Worldwide Book Services purchased Express Book Freight in 2008 and the last decade has seen EBF grow and expand beyond all expectations. The sole focus of the business is two-fold: a service provider of the physical consolidation of books within our Elizabeth, NJ and London facility plus our expertise and complete knowhow of transatlantic logistics, TSA security, customs regulations and procedures.
EBF offers a book-consolidation service that covers the whole of Europe thanks to its long-standing relationships with numerous shipping and air lines.
As well as handling single US /UK and US/Europe shipments, EBF receive also multiple US publishers’ books at Elizabeth, NJ which are transported to our London facility and are combined with their book orders from the UK. The orders are duly assembled and palletised together and onforwarded to the end user in a seamless transaction. Our services reduces the freight expenditure of our clients considerably.
