Importing from Maine to the UK

Based in Essex, Barrington Freight is the ideal firm to turn to for professional help when importing from the US state of Maine. Situated on the Canadian border in the far Northeast of the US, Maine has a thriving manufacturing industry. In fact, its manufacturing output accounts for well over $6 billion in a typical year and manufacturing firms employ about eight per cent of the state’s workforce. As such, many UK firms want to buy goods that have been made in Maine but do not necessarily possess the in-house know-how to go about doing so successfully.

This is where our freight forwarding prowess can make such a big difference to British firms. Not only do we have the expertise in international logistics that is required for trans-Atlantic trade these days but we also have local knowledge in Maine, as well. As such, we can help with Maine imports to ensure they are not only delivered in a timely fashion but to keep logistical costs down, too. We deal with numerous road haulage firms in the state which can pick up your consignment and have it on its way to an East Coast container port without delay. What’s more, we do not just handle imported goods from Maine’s major cities, such as Portland, Augusta and Bangor. We also know our way around smaller places in the state like Caribou, close to the Canadian border, and Sanford, near the state line with Vermont.

Importing from maine (and the other way too)

Maine has direct access to the North Atlantic which means that goods can be sent via Portland, Searsport or Eastport. However, much of the trans-Atlantic freight that comes from Maine will be sent to a larger container port further south before being shipped to the UK. Boston in Massachusetts has a port suited to containerised traffic. Although it lies a little further south, New York’s container port often makes a good staging post for Maine imports that are intended for British waters. We’ll choose the best option given the size and urgency of your shipment.

How to Make Importing from Maine Easier

At Barrington Freight, our operations team will take the hassle out of arranging the transportation of imported goods from Maine. We will provide frequent updates on progress and keep you informed of any changes. Because we deal with shippers and road hauliers in Maine all the time, we can keep prices low, especially if your consignment is not particularly urgent and you can, therefore, benefit from groupage rates.

In addition, our operations team provides customs clearance services to our clients. If you would like to have your HMRC online declaration made by us, then we can act as your agents. This way, imported goods from Maine should not be unduly held up at the port when they are unloaded from an ocean-going vessel. Many British importers use customs clearance brokers but at Barrington Freight we are different, offering both freight forwarding and customs clearance services within the same team.

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 :)
