Welcome to Barrington Freight, the UK’s leading freight forwarders across the globe…and back again. In recent years, air travel has increased exponentially and as a result, so too has air freight.

We’ve been providing air freight forwarding for business and commercial cargo from the UK to Japan for a number of years and with so many happy customers to prove it, we’ll be doing so for a number of years to come too.

We’re here for you at all times to help arrange every inch of your international air freight shipping to Japan from the United Kingdom.
When it comes to Japan, having local knowledge and a great deal of experience will always make the process of air freight much smoother. The fact that Japan is an island country located in the Pacific Ocean means it can be approached via water or flight and nowadays, thanks to the advancements in air travel, air freight is the chosen method of shipping cargo; considered to be faster and much more convenient. In Japan, the fact that big cities such as Tokyo and Osaka have more than one airport, also make things much easier. Add to this the fact that nearly all major airlines and airports now offer flights to Japan, thanks in part to their own two leading airlines Japan Airlines (JAL) and All Nippon Airways (ANA) and it’s easy to see just why we offer international air freight to Japan. Japan, as previously mentioned, has a number of international airports such as Tokyo’s Narita Airport (NRT), Osaka’s Kansai Airport (KIX), Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) and Nagoya’s Central Japan Airport (NGO). Japan also happens to have the world’s third largest economy, just behind the US and China.
With a whopping 5713 miles distance between Japan and the UK, Barrington Freight’s air freight services are the perfect choice for those with urgent cargo. Whether you have full container loads, part container loads or simply a document of great importance, Barrington Freight can offer you a reliable, secure and easy to use service for your commercial shipping needs. So what sets us apart from other freight forwarding companies in the UK?
Well, the fact that we offer a dedicated freight manager to deal with your entire consignment export, offering you a point of contact throughout the entire journey from beginning to end is a huge benefit to both ourselves and our clients. We find this offers peace of mind along with a great deal of continuity throughout the whole process.
One stumbling block for a number of clients, we find, happens to be customs clearance. Organising the relevant paperwork and customs documentation can often feel like a huge headache. Luckily for clients of Barrington Freight however, we have a number of trained staff who’ll be available to answer any questions and take you through all the necessary paperwork, every step of the way. From insurance to duties, we’ve got the knowledge needed to ensure your international air freight shipment sails smoothly. Should you need door to door deliveries when in Japan, while we aren’t able to provide that service ourselves, we do have contacts whom we’re able to liaise with to arrange customs clearance, subsequently aiding a prompt delivery upon reaching Japanese soil.
You may be surprised to learn that Japan consists of over 6,800 islands of which there are four main islands known as Honshu, Shikoku, Hokkaido and Kyushu. These make up 97% of Japan’s entire land area, serving Tokyo, otherwise known as the largest metropolitan area in the world.
First time we have used Barrington. We had a minor problem (which wasn't Barrington's fault) that was cleared without panic. Good service, fair price - we will use again Halmstad, Sweden.
We ship large heavy metal screens on pallets to various locations in Europe and further afield. We have always had great service from Barrington Freight right from the initial quotes and customer service through to safe, on time deliveries and keeping us informed throughout the process.
Great service. Even after confirming the collection at 2pm it arrived in Germany the next morning. One happy end user
The chipper arrived first thing this morning exactly on time as arranged. I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service. I will definitely call on you again if I need anything shifted!
Excellent freight service which got us out of a tight corner when we needed some goods from Switzerland in a hurry. Special thanks to Simon for being right on top of everything.
Simon, thank you for taking care of our shipment - we appreciate your efforts and professional attitude.
