International Freight to Shetland Islands

We have many years of experience in organising road freight of a wide range of commercial goods throughout the British Isles including some of the places that in-house logistical teams can frequently struggle with. If you have taken an order from a customer on the Shetland Islands and are wondering what you will need to do to ensure your goods arrive on time and in good condition, then you can turn to us for our expertise and competitive pricing structure. Even firms that are very used to shipping freight to the Shetland Isles will find that we can often beat their current arrangements – both in terms of delivery lead times and in terms of price.

Where Are the Shetland Islands?

The northernmost part of the British Isles, the Shetland Islands are situated in the Atlantic Ocean to the north of Orkney and to the west of Norway.

Road Freight Transit to the shetland islands from the UK

Because our operations team has access to such an extensive team of drivers, we can have your goods collected from any location in the country and ready for their journey north to Shetland. This includes manufacturing firms in Belfast, wholesalers in Bristol, retailers in Bangor and suppliers in Berwick, for example. We will despatch a suitably sized van for smaller consignments of freight to the Shetland Islands that can be packed onto one or two pallets, for example. We also have the larger lorries and trucks needed for bulkier or heavier loads so we will have your firm covered no matter what you need to send.

Despatch Freight to the Shetland Islands Cost-Effectively by Road

Although it is possible to air freight goods to the Shetland Islands, this rarely offers good value for money. Only very light or high-value items make sense to send this way. By contrast, road freight is an extremely cost-effective option for the majority of commercial goods. We will typically send them via Thurso to Kirkwall and then to Lerwick, Shetland’s main port, beyond. From there, your goods can be sent on to any location they need to get to throughout the archipelago. We can reach all of the populated islands including Fair Isle, the most southerly of the Shetland Islands.

With Barrington Freight, you can be confident that your commercial delivery to Nesting, Delting, Tingwall or Yell will be handled quickly and efficiently. Given our local knowledge of this part of Scotland, you could not make a finer choice than us as your preferred freight forwarding firm.

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 :)
