Client: Mark Richards

Posted: Tuesday 2nd June

Mark Richards is regarded as one of the UK’s finest portrait sculptors. Following art school in London, an apprenticeship to architectural sculptor A.J Ayres and, from 1991-94, as Senior Sculptor at Madame Tussauds, Richard now works out of studios in Herefordshire and London, where his portrait sculpture continues a tradition of exquisite detail in likeness and finish.

The problem:

Mark is a regular customer of ours and he came to us when he had a shipment ready to send to Norway. Not only did he need this packing but he also had a piece that he had repaired and needed sending back to Norway which had originally been shipped in under temporary import.

We packed his sculpture and organised all the documentation needed to ensure the repaired freight was released from its temporary import bond and delivered without any duty charges.

The solution:

We packed his sculpture and organised all the documentation needed to ensure the repaired freight was released from its temporary import bond and delivered without any duty charges. Shipment was moved to Norway and delivered to the customer successfully.

What the customer has to say:

“I make bronze sculptures which are shipped to customers and venues in the UK and around the world. Many of these works are one offs and I place a lot of trust in my shipping Company to deliver them safely and on time. The team at Global Freight make it all seem easy. Reliable and competitively priced, they deal with my complicated demands in an efficient and straightforward manner”.
