As professional freight forwarders, Barrington Freight is the perfect partner to choose when you want to import goods from Maryland. One of the smaller US states, Maryland boasts a thriving economy. Indeed, manufacturing firms in the state frequently account for upwards of $25 billion in revenue with wholesale products, consumer electronics, musical instruments and beverages making up a significant part of that impressive figure. Consequently, numerous British firms would like to purchase goods from companies based in Maryland but do not know how to deal with the logistical side of so doing.

This is where our local knowledge of one of the smallest states in the union can be so useful. Not only do we have an extensive number of contacts with logistical firms in Maryland’s largest city, Baltimore, but we can rapidly arrange the collection of goods from places like Cumberland, Frederick, Salisbury or Elkton, for instance. Thanks to the expertise of our operations team, British importers have been benefiting from trading with Maryland-based firms for many years.

Importing from maryland (and the other way too)

A large proportion of imports from Maryland will be sent to the UK by sea. Baltimore is the state’s largest port, facing the large Chesapeake Bay which offers access to the Atlantic Ocean. This is a containerised port with plenty of modern facilities, ideal when swift imports to the UK from Maryland are required. Sometimes, it may make more sense to send goods by road to Philadelphia or New York, however. We will always make an individual assessment on your behalf and choose the fastest and most cost-effective route.

Ask Barrington Freight to Help Importing to the UK from Maryland

We are pleased with our track record of helping British firms successfully import goods from Maryland and other parts of the US. We are members of the British International Freight Association, something that distinguishes us in the freight forwarding industry. Feel free to contact us to find out why so many companies turn to us for professional Maryland importation services these days.

Clear Customs Fast With Imports from Maryland

We have the licencing in place to get freight out of the United States whether you are importing via Maryland’s principal port or another one on the East Coast. It is also worth bearing in mind that our operations team can act as customs clearance brokers, as well. This will mean that the necessary documentation that UK customs officers will expect to see when your imports arrive from Maryland is in good order. Without this service, you will need to know which commodity codes to use, whether tariffs apply, how much duty to pay and whether or not VAT payments will be expected.

Why deal with these technicalities yourself, when we can do the hard work for you? Note that our customs clearance agents work alongside our freight forwarders for a coordinated service. This way, you can keep everything under one roof and benefit from an economy of scale rather than turning to two separate service providers.

We’re friendly, easy to work with, honest and we don’t 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 :)
