Perishable Goods Logistics – Supply Chain Experts

Welcome to PML, a team of dedicated logistic specialists. We have been established as a company for 17 years and we effectively manage the supply chain of temperature sensitive goods.  

Working across both import and export, our logistics experts will transport your cargo door-to-door, with maximum efficiency. With our head-office and 64,000 sq. ft temperature controlled bonded warehouse strategically based in Heathrow, we are ideally located for the seamless movement of your perishable goods.

As a family-owned business, we regularly invest in technology and pride ourselves on building long-lasting relationships with our clients and partners.  We understand your business and the importance of your shipment, so rest assured, you can rely on us every step of the way.

Working with you, we will move your cargo, on time and on budget by air, by sea or by road.

Supply Chain Experts – By Air & Air Charter

Working with our dedicated overseas partners, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we will move your perishable goods via our trusted networks, to maximise your products’ shelf life.

Our in-house charter air freight service, avoids Brexit disruptions to sea port trade and offers a viable air alternative for importing goods that are temperature sensitive and require temperature controlled storage into the UK.

With shelf life averaging 21 days and under, we understand just how important it is to work at pace, avoiding any unnecessary delays. Using air freight trade lanes, goods will be checked by DEFRA inspectors at our facility and then pass through our Border Control Post before either being stored at our custom built temperature controlled warehouse in Spalding or continuing on their route to market.

Rest assured that our experienced air freight and air charter team will:

  • Support your customs clearance through our purpose built Border Control Post (BCP)
  • Real-time track your goods and fully monitor goods throughout their journey
  • Handle your goods through our 64,000 sq. ft temperature controlled bonded warehouse
  • Provide faster, time sensitive transfer
  • Use optimum air freight trade lanes
  • Provide exclusive full access and part charter services

We are confident that the introduction of our air charter division within PML will enable our customers to continue to benefit from access to the very best supply chain routes, with the company now offering additional specialist expertise in identifying the optimum air trade lanes to ensure a timely, seamless and methodically controlled transfer of cargo.


The PML team will always add value, be approachable and be accessible – resulting in complete peace of mind!

Supply Chain Experts – By Sea

Passion and knowledge is what sets the PML team apart from the competition, whichever PML expert you work with, you can be assured of a professional service.  

In sea freight especially, technology plays a pivotal role.  Working with Sensitech we use:

  • Temperature and data loggers
  • Real time tracking 
  • Temperature recording

This provides peace of mind that your shipment is the correct temperature, the entire way through the chain. Using this innovative technology in our containers, at any stage of the route, you can log-in and see, exactly where your consignment is and how it is being handled.

Supply Chain Experts – By Road

One in five trucks travelling across the UK carry food, so at PML we put all the necessary checks and correct paperwork in place, to ensure a smooth transit.

We are experts in handling customs clearance at all UK ports, including Dover and Portsmouth. We also have our own DEFRA/HMRC approved Border Control Post (BCP) and ERT bonded warehouse in Spalding, so that your goods arrive on time.

Our Border Control Post (BCP), enables a speedier movement of product delivering an extending shelf life of up to 48 hours.

Our facilities feature:

Purpose-built 10,000 sq. ft warehouse
Capacity to store 330 pallets
Dedicated inspection areas for customs and DEFRA

The Spalding location is ideally placed for freight traffic coming out of Dover and Southampton docks and the move to set up a BCP away from the ports represents a solution to the delays and excessive queues which impede the onward movement of freight. For a company that stakes its reputation on the time efficient transfer of perishable cargo, PML was unwilling to risk the further disruptions anticipated post Brexit and therefore joined forces with Fresh Linc – with whom we share a long-standing and trusted working relationship – to provide a viable alternative.

  • Pick and pack service
  • Custom clearance
  • Temperature controlled handling

Supply Chain Technology



The ability to fulfil a client’s brief and resolve any issues is of paramount importance to us, hence we regularly invest in technology to deliver a best in class service.

We understand the need to innovate, to be one step ahead of the competition and to offer a future perfect logistics solution. Taking on board what our customers value the most, we invest in the right equipment, including:

  • Vacuum cooler
  • Astrophysics X-ray machine
  • Pick and pack machine
  • Cargo Opening Roller Bed System
  • BRC accredited warehouse
  • Real-time tracking
  • Chilled and frozen warehouses

Vacuum Cooler

This technology allows us to meet tight delivery schedules and extend the shelf life of product. The cooler evaporates the slightest amount of heat from within the product and removes field heat from air and sea freight whilst maintaining freshness.

Astrophysics X-Ray Machine

This dual x-ray scanner enables us to undertake our own in-house security. All employees who use it are security trained. PML has a security team that undertakes weekly audits of all the processes and certifications required to ensure compliance with the Civil Aviation Authority.

Cargo Operating Roller Bed System

Allows us to offload ULDs directly from the truck, maintaining a speedy turn-around of product coming into our warehouse, ready for customer orders and distribution.

Pick and Pack Machinery

We are equipped to handle picking, labelling, flow wrapping and the  overwrapping of fresh produce, whilst working to tight deadlines. We operate 7 days a week, with flexible shift patterns, all under BRC food certification.

BRC Accredited Warehouse

Our 40.000 sq-ft. warehouse is made up of segregated chambers including chilled, frozen, blast cooling and ambient product, all under separate BRC certification (which includes Global Storage and Distribution and Global Standard for Food Safety).
