At Barrington Freight, we have a great deal of expertise when it comes to shipping pallets from Ludhiana – one of the northernmost industrial cities in India – to the UK. As one of the major trading cities of Punjab State, Ludhiana has many businesses that will be of interest to British importing firms, not least in its manufacturing sector. However, some British businesspeople are put off placing orders with suppliers in the city because they realise that it is many miles from a seaport and fear that expensive air freight may be the only viable option.
This is certainly not the case, as Barrington Freight’s pallet shipment service to the UK from Ludhiana has proved time and again. For one thing, Ludhiana has its own inland port (INLUD) which means that customs checks by Indian officials can take place locally. Once palletised goods have gone through this required procedure, they can be transported to a suitable container port in western India. Veraval, Sura, Mundra, Bhavnagar and Kandla all serve this purpose and have great road and rail links to and from Ludhiana. Therefore, there is nothing to prevent an order from being placed with a supplier in the city and for goods to be ready for embarkation at a seaport within a matter of a few days.
