Importing Goods Via Sea Freight from Bangalore

Barrington Freight is able to offer UK importers professional services for sea freight shipments from the city of Bangalore to the British Isles. Located in the central part of southern India, Bangalore has no seaport of its own but there are cost-effective options for firms that wish to import from there without having to go to the expense of arranging air freight.

In fact, Bangalore Port (INBLR), known locally as Bengaluru Port or Bengalooru Port, is a dry port where containerised shipments are handled. The city’s facility allows goods to be sent to seaports after passing through their customs checks inland. Typically, Chennai, facing the Bay of Bengal, is chosen as the location where goods can continue their onward journey to the UK by sea.

As such, container shipments will arrive by either rail or road freight operators in southern India and will be held in customs bonded warehouses until they can be transferred onto ocean-going vessels heading West. In addition to its convenient connections to Chennai Port, Bangalore Port enjoys strong communications with Mumbai, Kerala state and Mysuru (Mysore) via road and rail. 

As such, there are multiple options available to British importers who have suppliers in and around Bangalore. Choosing the most cost-effective route without delaying the transit of imports takes local know-how, however. It is in this regard that Barrington Freight’s operations team can be so effective whether you have a single pallet of goods to import or several containers.

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.

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 :)
