How To Send Liquids by Courier
The movement of liquids has often been a confusing issue to tackle in the courier world. Moving liquids safely, securely and without spilling a drop has long been something that couriers have struggled with. As a result, not many couriers have been able to provide the safe and efficient transportation of liquids, which can be a problem for many clients. Here at Speedy Freight, our drivers are carefully trained in the transportation of liquids of almost any volume or size. With the correct training and fleet, the management and logistics involving liquids can be undertaken easily to ensure the most efficient and safe movement of your consignments.


Who Needs to Move Liquids?  


Many industries need to move liquids and rely on couriers to transport their liquid consignments, and often urgently.


Medical Industry 


The medical sector often needs to move biohazardous liquids, including the urgent transportation of blood samples, as well as liquid medicines and treatments.


Construction Industry 


The construction industry often requires the movement of liquids used commonly in construction and even interior decoration, such as paints, sprays, mists, aerosols pastes, cement, and other building materials. 


Events & Hospitality Industry 


From refreshments for festivals and restaurants, and to waste management, the events and hospitality sectors often requires the regular movement of liquids. 


Manufacturing Industry 


Whether you’re a beverage manufacturer or simply rely on liquid ingredients to be at your manufacturing plant when you need them. 


Food and Beverage Sector 


Whether you’re operating in food and beverage manufacturing, or you’re a wholesale supplier of beverages from soft drinks to spirits, Speedy Freight can move liquids for all companies operating under the food and beverage sector. 


Which Courier Can Carry Liquids? 


Speedy Freight is an experienced courier that can handle liquid consignments.  

From beverages for the events and hospitality industries, to liquid ingredients for the manufacturing industry, and even vital life-saving transport of blood samples, we can move them. 

To ship liquids with Speedy Freight, all you need to do is contact us, tell us about the type of liquids you need moving and we’ll get them where they need to go. All our same day courier services are dedicated, which means we never co-load with other goods, to ensure safety during transport. 

For hazardous liquids, such as biomedical waste, we also offer ADR transport solutions. For beverages that need to remain at a chilled temperature, we have temperature-controlled solutions. 


How To Ship Liquids 


There are many restrictions as to what liquids you can send by post, so opting for a specialised courier is your best choice. Not many couriers offer transport services for liquid consignments. 

When finding a courier to ship liquids, you first have to determine what types of liquid you need to move, and whether they’re hazardous or non-hazardous liquids. Hazardous liquids that fall under ADR regulations need to be transported with a licensed courier, such as Speedy Freight. If you’re transporting restricted or flammable liquids, you’ll also want to ensure that your courier is experienced with these types of goods. 

No matter what type of liquids you’re moving, you’ll want an experienced courier with the right vehicles and trained drivers to ensure your liquid consignments get to their destination safely. 

Speedy Freight’s dedicated courier service means we never co-load, which is a crucial consideration when transporting liquids. All you need to do to send liquids by courier is fill out Speedy Freight’s consultation form and we’ll take it from there.
