When you need a reliable freight forwarder to a country which straddles both Europe and Asia, be sure to use the professionals – Barrington Freight to Turkey. We are an independent family-run business, with the capacity to handle every Turkish cargo large or small, and the knowledge and expertise to get the very best deal on your import from and exports to Turkey.
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Turkey. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
We welcome groupage to Turkey; we consolidate your small consignments of Euro/UK export pallets or cartons together for economical haulage to Turkey, along with similar Turkish shipments from other customers. This ensures our cheap pallet delivery services are very competitive. Also, as an independent, we are not tied to specific European couriers – we can usually book your groupage cargo from the UK to Turkey on the next carrier leaving for the region. So look no further for your economy groupage services!
We also handle full loads by truck and/or trailor to “Turkiye” (as it is known in their own language); and awkward shapes and sizes can also be accommodated by our tailored solutions for special haulage to Turkey. If you have an unusual shipment for Turkey, try us first! Together with our local partner terminal in Istanbul, we ensure your fragile/secure or time-sensitive cargo is carried by reliable trans-European haulage and transport companies. It will be available for collection from the Istanbul customs depot in just 7-9 days!
Part loads are welcomed too, as you would expect from a major freight forwarder to Turkey. Our cheap courier services carry boxes, cages, crates, and other export packed cargo; machinery and manufactured goods are common business-to-business consignments, and all sorts of printers pallets / plastic pallets / wooden pallets are accepted as road freight to Turkey.
Tourism is a major industry in Turkey, and is centred on historic Istanbul and the seaside resorts of the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts (nicknamed the “Turkish Riviera”); major resort towns include Bodrum, Fethiye, Marmaris, Kusadasi, Cesme, Didim and Alanya. Cultural attractions include Ephesus, Troy, Pergamon, Konya, and the ruined cities and landscapes of Cappadocia. With the UK contributing around 2.5 million tourist visits a year, many of these places are well known to Brits – and this helps fuel the demand for British consumer and luxury goods, which form a frequent cargo from the UK to Turkey.
Other cities include Ankara (the capital), Izmir, Bursa (capital of the former Ottoman Empire), Adana, Gaziantep, Antalya, Kayseri, Mersin and Eskisehir, to name just a few. Road transport links to Istanbul are excellent from most parts of the country, with over 19,000km of dual carriageways and motorways; collection of your Turkish shipment from the Istanbul customs terminal is therefore both convenient and simple.
Turkey imports mainly machinery, chemicals, semi-finished goods, fuels and transport equipment; in 2014, monthly British exports to Turkey averaged around US$480 million, or nearly US$6 billion a year! No wonder that our GB-TR cheap delivery services are in high demand.
Turkey is not a member of the European Union, so customs paperwork is required for all shipments to Turkey. Our friendly team are experts on the formalities of sending cargo from the UK to Turkey, so if you are in any doubt as to the paperwork required, we will be more than happy to advise when you make a booking with Barrington Freight to Turkey. As the knowledgeable pan-European hauliers, we are always happy to help.
With special discounts for stackable loads of euro/uk pallets, 120×80 and 120×100 centimetre base pallets attract very cheap international shipping costs.

So too is our full load and part load haulage to Turkey, so whatever your required logistics, why not give us a call on 01268 525 444?

Turkey lies mainly in Western Asia, with the Black Sea forming most of its northern boundary. Clockwise to the east and south-east lay Georgia, Armenia, the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan, Iran, Iraq and finally Syria; the Mediterranean Sea forms the southern and south-western boundaries. To the north-west, the Sea of Marmara and the Straits of Bosporus and Dardanelles separate Eastern Thrace (the only part of Turkey actually in Europe) from the rest of the country. To the further north-west lie Greece and Bulgaria.
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.
