International Freight to Czech Republic

We have it covered when shipping to the Czech Republic by road. With the most economical groupage services, cheap pallet delivery, bespoke tailored logistics for odd consignments, express services by dedicated courier van across Europe, we are the complete freight forwarder to “Ceska Republika” (as the country is officially known).

The land of Bohemia (Cechy in Slavic) came into being in the 9th century and is still relevant today – “Ceska Republika” covers the lands of Bohemia, Moravia, and Czech Silesia. Czechs themselves do not prefix it with ‘the’ – we should say “shipping from the UK to Czech Republic”; but somehow ‘the’ prefix sounds right so “shipping to the Czech Republic” is more usual. In 1993 the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs coined an official alternative “Czechia” to confuse things even further!

We’ve been handling freight shipping to the Czech Republic for a long time, sending boxes to Bohemia, machinery to Moravia and cartons to Czech Silesia; modern road freight to Ceska Republika is very much us! We handle all business-to-business haulage to Czechia, our knowledgeable advisors are experienced in all aspects of shipping from the UK to the Czech Republic.

Shipping Times From UK to Czech Republic

How Long Does It Take to Ship to Czech Republic?


As members of the British International Freight Association, you can place your trust in Barrington Freight to get a professional job done with each and every road shipment you need to make to Czechia. For standard full load deliveries, we now offer an expedited service where we collect on day 1 and deliver by day 4.

However, it is important to note that we also offer groupage shipping from the UK to the Czech Republic which is the most economical option. With collection occurring in week 1 and delivery by week 3. You can use it for less urgent orders for your Czech customers or ask us to arrange a collection in the country for you if you are shipping from the Czech Republic to the UK.


Our express delivery service from the UK to the Czech Republic has been streamlined for even faster delivery, with vans or lorries leaving the UK, crossing northern France, and arriving in the Czech Republic by day 3 – then we will make the necessary plans. Once your goods have arrived in the EU, they will be sent directly to the Czech Republic without any further delays.

Please note that we can offer you a comprehensive customs clearance service, as well, if you would like. This way, your exportation documents will be prepared for you so that UK customs officers have no good reason to hold your consignment up at the border. With extensive experience dealing with EU customs officials, too, we can ensure your delivery to the Czech Republic makes its way with no unwanted delays.

Customer Reviews

Needed Help getting an odd piece of machinery from the EU and got all the help I needed.
Simon Pool from Barrington freight was very helpful and door to door service to S.Korea was excellent, pick up and delivery services on time. I highly recommend Barrington Freight for air cargo services. Thank you Simon and the team! Kay
The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.
Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.
Working with Barrington was brilliant. They really looked out for us, tackling our tough shipping/freight requirements keeping us informed at every stage of the process. Thank you
kept up to date with all progress, i know they had a particularly troubling time with import customs messing up paperwork but sorted all that out for me. highly reccomend will use again
Excellent company, very efficient and great communication. Competitive , quick quotes!
We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)
Joshua at Barrington Freight is friendly and patient. Their service hassle-free and affordable compared to other freight forwarders.

Customs, VAT and Regulations

VAT Czech Republic

VAT Czech Republic

In the Czech Republic, VAT is known as “Daň z přidané hodnoty” (DPH). Czech VAT regulations conform to EU standards, though there can be differences in their application to various types of goods. The standard VAT rate in the Czech Republic is 21%, which is somewhat lower than the standard rate in some other EU countries. VAT-registered businesses may be able to zero-rate goods they export to the UK, subject to certain conditions being fulfilled. Our in-house customs clearance experts can help with this if needed.

Goods or ServicesVAT Rate Czech Republic
Standard taxable goods and services21%
Reduced rate goods and services (e.g.,some pharmaceutical products and baby products)12%
Intra-community and international transport0%

Some classes of goods are restricted by Czech customs. Take special care when handling a delivery to or from the Czech Republic if it contains:

  • Certain Pharmaceutical Products: Strict regulations on exporting specific medications, particularly those classified as psychotropic substances.
  • Protected Flora and Fauna: Regulations are in place for the export of species protected under CITES as well as Czech conservation laws.
  • Alcoholic Beverages: Restrictions and high excise duties on the export of certain traditional Czech alcoholic beverages, like absinthe and Becherovka, are in place.
  • Military Equipment and Dual-Use Goods: Strict licensing and control for the export of military items and goods that can be used for both civilian and military purposes.
  • Cultural and Historical Artifacts: Strict controls on the export of items with significant cultural or historical value to preserve Czech heritage.
EORI Number Czech Republic

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 Czech Republic will not be sufficient – on its own – to be able to use Czech 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 Czech Republic which has the same regulations in place as every other EU state. Therefore, we can help with multiple consignment deliveries that might include some in Czech Republic and some in other countries, such as those in France, Spain or Belgium, for instance.

Shipping Routes to the Czech Republic from the UK

Internal freight shipping to the Czech Republic benefits from the “D” motorway and “R” expressway networks in the east and in the west of the country, with the D1 between Prague and Brno connecting the two networks which may carry around 100,000 vehicles in a 24-hour period! Fast road networks are extensive, and more are planned, although some areas of the country are less well-served; but drivers from our local partner depots know even remote locations like the back of their hand, so your GB – CZ consignments will always reach their destination safely and on time!
