International Freight to Austria

Whether you want a next-day, express or standard service when shipping to Austria, Barrington Freight can help. We are one of the few haulage companies which ship cargo and freight to Austria daily. Many freight forwarders may take days to consolidate their shipments into a full truck load to central Europe, but we normally collect and despatch (in both directions) every day – ensuring groupage to Austria is never delayed!

In addition, many of our competitors only offer pallet delivery to Austria via Vienna, but our additional depots in the North and South of Austria give us great coverage for haulage to ALL areas of Austria. Austrian cargo shipments are collected from all over Great Britain and sent by van or truck via Eurotunnel or Dover to our local depots in Linz, Graz and Vienna. This provides ease of access to all 9 of the federal states (or Bundeslander) – namely Burgenland, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Vienna, Carinthia, Salzburg, Styria, Tyrol, and Vorarlberg.

Austrian Import Customs Requirements

Customs Considerations, VAT and Prohibited Items

VAT Austria

We can help with the relevant VAT declarations that will be needed whether you are shipping from the UK to Austria or vice versa. The main VAT rate in Austria is 20%, covering nearly all manufactured goods. However, a lower rate of 10% is levied on certain agricultural products. If you’re VAT-registered, then it may be possible to zero-rate the goods you shipt to Austria, provided certain conditions are met. We can help in this field so just ask.

Goods and ServicesVAT Rate Austria
Standard taxable goods and services20%
Reduced rate goods
(e.g., foodstuffs, takeaway food, pharmaceutical products,and more)
10%
Intra-community and international transport (excluding road and rail)0%
Restrictions

Certain classes of goods cannot be imported into Austria from the UK so seek specialist advice if your Austrian business customers ask for any of the following potentially prohibited items.

  • Hazardous materials: Certain chemicals, waste and radioactive materials are restricted under EU regulations.
  • Drugs and psychotropic substances: Strictly controlled, there’s a ban on exporting narcotics and psychotropic substances without proper authorisation.
  • Food and agricultural products: This class of goods must meet EU health and safety standards.
  • Cultural goods and antiques: Items over a certain age or value may require an export license if they are to be shipped to Austria from the UK.
  • Tobacco and alcohol: Such goods are liable for excise duties and may require packaging requirements to be met.
EORI Number Austria

You will need an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) for the UK and any EU country you ship to and from alongside a range of other customs requirements. See our blog on what is an EORI Number? for more information.

Remember, too, that simply registering with HMRC as an importer of goods from Austria will not be sufficient – on its own – to be able to use Austrian suppliers.

Barrington Freight operates as a customs clearance agency as well as a team of expert freight forwarders, so we can help you with all of these matters if you need us to, whether you’re importing or exporting. We have the necessary licensing arrangements in place to oversee exported goods from the UK to Austria which has the same regulations in place as every other EU state. Therefore, we can assist with multiple consignment deliveries, including those destined for Austria as well as other countries, ItalySpain or Belgium, for instance.

Shipping Routes to Austria from the UK

The 18 Austrian autobahns (Bundesautobahnen) have a total length of 1,720 km and straddle the entire country; their general speed limit is 130 km/hour and, together with many useful Alpine tunnels, they ensure even our biggest trucks can speed to almost any part of the country.

The states of Vienna, Lower Austria and Upper Austria are the most densely populated and, therefore, generate the most haulage to and from the two countries. Austrian industry and commerce – together with the most agricultural state of Burgenland – are centred in these areas. Helpfully, they lie in the easily accessible valley of the River Danube.

Conversely, the other five states are in the Alps and thus are relatively unfavourable to heavy industry and long-distance trade. Having said that, we are happy to deliver right across Austria – not just the capital Vienna, but all other main cities and towns including Graz, Linz, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Villach, Wels, Sankt Polten, Dornbirn, Wiener Neustadt, Steyr, Feldkirch, Bregenz, Klosterneuburg, Leonding, Baden, Wolfsberg, Leoben, Krems, and others. When it comes to road freight shipping, Austria presents no problems for us!
