The motorways in the Republic of Cyprus ensure swift logistical transportation. The A1 runs from Nicosia to Limassol, for example, while the A2 forms a connection to A1 near Pera Chorio. Meanwhile, the A3 connects Larnaca with Ayia Napa and the A5 connects to A1 near Kofinou. The A6 runs from Paphos to Limassol and the A9 connects Nicosia to Astromeritis. Furthermore, there are two international airports in southern Cyprus, one at Larnaca and one at Paphos. Both function as air freight hubs. That said, air freight services to Cyprus can be expensive compared to the road freight alternatives. Even for urgent express services, we can offer competitive road freight as well as timed delivery options that may be much faster than you had imagined.
Freight to the Republic of Cyprus is more straightforward these days thanks to the south’s historical links with the UK. It was under British administration until it gained independence in 1960. There are still two British Overseas Territories (Akrotiri and Dhekelia) with Sovereign Military Bases in the area. As a significant British tourist destination, the demand is high for UK consumer items and imports. Typically, imported goods are made up of citrus fruit, cement, potatoes, clothing and pharmaceuticals, among others.
Cyprus became an EU member in 2004 and entered the Eurozone in 2008, something that was an undoubted stimulus trade with the UK in recent times. Post-Brexit, this relationship has remained strong even though there are additional shipping requirements to take into consideration whether you are importing or exporting. The good news is that the same exact customs requirements apply when shipping to Cyprus as they do for the rest of the EU. This includes things like EORI numbers for both sides and making customs declarations for all goods. Both of these examples are matters that Barrington Freight can assist you with given our prowess with customs clearance work as well as freight forwarding.
Whether you need frequent express services, a one-off cheap pallet delivery, custom or bespoke haulage to Northern Cyprus, or something like an economy groupage service for your cargo, Barrington Freight is the preferred freight forwarder to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. We will work with local partners in Turkey and Northern Cyprus to coordinate deliveries to all five districts in the north. Please note that the same goes for our services to the Republic of Cyprus in the south, too. Whatever kind of delivery service you need and whichever side you are shipping to, we make road freight to Cyprus easy!
