Founded in 1994 by Attorney Richard “Stone” Bagano Pooten and NHS Staff Nurse (retired) and Registered Care Home Proprietor Conchita Balagtey Pooten, a husband and wife team “dynamic duo”. Pooten Forwarding International Ltd (“PFI”) has grown to become one of the largest Filipino freight forwarders in the UK.
PFI became a registered company in 2006. It is listed in the U.K. Companies Register. PFI has its U.K headquarters and warehouse in London, England and Philippine distribution warehouse (Odani Logistics) in Tarlac, Philippines. It also has Law offices in Manila and Baguio City, Philippines.
PFI collects and delivers customers’ personal effects (contained inside cargo boxes “balikbayan boxes”) throughout the U.K. and the Philippines. Whether our customers are family, friends, retirees, students or charities, PFI has helped connect people, throughout the U.K and the Philippines, each box at a time.
We are the first UK based Filipino forwarding company to be affiliated with the British International Freight Association (‘BIFA’) and regularly maintains our membership.
