Trade between Belarus and the EU is far less than with neighbouring Russia; so it may come as no surprise that shipping freight to Belarus from the UK and back is (relatively speaking) a specialist task. Many European hauliers decline all haulage to Belarus, but here at Barrington Freight we have the logistics, the expertise and the transport capacity to handle it – so choose us as your freight forwarder to Belarus, and you will not be disappointed. Our transit time to the customs terminal in the capital Minsk is typically just 7 days!
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Belarus. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
For business-to-business freight to Belarus or return, we are very hard to beat. Get your online QuickQuote for our cheap pallet delivery and economy groupage services; whatever your load, we offer the best international shipping rates for your 120×100 or 120×80 centimetre base pallets, printers pallets, plastic pallets and of course wooden pallets, cartons and boxes too. So whether you have a full load, a part load, or groupage to Belarus – ship it with us. We are not “just another cheap courier service”!
As a “niche” destination for road freight deliveries, some European couriers may only send their trucks or trailers on a fortnightly basis; but as an independent freight forwarder to Belarus, here at Barrington Freight we ship with a number of reputable European haulage and transport companies, and so there is nearly always a vehicle ready and waiting for your cargo from the UK to Belarus or return.
We consider your exports to Belarus as top priority; we have strategic local partner depots collecting shipments from around the UK, for prompt onward delivery to the customs terminal in Minsk – serving all the 6 regions of Brest, Homel, Hrodna, Magilieu, Minsk and Vitebsk (each named after their administrative capitals). Likewise, we carry imports from Belarus on our return journey from Minsk. Though we can’t ourselves visit every Belarus village town and city for you, local carriers will be pleased to handle this step of the journey – including to or from Barysaw, Salihorsk, Maladzyechna, Zhodzina, Slutsk, Vilyeyka, Dzyarzhynsk, Marjina Horka, Stowbtsy, and many other places.
Much of the Belarusian economy remains state controlled and “Soviet style”, with just under half the country’s 4 million workforce being employed by privately owned companies; i.e. over half are employed by the state. Perhaps predictably, Russia accounts for around 50% of foreign trade; but the European Union has around 30%, and a significant percentage inevitably includes cargo from the UK to Belarus. The United Kingdom is a main trade and investment partner to Belarus, and in the period January-October 2014 the UK was Belarus’ 4th largest trading partner in physical goods.
The turnover in goods traded between Belarus and the UK totalled US$ 2.8 billion in the period from January to October 2014 (up 275% from the previous year). Belarus exports to the UK rose to US$ 2.5 billion (up 3.7 times from 2013), while Belarus imports from the UK were valued at US$ 260 million (22.5% decrease from the previous year). Major exports from Belarus to the UK in 2014 were oil products, while the main British exports included internal-combustion engines, automobiles, farm machinery, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and spirits.
Whatever the goods, if your business-to-business shipment to Belarus or back consists of just a few export pallets or less, then our popular economy groupage service will prove ideal. Groupage to Belarus is picked up using our GB fleet of collection vehicles, and taken to regional warehouses by key motorway routes such as the M6/M1/M25. Our experienced freight-hands carefully match your consignment with other compatible grouped freight to Belarus, and safely load it into international trucks and trailers for transit via the Channel ports across Europe to the customs terminal at Minsk; from this main Belarus depot, your local distribution logistics will be simple. Don’t forget that we do the return journey too!
GB-to-BLR freight can alternatively be shipped as full load consignments, in which case the international vehicle will usually collect from your pick-up point, and then travel directly to the Minsk customs terminal. Such full load haulage to Belarus can be surprisingly economical, and we can handle bespoke shipments of (say) large or heavy machinery as easily as standard 120×100 or 120×80 centimetre base pallets! If you have unusual, difficult or oversize cargo from the UK to Belarus or back, then we are the freight forwarder to Belarus for you!
First time we have used Barrington. We had a minor problem (which wasn't Barrington's fault) that was cleared without panic. Good service, fair price - we will use again Halmstad, Sweden.
We ship large heavy metal screens on pallets to various locations in Europe and further afield. We have always had great service from Barrington Freight right from the initial quotes and customer service through to safe, on time deliveries and keeping us informed throughout the process.
Great service. Even after confirming the collection at 2pm it arrived in Germany the next morning. One happy end user
The chipper arrived first thing this morning exactly on time as arranged. I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service. I will definitely call on you again if I need anything shifted!
Excellent freight service which got us out of a tight corner when we needed some goods from Switzerland in a hurry. Special thanks to Simon for being right on top of everything.
Simon, thank you for taking care of our shipment - we appreciate your efforts and professional attitude.
