Whilst Turkmen consignments may not be the largest contributor to our Central Asian shipping operations, road freight to Turkmenistan is nevertheless important to us; exports to this Turkic State can include heavy construction equipment, machinery, manufactured goods, iron and steel pipes, and vehicles.
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to Turkmenistan. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
We are one of the very few freight forwarders to Turkmenistan who can properly handle large and heavy loads of awkward shape and size; so if you are looking for a reliable trans-continental courier for an unusual consignment, then just give us a ring on 01268 525 444! Fragile / secure or time-sensitive cargo from the UK to Turkmenistan is another one of our specialist Asian freight services, so we have pretty well everything covered.
Groupage to Turkmenistan is also a favourite; our economy groupage delivery service provides cheap pallet shipping, and covers cartons / boxes / crates and packing cases too. Small consignments of groupage are consolidated with other similar shipments of freight to Turkmenistan, so they can be sent on a single truck or trailer, and hence minimise your international freight shipping costs.
Multiple Euro or UK export pallets benefit from competitive part-load and full-load rates on haulage to Turkmenia (as the country was previously known). Our cheap delivery services offer some very unusual discounts specially for 120×100 and 120×80 centimetre base pallets – and particularly so for stackable pallets to Turkmenistan!
Your exports to the Turkmen Republic are safe in our hands. We are an independent family-run business, and pride ourselves on top-quality service with a friendly face. Knowledgeable and experienced, we are happy to advise on your shipping conundrums; and for first-timers, we offer guidance in respect of the commercial invoices and customs paperwork required for all cargo from the UK to Turkmenistan.
With 80% of Turkmenistan being covered by the Karakum and Sundukly Deserts, and mountain ranges to the South and West, the country is not heavily populated. Almost the size of Spain, just over 5 million inhabitants live in this arid environment where temperatures can reach 40-50oC and dust storms are common. But it isn’t all bad news – courtesy of government subsidies, residents enjoy low housing and utility / telephone / travel costs, plus FREE petrol, electricity, gas, water and salt!
How come? The country has energy aplenty; the fourth-largest gas reserves in the world, 700 million tons of oil reserves, and it is also a net exporter of electricity. The gas fields are concentrated in the provinces of Lebap, Ahal and Mary in the South-Eastern half of the country, with the other two provinces Dasoguz and Balkan lying to the North-West.
Turkmenistan cities include Akdepe, Amydery’a, Archman, Asgabat (Ashgabat), Atamyrat (Kerki), Babadaykhan, Balkanabat (Nebitdag), Bayramaly, Bekdash, Bugdayly, Buzmey’in, Byzylarbat, Celeken, Chagyl, Charjew, Darganata, Darvaza, Dashkuduk, Dasoguz, Deynau, Ekerem, Esenguly, Gumdag, Gusgy, Gyzylgaya, Kaka, Kerki, Koneurgench, Lebap, Mary, Mukry, Murgap, Sakar, Sandykgacy, Sarahs, Sharlawuk, Tagta, Tagtabazar, Tejen, Turkmenabat (Charjew), Turkmenbasy, Yerbent and Yoloten.
Haulage to Turkmenistan will be delivered to the local customs warehouse in the capital Ashgabat. In the central south of the country, this convenient location permits collection or onward logistics to be arranged at leisure. The transit time for groupage to Turkmenistan (and of course other Turkmen freight) is typically 22-28 days.
Some freight forwarders to Central Asia incur delays whilst waiting to fill their trucks with groupage; others may not have the capacity to make regular runs, or carry your full load. Not so Barrington Freight to Turkmenistan! As independents, we are not contractually tied to a single European haulage and transport company – we deal with many reliable trans-continental couriers, ensuring the earliest possible departures for your consignment.
We can ship most freight to Turkmenistan; printers / plastic / wooden pallets, whether of 120×100 or 120×80 centimetre base; urgent business shipments; unusual or difficult cargo from UK to “TM”; indeed almost all exports to Turkmenistan. Ring us today for the best quote on our economy groupage service, for competitive rates on our cheap courier service for part loads and full loads, or for the very best tailored service on your custom haulage to Turkmenistan.
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.
