Despite the recent loss of Crimea to the Russian Federation, and fighting in the eastern regions of Luhansk and Donetsk, road freight to Ukraine remains largely unaffected in the rest of the country. Even in troubled regions, the situation regarding haulage to Ukraine can change day-to-day. So if you have exports to “Ukrayina”, don’t hesitate to ring Barrington Freight on 01268 525 444; we are the first-choice freight forwarder to Ukraine!
We carry business / commercial cargo only, UK to / from Ukraine.
Our economy groupage service is famed for fast reliable shipping of business-to-business groupage to Ukraine; we regularly despatch trucks and trailers of consolidated shipments of Ukrainian freight from the UK, direct to the customs terminal in Kiev (the capital). From this customs depot, local carriers handle distribution logistics to other cities and towns including Kharkiv, Odessa, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Kryvyi Rih, Mykolaiv, Vinnytsia, Kherson, Poltava, Lviv, Chernihiv, Cherkasy and others. Depending on the latest situation, it may be that local couriers can reach disputed areas such as Donetsk, Luhansk, Mariupol, Makiivka, Sevastopol, Simferopol and Horlivka.
Although the Ukraine road system has been upgraded little since the Soviet era, there are 109 miles of “proper” motorway between Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk (part of the E105), and also a short stretch of the M03 between Kiev and Boryspil. Road freight remains the most popular cheap delivery service both for European haulage and transport companies undertaking haulage to Ukraine, and for local carriers right across the country. For the best prices on cargo from the UK to Ukraine, just try our online QuickQuote – be prepared for a very pleasant surprise in respect of our cheap international shipping costs!
As a major freight forwarder to Ukraine, our cheap courier services are also the most reliable! Our experienced and knowledgeable Ukraine freight advisors will recommend the best freighting solution for your unusual / difficult loads; we don’t just do cheap pallet delivery, we are happy to provide bespoke haulage to Ukraine for your heavy machinery or awkwardly packed manufactured goods too. We handle all the customs documentation as well!
Ukraine imports mostly oil and natural gas, machinery and equipment, and chemicals. Its main import partners are former Soviet Republic countries, but China and the European Union (especially Germany and Poland) have been also gaining significance in recent years. Ukrainian exports are mainly steel, coal, fuel products, chemicals, machinery and transport equipment, plus grains like barley, corn and wheat. More than 60% of their exports are to other former Soviet Republics countries with Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus being the most important. Other frequent destinations include Turkey and China. UK exports to Ukraine (and UK imports back from Ukraine) may not be the largest contributors to the balance of trade of either country – but they are certainly important to all of us here – with Barrington Freight to Ukraine!
We carry all sorts of freight to Ukraine, though of course the majority is carried on euro/uk export pallets; these attract the best discounts on groupage to Ukraine. Part loads and full loads of 120×100 and 120×80 centimetre based pallets to Ukraine are always welcome, as are cartons/boxes/crates/cages and shrink or stretch wrapped consignments, whether palletised or not! We also deliver fragile, secure or time-sensitive cargo from the UK to Ukraine, and we have a great reputation as a thoroughly trusted European haulage and transport company.
Some European hauliers only send the occasional vehicle to Eastern Europe, but as an independent freight forwarder to Ukraine we choose from a number of specialist European couriers; this ensures we achieve the fastest departures and best shipping prices on your exports to Ukraine. All our GB-UA road freight is always tracked non-stop from departure to our destination at the Kiev customs terminal, so you can be sure your freight to Ukraine will always be safe in our hands.
The landscape of Ukraine is mainly fertile plains or steppes, and plateaus; they are crossed by major rivers including the Dnieper, Seversky Donets, Dniester and Southern Buh which flow into the Black Sea or the Sea of Azov, whilst the Danube delta forms the border with Romania. Geographically, the country has both lowlands and highlands, with the Carpathian Mountains in the west and Crimean Mountains in the extreme south. Whilst the south has a subtropical climate with just 16 inches of rain a year and warm summers, the west typically suffers 47 inches rain and cold winters. But fear not, our “red hot” cheap courier services will speed between Ukraine and your pick-up or drop-off across the UK, wherever your freight to/from Ukraine lies in that country.
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.
