Meet Coot Freight Ltd.
From our team to yours, welcome.
Coot Freight Ltd. is a privately-owned international freight forwarding company offering professional transportation services to worldwide destinations by land, air, and sea.

The co-founders of Coot Freight Ltd. spent years working in the freight transportation industry, building their expertise by learning as much as possible through various freight forwarders and gaining hands-on, in-depth industry experience. The duo eventually grew tired of working for other companies and decided to take their knowledge to the next level and begin an entrepreneurial journey. Thus, Coot Freight Ltd. was born in 2011, starting out in a London office before quickly expanding to a second office in Rotterdam by 2016. Now, in 2020, Coot Freight is taking the freight forwarding industry by storm and carving out a leadership role in the Russian market.
Coot Freight Ltd. was founded on the idea of freight forwarding made simple, personable, flexible, and fast, and our mission is to be a one-stop-shop for freight and customs clearance requirements to Russia.

We also specialize in global multimodal shipments to and from the exciting country of Russia.


Fulica atra, is all-black, medium-sized water bird, member of the rail family Rallidae.


The Coot has a distinctive white beak and ‘shield’ above the beak which earns it the title ‘bald’. Coots are territorial, but sociable birds, often seen feeding together in flocks on ponds.
