Recently reckoned to be the sixth largest exporter and tenth largest importer in the world, it is no surprise that freight to South Korea continues to grow in line with their “tiger” economy.
We carry business / commercial cargo only UK to / from South Korea. For personal goods, house moves and car shipping we recommend our partners Anglo Pacific
Although FCL / Full container loads (both 20ft and 40ft containers) contribute the bulk of our work, Barrington Freight are also able to act as freight forwarders to this East Asian peninsular for pallet shipping, LCL / Less than a container load; and also for pallets to South Korea, and for groupage shipping on general sea cargo from the UK to South Korea as well. Your shipment or container to South Korea is safe with us!
We are a family-run business, and take pride in our experienced and professional staff. You will deal with one named friendly representative from start to finish, whether providing affordable international container shipping, or groupage services; and efficiently keeping you updated on all matters regarding your sea freight to South Korea.
Express international shipping is available for your urgent shipments, with fast transit times to transport your cargo from the UK to South Korea – over 5,500 miles! If you have onward distribution requirements, our local agents may offer haulage by rail or road throughout the peninsular; especially covering the capital Seoul and main cities of Busan, Incheon, Daegu, Daejeon, Gwangju, Ulsan, Suwon, Changwon, Goyang, Seongnam, Yongin, Bucheon and Ansan. South Korean freight distribution benefits greatly from an advanced transport network.
UK news programs concentrate on the tension between South and North Korea, but in truth there is much more to this East Asian peninsular. The popular culture (often known as the Korean Wave) is spreading beyond Asia and even to the youth of Latin America, the Middle East, and North Africa, especially via a proliferation of Korean pop music videos on YouTube.
However, K-pop is only one aspect of this phenomenon, with K-dramas, the language, technology (e.g. smartphones and cars), animated comics and films, and cuisine all contributing.This has led to a boom in tourism, making it the 20th most visited country in the world (11.1 million foreign tourists visited in 2012).
Technologically, South Korea is very advanced. It is emerging as an exporter of Nuclear Reactors, it has the fastest broadband services in the world, it hosts the fourth largest car maker (Hyundai-Kia), as well as Samsung Electronics and LG. This helped it completely avoid recession during the recent global economic downturn, and it continues to trade its way to further growth year by year.
South Korea is located in East Asia.
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.
