Our head office in Leicestershire works in close co-operation with our sites in Hungary and the Czech-Republic

CLA was founded in 2005 with the purpose of providing dedicated Full Trailer solutions for time-sensitive shipments between the UK and Central Europe. With deep ties to the automotive industry high volume, reliability and flexible service have been core elements from the beginning.
Since 2005 CLA has expanded by opening more European offices, in the Czech Republic and Hungary, and offering more services.
Dedicated FTL services now includes all of Europe; and road-freight services now include Express Van Shipments, Part Load consolidation (LTL) and Groupage, both internationally and domestically, as well as sea and air-freight.
We have also opened warehousing operations in both the UK and the Czech Republic, adding storage and distribution to client benefits of working with CLA
Brexit offered many challenges and concern to many of our clients as well as everyone in the industry involved in movement of goods between the UK and the European Union. CLA responded by creating a customs department and developing expertise in the new territory of this era, making the transition as seamless as possible for our clients by taking care of all customs requirements as well as transport for the import/export of goods

AFP Services have been working with CLA on freight and customs services for the last few years and it’s safe to say we fully recommend their services. Most recently we worked together on a 16-truck project, and the service was second to none. Communication was excellent, and as we work with multiple different clients and types of goods, it is essential the freight partner we work with understands the importance of every single movement. CLA exceeded our expectations, and we will continue to work with them long into the future.
There is no doubt that without the knowledge and help of CLA, we would not have been one of the only International groupage operators to continue running our services during January 2021 after Brexit became a reality. The patience and understanding CLA afforded CS Ellis in both the months leading up to Brexit and the implementation of the seismic procedural changes made this happen and has forged a strong relationship between our companies and, arguably as important, the staff who make it happen. Without this approach and working relationship between our two companies,the services delivered to our customers would have suffered immeasurably and my job would have been considerably more challenging.
