France is a founding member of the European Union, so delivery by road freight to France requires no customs documentation. Significantly, exports and imports to and from France are some of the largest in the world, with French exports of machinery, transportation equipment, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceutical products, beverages and iron and steel, and imports of various raw materials, machinery and equipment, crude oil, plastics, chemicals and electronic products too. But regardless of whatever special business-to-business shipping requirements you may have, Barrington Freight are on hand to deliver the perfect cargo freighting solution to your problems.

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!
