Providing ocean freight for over 180 years

Beginning as brokers for coal shipments in 1842, our Cardiff office’s roots are deep in the ocean freight process. The world of trade has evolved since then, with shipping containers only becoming a concept in 1956, but our core values of service, reliability, and trusted partnerships have all stood the test of time. 

Today, we provide a full suite of options to suit your cargo, budget, and timeframe. From containerised (FCL & LCL) cargoes to specialist projects, bulk and break-bulk, RoRo, and perishable cargo, we are here to keep your goods moving.

Experts in industrial shipping

Cory Brothers Cardiff has a proven track record in metal commodities and machinery, working with miners, manufacturers, and end users throughout our 180 years of serving the Welsh industry.

Whether it’s selecting the right type of container unit for the job, understanding the nuances of origin and preferential origin in manufacturing, or coordinating project logistics – Cory Brothers Cardiff has seen and done it all for the Welsh industrial sector.

Customs clearance specialists

Adapting with the changing tides of customs, our specialists at Cory Brothers Cardiff are used to managing customs processes across a range of scenarios. Our location gives us exposure to a range of regimes, from trade with Northern Ireland and the EU through the Republic of Ireland, through to trade with the US and Africa.

Whether the goods you are moving are foodstuffs, hazardous, temperature-controlled, perishables, project cargoes, pharmaceuticals, health-certified, or general cargo, we’ll keep it moving through the border in a timely and compliant manner.

Experts in excise, origin, and destination variables

Customs clearance is not the same for every shipment, even if the product is the same. For every commodity code, there are rules surrounding origin, whether or not origin and preferential origin are the same, and different requirements when shipping to specific parts of the world. 

It’s important for your agent to understand these nuances, and this is where Cory Brothers Cardiff excels.

Working with excise, industrial, and food products coming in and out of the UK and Ireland, our specialists are used to navigating the delicate details that keep your trade compliant.
