Road freight to Russia and back is a demanding business; as the largest country in the world, it covers more than one-eighth of the Earth’s inhabited land area, and spans nine time zones across Eastern Europe and northern Asia. So being a leading freight forwarder to the Russian Federation and back (“Rossiyskaya Federatsiya”) is not for the faint-hearted!
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Russia.
This vast country is composed of 46 Oblasts (provinces), 22 Republics, 9 Krais (territories), 4 Autonomous Okrugs (autonomous districts), 1 Autonomous Oblast (autonomous province), and 3 Federal Cities (major cities that function as separate regions). They are connected by over 750,000 km of paved roads, and over 175,000 km of unpaved roads; does this give some impression of the immensity of the country, and the challenges it presents to your Russian road freight? Our cost-effective international shipping services operate with transit times of just 7-10 days.
Many cheap courier companies may offer limited transport services for exports to Russia, but not so Barrington Freight. Our economy groupage services are legendary, we work with reliable and experienced Eurasian haulage and transport companies to ensure your groupage to Russia arrives quickly and does not cost the earth! With fast collections from right across the UK, our regional depots consolidate compatible consignments onto our frequent international trucks and trailers about to depart for Eastern Europe and beyond.
With strategically located Russian freight agents speeding your shipments through the local customs depot in Moscow, your groupage is soon ready for you to arrange onwards transport to your eventual destination. All such delivery logistics are best handled entirely by local Russian delivery services, to leverage their expertise in respect of their local conditions (which range from sub-tropical near Sochi, to sub-arctic in Siberia). Of course, we also ship UK imports from Russia too; just get your Russian Freight to the local Moscow depot, and we will arrange the rest of the journey.
Your business-to-business cargo from the UK to Russia (or return) is our prime concern; apart from groupage to Russia, we also offer dedicated international trucks and trailers for your part-load and full-load haulage to Russia or back. We even welcome your difficult or unusual shipments of freight to Russia, or those which other cheap courier services may perhaps have declined; awkward shapes and sizes are our speciality, e.g. heavy machinery, plant, and fragile / secure or time-sensitive cargo too.
Barrington Freight are the expert freight forwarders to Russia; whereas, for some cheap delivery services, their limited understanding of the country comes primarily from watching the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, or from the resumption of the Russian Grand Prix (for the first time in a century) at the Sochi Autodrom in the same year. Not to mention the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Such events have in fact triggered a significant increase in haulage to Russia and back, however much Sochi-bound cargo from the UK to Russia is heavily linked to the demands of tourism; sited on the Black Sea coastline, and with a sub-tropical climate, Sochi is the country’s largest resort city.
Cheap pallet delivery forms the bulk of our road freight to Russia; 120×100 and 120×80 centimetre base pallets are the standard, but we don’t just handle these euro/uk export pallet sizes. Oversized pallets, printers pallets, plastic pallets, cages/crates/skids, and of course the usual wooden pallets too! We also carry boxes or cartons of manufactured goods, in fact almost any exports to the Russian Federation, or imports from Russia to the UK. We ship directly to and from the customs terminal in the capital Moscow, and from there local cross-country carriers reach out to other big cities such as Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Kazan, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Rostov-na-Donu, Ufa, Volgograd, Perm, Krasnoyarsk, Voronezh, Saratov, and so on – and to smaller towns and villages too – for those deliveries where others fear to tread!
Russia is located in northern Eurasia; from north-west to south-east, it has land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both via the exclave of Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia and North Korea. The other “half” of Russia has a continuous coastline starting from the Sea of Japan in the south-east, and ending with the Barents Sea in the north-west.
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.
