Our Swiss business and commercial services are fast and efficient. We have made a name for ourselves, offering competitive and affordable freight delivery thanks to our expert knowledge of Switzerland and road freight services running to and from the country. The way we work means that we aim to lighten your load and ensure the stress-free transit of your goods is maintained even in post-Brexit times. With our vast range of services, unbeatable prices and an easy to navigate booking system, we make it easy to meet delivery deadlines with freight to Switzerland.
After all, Switzerland is only about 550 miles from Dover, the UK port through which much road freight headed for central Europe flows. Depending on the exact route taken, that is a similar distance from Dover to Dundee on the east coast of Scotland. Indeed, given that there are some excellent roads that connect Calais and Dunkirk in northern France to Switzerland, it can often be the fastest and most efficient option to send goods to and from the country by tried and tested road haulage routes.
As B2B specialists, we are able to help UK exporters to fine-tune their logistical operations with numerous locations in western Europe. This includes all parts of Switzerland, not just the major urban centres, like Geneva and Zurich, but lesser-known parts of the country, such as Chur, Grindelwald, Winterthur or Sion, for example. Along with our customs clearance expertise that can be extremely handy when shipping to Switzerland via EU countries, like France and Germany, our logistical know-how will often come to the fore, too, ensuring shipments are not unduly delayed en route.
A good example of the way we work when shipping to Switzerland is to keep in contact with our driving teams as they make their way to the Alps. If there are hold-ups in the UK, for example, then it is often possible to re-route a Swiss delivery via Portsmouth instead of Dover. Equally, if the main route to Switzerland through France, via the A26, isn’t moving fast enough, then we can inform our driver to proceed via Stuttgart in Germany. When shipping to Switzerland commercially, all of these decisions are taken in the background so British exporters won’t have to worry about them. It is all a part of the service at Barrington Freight.
