At Barrington Freight, we’re committed to bringing you the most reliable and low-cost road freight services for your shipments to Poland. We aim to make getting freight to Poland a process that is both quick and straightforward for exporters. The same goes for UK importers who have suppliers in Poland, of course. Thanks to our extensive range of vehicles, it means that we are able to facilitate freight services to and from Poland for businesses of any size. Please note that our largest vehicles offer a whopping 100 cubic metre capacity. This means that there’s plenty of room for commercial cargo deliveries to mainland Poland of all types. Of course, we are also well-equipped to handle smaller shipments to this part of Eastern Europe. We also offer a range of compact vehicles that can carry full, part, or groupage loads options to provide the best freight solutions to Poland you will find in the UK.
The Barrington Freight team are specialists in road freight to Poland and even the thousand miles between the UK and the country won’t stop us from delivering your cargo on time. As well as a 48-hour turnaround service, we offer next day deliveries to Poland and a raft of other express consignment options you can take advantage of. As such, our range of urgent freight services to and from Poland are both reliable and flexible, offering complete assurance for both the supplier and the customer of the goods concerned.
Getting your cargo from A to B is just one part of our service. In addition to providing secure, reliable and efficient commercial transport services to Poland, we can assist with other areas of the shipping process. These might include things like customs requirements – something that needs to be considered because Poland lies within the European Union’s customs union while the UK is outside of it. Helpfully, when shipping road freight to Poland, we can help you to make sure your paperwork is in good order before the goods arrive within the EU’s domain. We have the necessary licenses in place to assist with customs clearance work around the world, including within the EU. Therefore, if you were to use a road freight route from the UK to Poland that included a cross-channel ferry to Calais, for example, we would be able to assist you with all of the paperwork requirements to ensure your consignment doesn’t get held up clearing customs before making its onward journey eastward to the Polish border.
Likewise, our customs clearance work also includes ensuring British importers of Polish goods do not fall foul of the post-Brexit requirements. Anyone who is importing commercial freight from Poland to the UK will need to register with HMRC these days. Even if you are already VAT-registered, you will still need an EORI number and to make further declarations with each consignment. For example, shipments need to have supporting paperwork to say what commodity class is being transported. HMRC has a coding system it expects all importers to use for this and we can advise you accordingly. We’ll also assist with issues such as whether excise duty needs to be declared and paid. As such, Barrington Freight is not just an expert freight forwarder for British firms to use when they trade with Polish suppliers, but a customs clearance agency, as well. Why not combine these two services when you next ship freight to or from Poland with a road haulier and benefit from them both being delivered by the same operations team?
Finally, another important aspect of managing freight to Poland involves working out whether transit insurance will be required or would be advisable. A range of factors come into play here, not least the value of the goods being despatched. Again, we can advise you on this whether you have a full load of cargo heading to Poland or are relying on a more cost-effective groupage service. Transit insurance will protect you in the event of accidental damage or theft and it is something that many clients like to opt for given the competitive rates we can negotiate on your behalf. In the end, our network is extensive and far-reaching, so if there is anything you need for your shipment to Poland, we can help. All you have to do is ask and we will do our best to provide you with a solution that fits your particular commercial and operational priorities.
Road freight to Poland is easy with Barrington Freight, even with the extra customs obligations following the UK’s departure from the European Union. We constantly endeavour to give a speedy and expert service to all our clients who send freight to Poland. Transit times to the country are currently five to seven days for groupage shipments. A full load road freight solution to Poland would typically be delivered door to door in three to four days. With an express freight shipment to Poland, the transit times are even lower and typically take just one to two days.
