Importing from Minnesota to the UK

British-based firms with suppliers in Minnesota can import goods from the state without any hassles or headaches thanks to Barrington Freight’s high-quality freight forwarding service. Minnesota was a state that used to export only raw materials and agricultural produce but it has a significant manufacturing sector nowadays. As such, importing both finished goods and components from Minnesota is something many British companies would like to do. What frequently puts them off is a lack of awareness of how to get imports out of Minnesota quickly and cost-effectively. Helpfully, our competitively priced service and local know-how will help to bridge this gap so that UK firms can enjoy good trading relationships with numerous Minnesota-based suppliers

Firstly, we can arrange for your orders to be collected from Minnesota and convey them to Lake Superior where they can board a vessel for the Atlantic Ocean via the Lawrence Seaway. Duluth is a typical embarkation point in Minnesota for this route but it is not the only option. Sometimes, it will be more cost-effective to load shipments onto a container and then transport them by land to an East Coast container port, such as Baltimore or New York, for instance. Both of these routes offer certain advantages, notably rapidity, something that is certainly the case for smaller consignments.

Customs Clearance Brokers for Minnesota Imports

Dealing with the logistical side of getting imported goods out of the US and onto an ocean-going vessel that is bound for the UK is just part of what we do. We’ll also take care of Minnesota imports once they arrive in the UK. For some importers, this is simply a matter of arranging their onward transit into the British Isles after they’ve been unloaded. For others, we also carry out customs clearance work. This means making sure that all of the documentation required by British customs officers is completed to their satisfaction. Allowing us to handle this technical work is often advisable since it can help to avoid errors and potential delays at the dockyard while paperwork issues are resolved.

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 :)
