With an ever-expanding demand for exports to and from the UK to Italy, it’s no wonder that so many companies are looking to improve their freight delivery options, these days. That’s why, at Barrington Freight, we offer an exclusive and highly effective solution for a raft of commercial freight deliveries, allowing you to get your cargo where it needs to go. What’s more, it will get there in good time, too, whether your client is in a northern Italian city, such as Milan or Bologna, or further south, such as Naples or Bari. Our pallet delivery to Italy service is one that we are extremely proud of. This is because it has made it easier and more cost-effective than ever before to make deliveries safely and on time.
As proud members of the British International Freight Association, we have combined our industry expertise, inside knowledge of Italy and our logistics and planning systems to provide one of the best solutions offered by any UK freight forwarder. With our pallet delivery to Italy services, we can assure you that your goods, products or stock will reach their destination securely and within the designated time frame. If you trade with Italy and have goods that can be palletised, then there is no better option when considering how best to get your consignments to the Italian peninsula.
Convenience, affordability and speed are three of the key aspects that make our pallet transportation solution stand out from the crowd. This is so throughout continental Europe and beyond but the case for saying so is particularly strong insofar as Italy is concerned. This is simply because pallets are one of the easiest ways to make deliveries around the world, especially when vans and trucks are using established trade routes on well-maintained roads. Given the way that freight can get to the Italian border from the UK so quickly, it is one of the most cost and time-effective options around.
At Barrington Freight, we will make use of various specialist equipment and vehicles at either end of the delivery route so you can have complete confidence that we will meet your deadlines. We know the importance of meeting those deadlines for maintaining business relationships, as we need to do the same every day. For some Italian customers, knowing they can still rely on British suppliers in the post-Brexit environment is a big deal. Why let them down with an inferior service when Barrington Freight is here to ensure timely and safe pallet deliveries to Italy every day of the year?
After all, the majority of goods, products and stock can be palletised for safer and more space-efficient packing into our trucks. We are currently one of the only UK freight forwarding firms that offer daily pallet delivery to Italy with efficient delivery times and frequent contact with our drivers. We offer a service that runs 24-hours a day, 7-days a week and – throughout the journey – we can keep tabs on your consignment to ensure that the driver will deliver on time. What’s more, we can cope with multiple pallet deliveries when one simply isn’t enough. Even better, we can organise several drops for you on the same trip if you have goods that are destined for multiple customers in different Italian towns and cities.
Remember that reaching the Italian border means using some of the best roads in Europe. The Mont Blanc tunnel – through which much freight from northern Europe passes into Italy – is about an eight and a half-hour drive from the port of Calais on the English Channel. It offers good onward routes to northern and central Italy. Meanwhile, the eastern side of the Italian peninsula is well served by the E55 trunk route which conveniently connects places like Pescara, Foggia and Rimini. At Barrington Freight, we can also help your pallet delivery to Italy arrive on time even if your consignment needs to end up on an Italian island, such as Sardinia or Sicily.
At Barrington Freight, we have handled countless pallet deliveries to Italy since the UK left the European Union. Because the UK is no longer inside the customs union, it is now necessary to prepare export paperwork for all shipments from the UK so that EU customs officials know exactly what class of commodities and goods are being imported. In the main, this will happen at the point of arrival. This means France in most cases although some shipments may enter the EU through a Belgian or Dutch port instead. Equally, some palletised shipments to Italy will be sent by air freight. If so, it will be Italian customs officers who need to see the correct paperwork.
Whichever route is taken, Barrington Freight can help to ensure your customs clearance documents are in good order. This way, your items won’t suffer from any unnecessary hold ups on the border. We are accredited customs clearance agents as well as freight forwarders. Ask us if you need help in this area and we will be only too pleased to offer our services. They are both delivered from under the same roof.
Italy is in Southern Europe, a peninsula extending into the central Mediterranean Sea, north-east of Tunisia. Italy borders France, Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia.
