Since joining the EU in 2004, road freight to Slovenia or back has grown and grown – at least in part due to the fact that customs documentation is no longer needed for cargo from the UK to “Republika Slovenija”. As major freight forwarders to Slovenia, Barrington Freight are at the centre of the European haulage industry – including cheap Slovenian pallet delivery, general groupage to Slovenia, bespoke transport of awkward or difficult loads, express services and more.
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Slovenia. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
The capital city of Ljubljana is our main local distribution point. Having Slovene partner depots with “men on the ground” provides us with a great logistics network and local expertise. All this adds up to an affordable delivery service that is the envy of our competitors; your exports and imports to and from Slovenia reach out to every city town and village including Ljubljana, Maribor, Celje, Kranj, Velenje, Koper / Capodistria, Novo Mesto, Ptuz, Trbovlje, Kamnik, Jesenice, Domzale, Nova Gorica, Skofja Loka, Murska Sobota, and Izola amongst others.
We have long been shipping Slovene haulage to the five traditional regions of Carinthia, Styria, Slovene Littoral, Prekmurje and Carniola – the latter is further comprised of Upper Carniola, Inner Carnolia and Lower Carniola. Well served by motorways (“avtocesta”) A1 through A5 and expressways (“hitra cesta”) H1 through H7, we can reach almost any part of the country in record time – but unfortunately local roads to more remote areas can be in poor repair. This is where the local expertise of partner depots really counts, so we can ensure your haulage to Slovenia arrives safely and in good time.
Our express services speed the 1,000 mile journey, and with trucks and trailers leaving every day we ensure your groupage to Slovenia gets there “like yesterday”. UK exports to Slovenia include machinery and transport equipment, manufactured goods, chemicals, fuels and lubricants, and food. Euro and uk standard export pallets are the bulk of our groupage to Slovenia, whether they are plastic / printers / wooden pallets, stackable or non-stackable, shrink-wrapped or stretch-wrapped; whatever your palletised haulage to Slovenia – we can handle it. As an independent freight forwarder to Slovenia, we call upon a number of reliable European couriers, thus ensuring prompt collection and delivery of your road freight to Slovenia on a daily basis.
Slovenia’s exports include electrical machinery, road vehicles, chemicals, and chemical products, footwear, furniture, food, and cigarettes.
We have a complete range of vehicles available to carry exports from Slovenia back to the UK, including trucks with tail lifts for easy pick-up and drop-off if you have no cargo handling facilities of your own.
We also have 7.5 tonners through 17 tonners, and “Mega” trucks / Tautliners / Euroliners. Your business-to-business cargo from Slovenia to the UK or return is safe in our hands, and we are always pleased to handle difficult consignments which other cheap courier services may have declined.
For the very fastest road freight to Slovenia or back, then our flagship express services by dedicated courier van to Europe are the solution! For urgent business-to-business Slovene freight, and depending on the exact location for pick-up and drop-off, we can provide true next day services by dedicated express road freight van. The whole journey takes around 15 hours non-stop, using two-driver teams to minimise the rest breaks. We are one of the few freight forwarders to Slovenia who can offer these secure express European courier vans!
Another express service by dedicated road freight van to Europe is offered, as a 48 hour / 2 day delivery service; your fragile/secure or time-sensitive cargo from the UK to Slovenia or return still benefits from dedicated door-to-door transit in our escort or sprinter vans, but as we can use a single driver with rest breaks this is a somewhat cheaper courier service than the urgent next-day services.
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.
