All British importers who have suppliers in Kolkata – the capital city in West Bengal State – should be able to access a reliable pallet shipment service that is both secure and cost-effective. This is exactly what we offer at Barrington Freight. Our operations team is well-versed in shipping commercial goods from all over India including the Port of Kolkata (INCCU). Given that the city is particularly associated with engineering firms, pharmaceutical manufacturing and other high-tech industries, there can be little wonder why so many UK-based firms eye Kolkata and its surrounding areas as one where suitable suppliers can be found.
Given its location, it is worth noting that Kolkata is navigable for many types of container vessels from the Bay of Bengal via the Hooghly River. As such, even though it is not on the coast, it offers convenient access to the shipping lanes that criss-cross this part of the Indian Ocean. Palletised goods being sent to the UK will typically need to be conveyed around the southern tip of the sub-continent before passing on to the Red Sea, the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic and, finally, the English Channel. We’ll arrange for a suitable route for your pallet or pallets from Kolkata and make sure that once they’ve been cleared by UK customs officials, the onward journey to your business premises is handled swiftly, as well.
