportion of deliveries are made on small vehicles equipped with small cranes, and often fork lift truck hire needs providing, charged by the hour.

A few years ago we transported the island’s New Year firework display, ironically only to watch our efforts go up in smoke some hours after arrival!

Key tip

Important to note, the commodity and the commercial invoice is required at the time of booking, and should the final delivery point be the Ministry of Defence, this information is also required.

And, if you are new at shipping to Gibraltar and you’ve not applied for a EORI number, you need to complete an application to obtain one. Our team will be pleased to advise the procedures, but the ‘official’ information can be found at the HMRC website. Saying that, I’d expect that with the last few years of turmoil with Brexit, most companies have now been ‘force-fed’ an EORI number!

Unstinting service

Dear Phil, The enclosed gift comes with a (virtual) handshake and sincere thanks for the support that Ital Logistics has shown us over the years that your company has serviced our freight forwarding needs. You undoubtedly have a very professional team, who are a credit to you and your company. It is due to them that we have experienced many successful consignments, delivered safely, on time and at value-for-money costs.

Because of your company’s unstinting service, we have in turn grown our own business during the time of our association. It is due to the above that we feel extremely grateful and hope that you will accept the enclosed with our heartfelt good wishes for the future. Congratulations on your first 10 years!

Simon Fletcher Managing Director, Glass Scribe International LTD.
