ECD and Skytrader offer 30 years of joint experience and for the first time, funeral directors can benefit from the additional expertise of a specialist cargo service provider when dealing with repatriation.
Both companies have previously worked with funeral directors internationally to provide an expert service. Detailed knowledge of import/export procedures, international legalities and the logistics of the air-transportation of the deceased often across long distances, all need to be taken into account.
As a result of this joint venture, ECD-Skytrader now has offices located throughout the UK, US, the Caribbean, Africa and throughout Europe.
ECD managing director, James Kindleysides said: “Our network of overseas partners and the comprehensive administrative support in the UK and the US provides funeral directors with a reliable and experienced partner to handle international repatriation of human remains, across any global borders and airspace.”
