Sea Freight Imports From Mumbai to the UK

At Barrington Freight, we handle UK imports that are passing through the port at Mumbai regularly which means we are ideally placed to help British firms that are trading with Indian suppliers in the region. Mumbai’s port is officially known as the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) but, sometimes confusingly, it is also known as Nhava Sheva Port. This fact alone can cause some problems for importation firms in the UK that are unused to dealing with logistics in Maharashtra State. 

Nevertheless, it should be noted that Mumbai has the largest container port in the whole of India. Situated in Mumbai’s Raigad district, the port and wider harbour complex combined cover some 400 square kilometres. It is located on the Arabian Sea, something that means ocean-going vessels can make their onward journey to the UK via the Suez Canal with relative ease.

Given how many British firms do business with companies that supply goods from headquarters in and around Mumbai, there is an almost constant demand for containers to be sent from the port to the UK. The operations team at Barrington Freight will be able to get you the best rates for sea freight imports from Mumbai thanks to the network of contacts that are maintained in the area. 

This means being able to collect your order from a supplier in the region and have it transferred to Mumbai for you, if wanted. We can also deal with Indian customs officials on your behalf to ensure your goods are loaded onto the next available vessel that is heading westwards toward British waters.
