Shipping to Romania from the UK

At Barrington Freight, our operations team is made up of highly skilled Romania freight forwarders who understand the priorities of British businesses. Because we only handle commercial freight with road shipments to Eastern Europe, we are geared up to deliver what UK exporters really want. The two priorities we cater to are reliable shipments to all locations in Romania and a cost-effective pricing structure. Although no two shipments are the same – an FTL consignment to Cluj-Napoca is likely to be very different to price up compared to a single carton of spare parts being sent to Arad near the Hungarian border, for example – we’ll always do our best to offer a competitive quotation.

Moreover, we offer a complete business solution, something that SMEs, in particular, tend to take advantage of. This is because we don’t just handle shipping logistics to Romania but customs controls as well. Acting as your customs clearance agent, we can make all of the necessary preparations for your customs documents so your shipment won’t be delayed as it leaves the UK or enters the EU. Should your road freight pass through Serbia, a non-EU state, then we can also handle the necessary paperwork for this to happen seamlessly.

Please note that our customs expertise can also be used when shipping from Romania to UK warehouses and depots.

Shipping Times From UK to Romania

How Long Does It Take to Ship to Romania?


At Barrington Freight, we offer a huge range of transport options over land, and we are fully committed to delivering impeccable customer service when shipping to Romania. Lead times for a typical delivery to Romania from the UK vary but we aim to collect on the UK mainland on day 1 and to deliver on day 6 for a full load shipment.

On the other hand, we can arrange groupage shipping from the UK to Romania. This is a very cost-effective way of shipping to Romania from any address in the mainland British Isles. For non-urgent shipments, a groupage service will be picked up on week 1 and delivered on week 3, with all consignments being handled with just the same care and attention as other shipments.


Our express shipping to Romania is handled promptly, professionally and – perhaps most importantly of all – cost-effectively. We work out the best way to collect your goods from wherever they might be right now – in your warehouse in Kettering or your production facility in Carlisle – and will have them collected on day one and delivered on day 5

With decades of know-how and a professional operations team who are used to a variety of shipments and palletised goods, Barrington Freight can be relied upon for efficient and fast delivery to Romania from the UK. Why not email or phone us today to make an enquiry about our five-day express B2B service to find out more about how we can operate as your courier to Romania?

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.

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 :)

Fantastic service from Barrington Freight. It was our first time exporting goods from the UK and it was very reassuring to have them manage the shipment. The process was made easy and hassle free and Simon was always quick to respond to any queries. I would highly recommend.
Romania Import Customs Requirements

Customs Considerations, VAT and Prohibited Items


To organise a Romania delivery to the UK, British importers must consider VAT notices, commodity codes and potentially excise duty. In Romania, VAT is known as “TVA” (Taxa pe Valoarea Adăugată). Some suppliers may be able to zero-rate goods they export to the UK, subject to certain conditions being satisfied. Romanian VAT rules comply with EU standards, as Romania is an EU member state. Nonetheless, there may be specific variations in how these regulations are applied to different types of goods. The standard VAT rate in Romania is 19%, which is lower than the rate in some EU countries. Our customs clearance agents can help if you are new to importing goods and making such declarations with HMRC.

Goods or ServicesVAT Rate Romania
Standard taxable goods and services19%
First reduced rate goods and services (e.g. Medicines and medical equipment)9%
Second reduced rate goods and services (e.g. Books and newspapers)5%
Zero Rate products and goods (e.g. some goods traded within the European Union.)0%

Shipping from Romania to the UK with road freight may mean taking extra steps if any of the following goods are included in the consignment.

  • Wood and Timber Products: Due to Romania’s vast forests, there are specific regulations on the export of wood and timber products to combat illegal logging and promote sustainable forestry practices.
  • Traditional Alcoholic Beverages: Specific rules and excise duties cover the export and import of Romanian alcoholic beverages, such as țuică and palincă, to help maintain quality standards and authenticity.
  • Cultural and Historical Objects: Strict restrictions on the export of Romanian artefacts, including items from the Dacian, Greek, and Roman periods, as well as Orthodox religious icons and traditional folk art, help to protect the country’s rich cultural heritage.
  • Electronic Surveillance Equipment: Strict regulations and licensing covering the import and export of advanced electronic surveillance devices, reflect the EU’s commitment to privacy and data security standards.
EORI Number Romania

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 Romania will not be sufficient – on its own – to be able to use Romanian 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 Romania which has the same regulations in place as every other EU state. Therefore, we can assist with multiple consignment deliveries, including those destined for Romania as well as other countries, such as ItalySpain or France, for instance.

Shipping Routes to Romania from the UK

We have a vast network of drivers to call upon. As such, we can ensure a van is with you to collect your items and ensure it’s on its way to the channel ports on the South Coast without delay. Nevertheless, if it is better to utilise a roll-on/roll-off ferry service from Newcastle or the Humber Estuary, then this is what we’ll do.

Typically, your goods will land in northern France at either Calais or Dunkirk. From there, it is about an 18-hour drive to the Romanian border with Hungary. Usually, the route will mean passing through Belgium, Germany and Austria. However, we will keep monitoring the route and change it if there is a chance of avoiding delays.

As such, when shipping to Romania, goods can sometimes pass through parts of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and even Serbia, which shares a land border with Romania. Needless to say, you will be kept informed about progress, information you can pass on to your Romanian customer.
