Reliable Road Freight Service To Albania

Road freight cargo from the UK to the Republic of Albania (Republika e Shqiperise in Albanian) has grown rapidly since they revoked communist rule in 1991. With the opening up of Albanian trade with the west, they became an official candidate for membership of the EU, and also a member of Nato; but at the present, the correct customs documents are still a requirement for UK exports to Albania; let us undertake your haulage to or from Albania – we will advise on the paperwork and ensure swift clearance of customs – we are the first-choice professional freight forwarders to the Republic!

We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to/from Albania. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific

As an independent family-run European haulage and transport company, Barrington Freight has dedicated and professional Albanian freight advisors to ensure your business-to-business cargo from the UK to Albania or return arrives safely and on time. Whether you have just a few export pallets or cartons to send as groupage to Albania, a part load of machinery or manufactured goods, or a full load of 120×100 or 120×80 centimetre based pallets stacked to the roof of a truck or trailer, we have cheap delivery services for your exports to Albania, and UK imports from Albania too!

Secure Shipments From The UK To albania

“Cheap pallet delivery” is the cry of all freight forwarders to & from Albania; but do not be fooled by certain other cheap courier companies, with whom you may have to wait for ages “sorry, the truck/trailer is not quite full yet”! As we are an independent, we book frequent departures with a number of reputable European hauliers, and waiting times are always minimised with Barrington Freight to Albania! Transit times to and from the customs terminal in the capital Tirana are typically just 8-10 days; we find this to be the most convenient drop-off/collection centre for the country, with local freight services best placed to handle cross-country logistics.

Such groupage to Albania is one of our most popular services – in fact, our economy groupage services have become legendary. Our local partner depots across the UK cater for door-to-door collection and delivery, whilst your local Albanian logistics and distribution services will cover all 12 Albanian counties (mostly named after their largest city); from Shkoder County in the North down to Vlore and Gjirokaster Counties in the South. Your local Albanian distribution partners are greatly aided by the ever-improving road network, including the three main motorways: A1 dual carriageway Durres-Vlore; Albania-Kosovo Highway; and the Tirana-Elbasan Highway.

With coastlines on the Adriatic and Ionian seas and the Balkan highlands which lie inland, the entire country is at a latitude which creates a variety of weather patterns during the winter and summer seasons. The lowlands have mild winters, averaging about 7-10° C, and summer temperatures averaging 24-30° C; the highlands experience much greater variations in temperature, due to their great elevation and inconsistencies between river valleys and mountain peaks. The varied and attractive landscapes have seen a massive increase in tourism, especially on the so-called “Albanian Riviera”; it rose from just 0.5 million visitors in 2005 to over 4.2 million in 2012. This has the inevitable knock-on effect, i.e. significantly increasing the demand for consumer goods exported to Albania.

Whether its groupage to Albania or part-load or even full-load road haulage to the Republic, our delivery services to the capital Tirana are also ideal for other cities such as Durres, Vlore, Elbasan, Shkoder, Korce, Fier, Kameez, Berat, Lushnje, Kavaje, Sarande, Paskuqan, Pogradec and Gjirokaster. Providing cheap international shipping costs for your road freight to Albania is important to us, but no less so than excellent service; some other cheap courier services can only handle standard UK or Euro export pallets, but we go the extra mile.

From the local Tirana customs terminal, you can arrange delivery to even the smallest Albanian village, and do not forget we carry fragile/secure or time-sensitive cargo from the UK to Albania (or return) as well. We also handle awkward shapes and sizes, and large or heavy Albanian machinery too.

Shipping to Albania from the UK

Because the operations team here at Barrington Freight are so experienced with road shipments to Albania, we can often provide our customers with a more reliable and less costly service than they would be able to obtain elsewhere. We are proud to be members of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) which marks us out as true professionals in the freight forwarding business. Not only do we act as customs clearance agents on behalf of UK-based exporters – when required – but we also ensure goods to Albania arrive within their expected schedule and in the same condition that they left the UK in.

Consequently, we have a wealth of business-to-business expertise to share with British firms that would like to trade with customers in Balkan countries outside of the European Union, like Albania. Whether you have a couple of pallets you need to arrive in Tirana or you have a full container load of goods that have been ordered by an Albanian client in a southern resort town like Sarandë, for example, we can help. Feel free to ask us about our freight forwarding service to Albania or simply request a quotation for your next shipment to the country.

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!
