Barrington Freight are the preferred freight forwarder to Slovakia for many large importers and exporters, so why look anywhere else when shipping road freight to the Slovak Republic? We offer the most convenient economy groupage services, with groupage to Slovakia leaving daily; as a family-run independent forwarder for haulage to “Slovenska Republika”, we use a number of reliable European haulage and transport companies, to ensure prompt departure of your cargo from the UK to Slovakia.
Please note that the only cargo that we ship to Slovakia is business or commercial cargo. Visit our partners Anglo Pacific for any domestic cargo.
Apart from economy groupage services for cheap pallet delivery, we ship part loads or full loads of Euro and UK export pallets; whether printers/plastic/wooden pallets or boxes, export packed cargo, cages, skids – we handle all your palletised or non-palletised freight to Slovakia. We have express services for your Slovak freight too – including next day services, 48 hours / 2-day services, or 72 hours / 3-day services by truck and trailer – with dedicated courier vans to Europe for really fast delivery of urgent cargo from the UK to Slovakia or back.
Road freight to “Slovensko” is our speciality, and we are pleased to handle difficult shipments – including big/tall/long/high/cubic/heavy manufactured goods or machinery, awkward shapes and sizes, timed collections and deliveries, restricted access, and even consignments which other cheap delivery companies may have declined. We have the correct vehicles for all types of haulage to Slovakia and we work with experienced local partner depots to overcome any specific problems with remote destinations or loading and unloading facilities.
Here at Barrington we offer flagship express services by dedicated courier van to Europe. A non-stop journey by dedicated express road freight van can take just 15 hours from London to Bratislava, so with a two-driver team (no rest breaks!) we have true next day freight services!
Our express services for your Slovak road freight are far more convenient than air freight to Slovakia, as a result of the fact that no special documentation is required to drive cargo into the country due to Slovakia’s EU membership, which has been in place since 2004. Apart from urgent next day services, we can use single drivers with rest breaks to provide a 48 hour / 2-day service for your fragile, secure or time-sensitive cargo from the UK to Slovakia or back. If you’re looking for a dedicated door-to-door service, we also offer this too, so you can make sure that your time windows are kept to at both ends of the journey.

Of course, groupage to Slovakia forms the bulk of our shipments. Slovak freight on standard 120×100 or 120×80-centimetre base pallets benefit from the cheapest international shipping costs, especially if stackable.
The automobile industry is one of the key areas in which we deliver cargo to and from Slovakia. There are a great number of vehicle assembly plants based in Slovakia, with the likes of Volkswagen, Peugeot Citroen, and Kia all operating in cities such as Bratislava, Trnava and Silnia. The electronics sector is also highly popular in Slovakia with Nitra and Galanta acting as hubs for some of the products offered by Sony and Samsung.
As a landlocked country, road freight to Slovakia can take a significant amount of time, as our drivers must navigate through the likes of Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Ukraine, depending on the route taken. At Barrington Freight, our services are in high demand due to the exceptional quality of the air freight services we provide. Our drivers have an in-depth knowledge of a huge number of locations in Slovakia and are well versed in navigating the country’s terrain in order to ensure that your cargo arrives at its destination on time, and in one piece.
We ensure that our driving team consists of two drivers, so your cargo will arrive without being delayed by rest breaks. This is particularly important when it comes to time sensitive packages. No matter the service you require, whether you’re opting for express air freight to Slovakia, or a more budget option, we can provide you with the services that you require. No matter the area in Slovakia, whether a major city or a remote village, you can be certain that your cargo will arrive when it is supposed to.
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.
