EU Road Freight FTL / LTL

Want to import or export goods from an EU country and need fast transits? Our EU Road Freight services cover the whole of Europe for FTL and LTL shipments. As a trusted and reliable shipping company, Good Logistics can transport goods of all kinds, including Ambient, Chilled, OOG (Out of Gauge) and Frozen Cargo.

If you are looking for a cost-effective freight method that can meet the demands of EU businesses and online retailers, contact our highly experienced team of professionals who will be able to coordinate your Road Freight shipments with ease to make shipping to Europe from the UK and vice versa a complete breeze.

EU Groupage

If you want to import/export goods from an EU country but do not have enough cargo to fill a container or truckload, our EU Groupage services are the perfect solution. You can reduce your shipping costs and handling fees by sharing space with other customers and only paying for the space you use. This is an excellent and cost-effective service option that will safely get your goods to their required destination, with a particular focus on Groupage from Spain, Portugal and Italy.

EU Customs Clearance

Changes to import and export requirements post-Brexit mean that now, more than ever, customs regulations can be difficult to navigate. To obtain customs clearance, you must secure the correct EORI number, state the preferential origin of goods and fulfil other key requirements when shipping from EU countries or Northern Ireland and vice versa. We understand that this can be daunting for any business, which is why it is important that you use an experienced partner to mitigate these issues and ensure the successful cross-border transit of your goods. To protect our customers from stress and worry, Good Logistics will complete all the EU Customs processes, such as paying customs duties and making customs declarations. Our AEO accreditation means that you can put your trust in us to meet all your needs and provide an excellent service whenever you ship goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland or EU member states.

EU Short Sea

For European cross-border shipments that are not highly time-sensitive, our Short Sea services are a fantastic option. EU Short Sea can help you avoid delays at ports, which can in turn remove the risk of supply chain delays. Moreover, Short Sea services may release fewer CO2 emissions than other freight methods when shipping goods to and from the European Union. As a result, you could reduce your environmental impact with this mode of transport.

“Our EU Team have vast knowledge and a wealth of experience handling European Shipments. We can offer a wide range of supply chain solutions to ensure all your logistics needs are met with excellent results.”

    Frequently asked questions

    Which EU countries are your services covered by?

    For our EU Road Freight FTL/LTL and EU Customs services, we offer full coverage of Europe.

    Our other services cover more specific EU countries. Please visit our EU services pages for more information. Alternatively,  if you wish to find out more about sending parcels and goods to a particular EU country, please contact a member of our team.

    I don’t have enough cargo to fill a container, what would you advise?

    As a leading freight forwarder, our EU services offer fantastic Groupage, LTL and LCL options, allowing you to share container space with other customers. This means that you only have to pay for the space you use, rather than a full container load.

    You can read more about these services by visiting our EU Groupage, EU Road Freight and EU Short Sea pages.

    What is the most cost-effective freight method for European Imports and Exports?

    Our EU Short Sea shipping service is likely to be the most cost-effective option as it is generally cheaper than other freight methods. However, if your shipment is time-critical, Road Freight is the better choice as we offer fast transits of 1–4 days. The freight method you need will also depend on what you are shipping and where from.

    If you are unsure as to which freight method to use when making international shipments to and from Great Britain or your own country, please contact our team for more detailed information.
