Pallet shipping UK: fast transport of freight to and from the United Kingdom

Looking for a haulage company in the UK? Join Quicargo and get access to the best shipping companies in the UK to transport palletized goods. Low shipping costs, great service and quick to order!

✓ Save up to 30%

✓ Certified carriers

✓ Sustainable solution

The freight road transport industry in the UK is valued at nearly 30 billion pounds, with circa 60 thousand active companies and approximately 300 thousand jobs. With these numbers, the island nation is one of the hotspots in terms of road transport in Europe.

Although these numbers are great to see, they say nothing about the lack of efficiency in the logistics industry. In fact, circa 50% of all trucks in the United Kingdom drive around empty.

With Quicargo, your freight will be matched with the empty capacity of shipping companies. By doing so, you will benefit from better shipping quotes, superior service and a sustainable solution.

Pallet shipping UK: how does it work?

For spot transport, you can take advantage of direct quotes. This service is currently only available for shipping from the UK to the Netherlands and for shipping from the Netherlands to the UK.

Create an account on our digital platform. You can then fill in all the necessary details of your order. After this step, you can see the shipping costs. If you are pleased with our quote, you can go ahead and order your shipment. It is that easy!

If we do not offer you a direct spot solution (you can check the availability of your route in the price calculator), for example for shipping from GB to Germany, shipping to France from the UK or for shipping England to Belgium – in that case you can request a quote. You will receive an offer within 1 working day.

As with Brexit, the United Kingdom is on the verge of leaving the EU, arranging deliveries from or to the UK may become more difficult. At Quicargo, we are closely following the situation so as to stay up-to-date with new rules and regulations.

Prepare your road freight for transportation to and from the United Kingdom

It is very important to make sure your cargo is transportation-proof before sending your pallets to the UK or The Netherlands. When your pallets are prepared in the correct way, this allows carriers to deliver your shipment quickly and, most importantly, safely. After all, damaged road freight would be a big waste!
