The professional freight forwarders at Barrington Freight have the necessary experience to handle all sorts of imports from Washington state to the UK. We have been handling the logistics of all sorts of deliveries from the West Coast of the US for many years, meaning that our procedures are honed when it comes to getting goods from this part of the country to the UK. We have the licenses that are required for international shipments including those that will pass through US customs. Turn to Barrington Freight with confidence because our track record with the management of imports from Washington speaks for itself.

The second-most populous state that faces the Pacific Ocean in the US, Washington is primarily associated with agriculture in many people’s eyes. However, it is also a hub for manufacturing. Wine production is among its biggest exports. In addition, Washington-based manufacturers are responsible for the production of many aerospace and automotive parts. Transportation equipment, material handling goods and industrial electronic goods are all among the state’s top products. Consequently, British firms are often able to strike good deals with Washington-based companies. Unfortunately, they are often let down by poor logistical operations.

Importing from washington (and the other way too)

This is where our operations team can be so effective. Why not allow us to manage the shipment of your orders from Washington to the UK rather than relying on your own personnel or those of your supplier? We’ll ensure importation processes from Washington don’t cost the earth and are handled with speed. Typically, we’ll arrange for goods to be shipped to the UK via a West Coast port. There are numerous, if relatively small, ports in Washington state. We may send your goods to a larger one in California or even to the East Coast, if it is more cost-effective to do so. Of course, each decision we make will be based on your commercial priorities.

Why Opt for Barrington Freight’s Washington Importation Services?

We are members of the British International Freight Association, something that should indicate to all importers of goods from Washington that we are a properly run firm. Based in Essex, we can often negotiate better terms for the passage of goods from the US to the UK than American operators can. To discuss your Washington importation requirements in greater detail, feel free to phone us or just email us your contact details and we’ll get back to you.

Washington State Imports to the UK Handled Professionally

As professionals who have years of collective know-how with importing from Washington state, we can deal with any unforeseen circumstances and last-minute problems. Even better, we also have in-house customs clearance agents. Customs clearances are required for all commercial goods entering the UK from the USA. If your imports from Washington are not properly declared, then they might be impounded or at least delayed by HMRC officials. Many UK importers don’t have the expertise to cope with this specialist and often technical work. Why not outsource it to us instead so your entire importation process is managed with a single point of contact?

We’re friendly, easy to work with, honest and we don’t charge the earth.

Brilliant EXW freight forwarding services from China to the UK. Professionally done, readily available for support, and our shipments were trackable. There were last minute issues on regards to customs clearance and redirecting of goods that we take responsibility for, but with their quick action, we were able to swiftly solve it all in much less than 24hrs. Fantastic experience working with Simon and his team, will continue to engage them for the foreseeable future. Thanks again Simon and the BF team!
