How We Work

For “BEST” routings and cost savings, always contact us “BEFORE” tendering freight to overseas partners.

One local call to us gets you hands-on service from one of the world’s biggest freight networks.

No matter where in the world your consignment originates or is headed, we provide the local expertise needed to expedite fast and efficient delivery to final destination.

We are the Canadian partner of a world-wide partnership of independent freight specialists, dedicated to working together to provide unmatched levels of service.

Like us, all our partners own and manage their businesses. Like us, their success is dependent on their local experience and expertise and their ability to deliver service excellence. Like us, they had to prove themselves before they were accepted as a member of the Global Freight Group.

No multi-national can match our commitment, our local knowledge or our global know-how.

Whether you are shipping one small carton of samples, full ocean containers, need help with major projects or freighter charters, RGL has the experience and connections that allow for seamless shipping and customs clearances anywhere in the world.
