Barrington Freight to Finland guarantees problem-free shipping and secure road freight haulage to Scandinavia – whether using our flagship express services or our economy groupage services. As a major freight forwarder to the Nordic region, we will despatch full load or part load trucks on most days of the week (unlike most other cheap courier companies); so we avoid those frustrating delays associated with waiting to fill up a vehicle!
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Finland. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
Our 48 hour / 2 day services, and our competitive 3-5 day economy groupage services, are amongst the best available – but we don’t stop there! For really urgent business-to-business cargo, our fleet of dedicated express courier vans to Europe are ideal for your fragile / secure / time sensitive cargo from the UK to Finland or back. We can even supply two-man driving teams to ensure the journey is non-stop, and we can reach Helsinki from London in less than a day and a half – or from Glasgow in just a little more.
Our express road freight vans are waiting at our network of local depots across the UK, ready to collect your Finnish freight from the pick-up point of your choice. We speed directly to your Nordic destination via Eurotunnel or the Channel ports, through France / Belgium / Netherlands / Germany, and then either via Denmark across the Oresund Bridge and through Sweden, or else up through Poland / Lithuania / Latvia and Estonia; both routes end with a short ferry journey to Finland itself. Depending on the exact route chosen by our European courier, up to 95% of the road journey is by express European motorway – which guarantees the fastest possible delivery of your exports and imports to and from Finland!
If our express services to “Suomi” (Finnish for Finland) are our flagship offerings, then groupage to Finland and back is our bread-and-butter. Whether UK or Euro pallets, printers pallets, plastic pallets, wooden pallets, boxes / cartons / cages / skids / stillages, shrink wrapped or stretch wrapped, export packed cargo from the UK to Finland – whatever your part load (or full load) we can handle it. Our professional team of agents are experienced freight forwarders to Finland, meaning we organise delivery logistics which other cheap European haulage and transport companies would decline.
Haulage to Finland is core business, and we specialise in arranging bespoke / exact / tailored / fragile transport requirements; including awkward shapes and sizes, big / tall / long / high / heavy machinery, timed pick-ups and drop-offs. We provide specialist vehicles including tail-lifts as well as all the usual haulage vehicles relevant to road freight to Finland. So if your load is unusual, don’t hesitate; ring 01268 525 444 and discuss your requirements with our helpful Nordic freight advisers.
As a family-owned freight forwarder to Finland, we pride ourselves on customer service; we hate impersonal call centres, and you will speak directly to the same named expert for all aspects of your consignment.
Our specialist agents talk you through the options, provide the best inexpensive rates / quotes for your Finnish shipment, place your booking, and keep you updated with progress through to final delivery. Your cargo from the UK to Finland is safe in our hands!
As one of the world’s northernmost countries, a quarter of Finlands territory is in the Arctic Circle; so it will be no surprise that the majority of trade and commerce (as well as population) is in the South. The country consists of 19 regions (“maakunta” in Finnish); listing them north-to-south: Lapland, Northern Ostrobothnia, Kainuu, Central Ostrobothnia, Northern Savonia, Ostrobothnia, Southern Ostrobothnia, North Karelia, Central Finland, Southern Savonia, Pirkanmaa, Satakunta, Paijanne Tavastia, South Karelia, Tavastia Proper, Kymenlaakso, Uusimaa, Finland Proper and the Aland Islands.
Whilst our economy groupage services are available to all regions, we cannot always offer express services or 48 hour / 2 day services to the more remote destinations; having said that, we export and import to and from all over Finland, and regularly visit the cities and towns of Espoo, the capital Helsinki, Joensuu, Jyvaskyla, Kotka, Kuopio, Lahti, Oulu, Lappeenranta, Mikkeli, Pori, Rovaniemi, Tampere, Turku, Vaasa, Vantaa, Kouvola, Hameenlinna etc.
Finland joined the EU in 1995, so there is no special documentation required for shipping to Finland. This benefit has encouraged growth in Finnish trade with the UK, including products such as electronics, machinery, vehicles, metal-engineered products, forestry and timber, and paper. We provide cheap international shipping on all such goods, and our cheap pallet delivery services for manufactured items are ideal for groupage to Finland – we are happy to handle either 120×100 or 120×80 centimetre base pallets, stackable or non-stackable, so why look elsewhere for your haulage to Finland?
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.
