We have been shipping along these routes for many years, so we know how to smooth the process for you. In addition, when you use our air freight services to or from China, we have the local knowledge needed to ensure your cargo is handled correctly and delivered quickly.

Ship to China With An Experienced Freight Forwarder

Airports in China comprise international and domestic airports, which means that there can be complexities when shipping unique to the country. There are also airports with paved runways, and those without that can cause further required considerations for your shipment. Over the last two decades, China’s Civil Aviation industry has invested in development to improve domestic and international air transportation substantially. Airfreight forwarding is an essential service, and thus transportation methods are advanced and efficient.

There are currently (2021) 235 commercial airports and continually expanding. Across China, Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG), Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA), and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) are considered the major airports where cargo can be shipped to and from with ease.

For our Air Freight service from China to the UK, we utilise the top airlines worldwide, including Delta, Turkish Airlines, China Southern, and Lufthansa, ensuring your shipments are handled with utmost care and efficiency.


UK’s leading air freight services to China

We know well that shipments come in all shapes and sizes, and we also understand that it’s not always possible for you to deliver your cargo to us for transport. That’s why as part of working with Barrington Freight, we offer collecting from your premises and delivering to your final destination point – a true end to end service.

If your collection and delivery points do not have the loading and unloading equipment, we can also provide that and get your shipment on its way. We go out of our way to ensure you receive the very best service possible when using our international air freight services to China. As previously mentioned, we also offer cargo tracking. This allows you to keep track of your shipment, whether it’s in the UK or China and everywhere in between, thanks to the reputable airlines and Chinese agents we partner with. We believe in providing transparent delivery end-to-end whether you’re sending urgent air freight forwarding to China or importing.

Sending cargo Internationally

If you’re new to international air freight shipping, then you may not be aware of customs requirements on both ends of the journey. As the UK is no longer in the EU, rules may have changed for your goods to and from China, and more paperwork is required.

Failing to fulfil your obligations will result in delays and possibly holding goods that cost time and money. While yet more paperwork may sound daunting, rest assured our customs agents have you covered. Our team will advise you on what needs to be done for each country, so nothing is overlooked. With our help, your clearance through customs will be a breeze.

What do I need to do ahead of shipping?

If you intend to send palletised air cargo to China, it’s vital your freight is prepared correctly. It’s also important to remember that your pallet will likely be loaded and subsequently unloaded on multiple occasions unless you are filling the entire plane and need to be prepared to withstand such movement. It’s also worth noting that your pallet may become exposed to environmental pressures such as transport vibrations and adverse weather. As such, we always advise that you strap pallets securely to the base and, where possible, use corner supports. We understand that keeping costs down is often imperative, so cutting down on materials can help. Shrinkwrap, however, is not an area to cut back as a generous amount will create a more secure pallet. Also, check your destination country’s regulations for wooden pallets – some countries will not permit them unless they have a fumigation certificate. If in doubt about any of your shipping requirements, contact us for advice.

Needed Help getting an odd piece of machinery from the EU and got all the help I needed.
Simon Pool from Barrington freight was very helpful and door to door service to S.Korea was excellent, pick up and delivery services on time. I highly recommend Barrington Freight for air cargo services. Thank you Simon and the team! Kay
The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.
Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.
Working with Barrington was brilliant. They really looked out for us, tackling our tough shipping/freight requirements keeping us informed at every stage of the process. Thank you
kept up to date with all progress, i know they had a particularly troubling time with import customs messing up paperwork but sorted all that out for me. highly reccomend will use again
Excellent company, very efficient and great communication. Competitive , quick quotes!
We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)
Joshua at Barrington Freight is friendly and patient. Their service hassle-free and affordable compared to other freight forwarders.
