“This was the first time I have imported anything, and it was less of a drama than I thought it would be because Platinum Freight walked me through the process. I had some technical difficulties which were readily resolved because Peter was on the other end of the phone and dealt with the issues. Peter was great to deal with, patient, flexible and professional. This is what differentiates Platinum Freight Management from cheaper companies.”
