Here at Barrington Freight, UK based freight forwarders to Europe, we specialise in next day delivery to Portugal. From emergency freight to express freight, we’ve got it covered to ensure your deliveries are made on time every time.
To help us ensure we deliver your express freight to Europe as requested, it pays to know a little about Portugal’s road infrastructure, say for instance the fact that out of 3,600km of main national roads, 1,500km of motorways and high-capacity routes are financed under the public-private partnership agreements. This basically means they’re tolled, with plans now in action to ensure routes become multi free-flow electronic toll collection lanes too.
In total, Portugal has a national road network of 16,500km (give or take a mile or two) and the municipalities actually have their own road networks totaling 90,000km. The municipalities are responsible for the maintenance, upgrading and subsequent investments of all roads not included in the National Road Plan. There are also more recent plans now in action for the construction of Lisbon’s new international airport as well as a brand new road and rail bridge between Chelas and Barreiro. This will be the third crossing for Tagus and be yet another way to ensure next day delivery services to particular areas within Portugal. To make things easier for our customers, we also offer dedicated delivery by van for the more two day express freight to Portugal too.
This means if you have an urgent shipment that needs to make its way to a particular location in Portugal, we’ll be able to accommodate thanks to our dedicated express freight service by courier van. This means door-to-door, your goods will be at their desired location in less than 48 hours. We’re able to offer this with the help of our fleet of sprinter vans and luton vans. We also offer a mix of one man and two man teams ensuring a non-stop journey all the way from collection to drop-off. We’ve found this service particularly good for those who may not benefit from having a lot of notice.
First time we have used Barrington. We had a minor problem (which wasn't Barrington's fault) that was cleared without panic. Good service, fair price - we will use again Halmstad, Sweden.
We ship large heavy metal screens on pallets to various locations in Europe and further afield. We have always had great service from Barrington Freight right from the initial quotes and customer service through to safe, on time deliveries and keeping us informed throughout the process.
Great service. Even after confirming the collection at 2pm it arrived in Germany the next morning. One happy end user
The chipper arrived first thing this morning exactly on time as arranged. I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service. I will definitely call on you again if I need anything shifted!
Excellent freight service which got us out of a tight corner when we needed some goods from Switzerland in a hurry. Special thanks to Simon for being right on top of everything.
Simon, thank you for taking care of our shipment - we appreciate your efforts and professional attitude.
