United Kingdom

The company was established by Colin van Roon in 1988 as a small family-run freight forwarder specializing in the importation by ocean freight of Abaca Fiber from the Philippines, which is used in the production of tea-bags and coffee filter papers.

The company has been able to handle Abaca from all Philippine and Ecuadorian Abaca fiber and pulp producers, on behalf of all Abaca-based specialty paper mills in the UK, Europe and USA. Whilst continuing to handle the initial import business, recent expansion now includes ocean export and import and export air freight, principally for the UK specialist paper mills. This involvement in specialist paper materials has enabled the company to handle X-Trades ocean shipping for most of our paper based client.

Additionally, it undertakes Supply Chain Management on behalf of UK Trading companies, from the placement of their purchase orders, through to delivery to their end customers in the UK. Most of the supply countries are based in S E Asia and China.

In early 2008, Mr. van Roon sold a controlling interest to Mr. Michael Raeuber and his family representing the Royal Cargo Group of Companies and is now called RC Combined Logistics Ltd.
