Barrington Freight is the ideal company to turn to when arranging imports to the UK from Alabama. We have a raft of experience to draw upon for many classes of imported goods from the state and other nearby ones in the USA, such as Mississippi, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, all of which border it. As British importing firms may already be aware, the major production centres in Alabama include Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Montgomery as well as Huntsville in the north. However, please note that our skilled and knowledgeable operations team can handle the logistics involved with imports from any part of the state, including less well-known places, such as Winfield or Fort Payne, for instance.

Indeed, Barrington freight has a great deal of know-how to share when arranging shipments via Alabama’s principal port city of Mobile. Exported goods from the United States pass through Mobile Bay into the Gulf of Mexico all the time and will often make direct transit to British waters over the North Atlantic. Whether or not your import is urgent, we will do everything that is needed to ensure your goods are handled with due diligence both before they are loaded onto ocean-going vessels and afterwards.

Importing from Alabama (and the other way too)

Much of rural Alabama has an economy that has been historically based on farming, notably cotton, peanuts and soybeans. However, it also has a thriving manufacturing sector. Hyundai, Honda, Mercedes and Toyota all have significant production plants in the state, for example. Steel and rubber products, especially tyres, are made in Alabama among many other classes of products. As such, the state is one that British importers will frequently seek trading arrangements with suppliers that have a proven track record.

Why Choose Barrington Freight When Importing from Alabama?

As a member of the British International Freight Association, Barrington Freight can guarantee all of its clients’ high-quality services when importing from Alabama to the UK. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of your shipment and make the necessary arrangements for your goods to be forwarded to you directly as soon as they have arrived in the country and passed their customs inspection. Call our operations team today to see what else we can do to help.

Customs Clearance Services for Alabama Imports

Any business based in the UK that wishes to import from suppliers in Alabama will need an import license and to be registered with the customs notification system, having been issued with an EORI number. All goods imported from the US require customs declarations, too. These have to be made for goods from Alabama just as they would be for any other state. The problem many smaller firms – and some larger ones, too – face is that they do not have the in-house know-how to deal with these declarations. However, we can take care of your shipments from Alabama to the UK and deal with the necessary paperwork, duty declarations, commodity coding and everything else. As freight forwarders, we keep our customs clearance work under one roof, thereby offering you an economy of scale.

We are friendly, easy to work with, honest and we do not charge the earth.

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.

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 :)
