Importing from Florida to the UK

At Barrington Freight, we help British importers all over the country to benefit from trading with Florida. It is worth noting when importing from Florida that the state is the fourth-largest in the whole United States in terms of its economy. These days, the gross product of the southern state frequently tops a trillion US dollars. What’s more, being on the East Coast of the US and a place where many British people visit each year, Florida is ideally located for trade with Europe and geared up towards exports to the UK.

Although much of what Florida’s booming economy offers is made up of services, there are a considerable number of manufacturing companies based in the state. Florida is well-known for its aerospace industry, for example, as well as for product manufacturing in the healthcare sector, among others. Consequently, British firms can often find the supply of components, assemblies and finished goods they need from Florida-based firms. However, the logistical side of getting goods from the US to the UK can needlessly put some British firms off. Why forego importing from Florida when Barrington Freight’s expertise in this area can be called upon. Let us take care of your Florida imports for you.

Importing from Florida (and the other way too)

After all, at Barrington Freight, we have a wealth of local know-how to share with British importers. Although we deal with local logistical firms and road haulage operators in the major cities of Florida – such as Tampa, Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville, for example – we are also well-versed in what it takes to arrange consignment from a less well-known place. So, if your supplier happens to have their production facility or warehouse in Tallahassee, Gainesville, Fort Myers or Sebring, for instance, then we can still provide you with a first-class importation service.

Why Choose Us to Help With Imports from Florida?

By combining our customs clearance work with our freight forwarding know-how, Barrington Freight provides a complete solution to British importers with suppliers in Florida. Our expertise and professionalism are second to none, so please email or phone our operations team to find out how competitive we can be when arranging imports from Florida.

Clear Customs Rapidly With Florida Imports

Because we have the necessary licences to arrange imports to the UK from Florida, we can ensure your goods pass through Florida unhindered by customs officials. Typically, commercial goods will pass onto ocean-going vessels via the state’s largest container port at Tampa Bay. However, if it makes more sense to use Port Manatee, Port Miami or JAXPORT in Jacksonville, then we will do so. There again, it can also sometimes make sense to transport goods by road to large ports outside of Florida, such as Savannah or Charleston.

Whichever port is chosen for shipping your imports from Florida to the UK, Barrington Freight can also ensure your importation declarations are prepared for you, if you wish. This can be handy if you do not import frequently and don’t have your own customs clearance operations in-house, for example.

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