Sea Freight Imports From Cochin to the UK

At Barrington Freight, we have the professional know-how to help British importers who would like to have goods they have purchased from Indian suppliers loaded onto European-bound cargo ships via Cochin. The Port of Cochin (INCOK) is also referred to locally as Kochi Port and, whichever name is used, Barrington Freight’s operation team will be on hand to ensure that your goods get to the UK in the most cost-effective but speedy manner possible. Given that Cochin is the principal port in the southern Indian state of Kerala, frequent shipments of goods are possible to UK ports like Tilbury. If you’d like us to act on your behalf when importing to the UK via Cochin, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

The state of Kerala is well-known in the UK for agriculture and fisheries but it is also a hub for manufactured goods, too. As such, shipping from the port will often mean a wide variety of goods are possible to import. What’s more, the Port of Cochin also enjoys good land communications with Bangalore so it is an important trade hub – one that has been in constant use for centuries – for some of the more centrally located urban areas of southern India, too. Given that Cochin has one of the largest natural ports in the area and that it possesses no fewer than 16 berths and two wharves, it makes an excellent choice for British importation companies.

efficient imports with sea freight from cochin

If you are a British importer who has found suppliers in Cochin or the wider Kerala state and would like to make the necessary arrangements for shipping your purchases directly to the UK, then Barrington Freight is here to offer our expertise. We can arrange for your goods to be collected from your supplier and transferred to the Port of Cochin, if needed, for example. We will also prepare all of the necessary paperwork so that your shipment can pass through the port and be loaded onto an ocean-going vessel that is bound for the UK via the Suez Canal.

If you would like us to find a shipping method that offers exceptional value for money, then we can group your consignment with others that will be heading to the UK from Cochin. This way, you can share many of the costs associated with containerised shipments and save considerable sums. Doing so will not add a great deal of time to the expected delivery schedule in most cases. Our honest approach means that you will always be informed of the progress of your imports from Cochin.

customs clearances handled by experts for goods from cochin

As freight forwarders, we also offer highly skilled customs clearance work for our clients. If you have not completed your customs clearance declaration for your shipment from the Port of Cochin, then we can do so on your behalf. This means that the necessary checks HMRC will make on arrival will be conducted without any potential delays and your goods can continue their journey to your warehouse or stockroom unhindered.

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 :)
