International Freight to Sicily

At Barrington Freight, we have the necessary experience and skills to deal with road freight to Sicily in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. We have an extensive network of van and lorry drivers we can call upon who will drive your goods to the island via France and the Italian mainland. We constantly maintain contact with our drivers as they make progress through continental Europe to ensure we pick the best route to Sicily. 

In some cases, this may mean sending freight to the port city of Palermo from Naples whereas, at other times, getting road freight onto the island via southern Italy and the port of Messina will work out better. There again, the port of Civitavecchia, close to Rome, also provides frequent roll-on/roll-off ferry services to Sicily, so we also use that route when it is appropriate to do so. Rest assured that we will take care when choosing the best route in terms of both the speed of delivery and cost-effectiveness.

Our service means being able to achieve door-to-door deliveries to any location in Sicily. We will collect your consignment(s) from your production facility or warehouse from anywhere in the UK – Belfast, Birmingham, Bearsden or Barry Island – and have them en route to the southern Mediterranean in a short period of time. Freight to Sicily can be unloaded at any location, including Catania, Syracuse, Marsala and Enna, among others. Trust us to make sure they are received in just the same good condition as they left in.

Cost-Effective Road Freight Services to Sicily from the UK

Thanks to our logistical experience with freight forwarding all over Europe, we can make sure that your freight to Sicily is despatched promptly without breaking the bank. Our pricing is always competitive and can often beat other freight services to Sicily by a considerable margin. We have access to modern vans and lorries that will be able to make the journey to Sicily with efficient fuel consumption and, even better, we can also group your shipment for even lower costs

Groupage rates apply when your freight to Sicily is sent on the same truck as other shipments going to similar locations. As such, the fuel and labour costs involved will be diminished thanks to the economy of scale involved.

We regularly deliver 120×100 and 120×80 centimetre base pallets right across the nine provinces of Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Catania, Enna, Messina, Palermo, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani; we frequently visit their capital cities (of the same name).

However, our pick-up and distribution logistics extend to smaller towns and villages including Marsala, Gela, Vittoria, Bagheria, Modica, Acireale, Mazara del Vallo, Misterbianco, Paterno, Alcamo, Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, Sciacca, Monreale, Caltagirone, Licata, Carini, Augusta, Adrano, Canicatti, Favara, Milazzo, Partinico, Castelvetrano, Avola, Mascalucia, Comiso, Aci Catena, Misilmeri, Erice, Niscemi and pretty well everywhere else too!

Our flagship express services may cost a little more, but we guarantee that fragile/secure/time-sensitive cargo achieves next day Sicilian delivery via dedicated express road freight vans. With escort and sprinter vans waiting for your call at local depots across Sicily and the UK – whether you are exporting to or importing from Sicily – we can promise accurately timed collection and delivery promptly across both countries. This is the ideal fast solution for urgent haulage to Sicily, directly from business to business; forget the complexities of air freight to Sicily, apart from the expense it is fraught with airport formalities.

We have two levels of express service by door-to-door dedicated van to Europe: for next day* services we use two-driver teams to prevent undue delays for rest breaks, whilst our cheaper 48-72 hour / 2-3 day service is provided by a single driver.

From Messina port, we take the elevated autostrada along the north of the island towards Palermo, and on to Trapani and Marsala in the far west; or the A18 motorway through Catania and Syracusa to the south, whilst the fast A19 also cuts across the centre of the island from Catania towards Palermo. Ideal for Sicilian distribution!

Shipping to Sicily from the UK

Here at Barrington Freight, we offer B2B services designed to help UK exporters make the most of markets not just in continental Europe but its many islands, as well. This is why, when shipping to Sicily, it can be so advantageous to also turn to us for customs clearance brokerage. If you currently use a customs clearance agent to prepare your EU and HMRC documentation, then why not ask us to combine our freight forwarding service with our customs work instead? We have in-house customs agents who are well-versed in every aspect of shipping from the UK to Sicily by road.

Indeed, when shipping commercial goods to Sicily, it can often be useful to have your customs clearances handled within the same teams as the logistical operation. That’s why our operations team has both freight forwarders and customs clearance professionals in it. We work hand-in-hand to ensure there are no delays to your shipment leaving the UK en route to the EU and no unwanted hold-ups on arrival either. Once your shipment to Sicily has arrived in the EU, it should pass through to Sicily without the need for any further customs inspections, of course. Just ask about this service if you think your company could benefit from it.

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.

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 :)
