The shipping of freight to the State of Qatar has grown in recent years, with imports rising to around US$30 billion per annum; a healthy 6.4% of that is cargo from the UK to the Arab emirate. It is the world’s richest country per capita – wealth comes from large natural gas reserves, and oil reserves of 25 billion barrels.
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from Qatar. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
Jobs are guaranteed in Qatar, and college education is free. There is no income tax, public services are gratis, and health care is provided by the government. This leaves plenty of disposable income for manufactured goods, which are shipped by the container to Qatar. As a major freight forwarder to the peninsula, we handle pallet delievries, 20ft and 40ft containers, FCL / Full container loads, LCL / Less than a container load, pallets to Qatar, and consolidated groupage shipping too.
The state occupies the small Qatar Peninsula on the north-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. Its sole land border is with Saudi Arabia to the south, the rest of its territory is surrounded by the Persian Gulf, with a narrow strait separating Qatar from the nearby island kingdom of Bahrain. The country is mostly a low barren plain covered with sand, with mild winters and very hot humid summers. With the 2014 FIFA World Cup being played here, England and other chilly nations may well find it very hard going!
Sea freight to Qatar lands at the Gulf Ports of Ras Laffen, Doha and Mesaieed; Doha is also the capital, and is home to 90% of the population. Qatari freight may be destined for onward distribution to the other main cities and towns of Umm Sa’id, Al Wakrah, Al Rayyan, Umm Salal Muhammad, Umm Salal Ali, Al Khuwayr, Ar Ru’ays, Dukhan and Umm Bab.

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.
