As part of our end-to-end logistics solution, we can take care of the customs formalities, declarations and clearance on your behalf to ensure the rapid transport of goods without border delays.
Since leaving the EU at the start of this year the UK has been operating a full external border affecting the movement of goods between the UK and EU. Every shipment into and out of the country now requires customs declaration and the associated customs clearance.
As one of Europe’s leading time-critical logistics providers, we are one of only a few freight forwarders in the UK now qualified to provide the government’s ‘Clearance on Wheels’ service. This simplification procedure has proven invaluable in risk mitigation post Brexit.
Having already achieved full AEO status across the group, our Faster Clearances by Priority Customs service minimises delays by allowing our customers to have their goods cleared within Priority Freight’s own premises, negating the need to attend the public inland border facility and face potential delays.
Early in the Brexit negotiations, we recognised the need to make a substantial investment in training existing employees on customs clearance requirements and recruited many experienced customs clearance specialists. By handling the freight forwarding logistics, authorisations and storage solutions in house, Priority Freight ensures that customers continue to receive seamless cross-border transport and meet even the tightest of deadlines.
We have External Temporary Storage Facilities (ETSF) and Customs Warehouse at our secure premises in Dover, Heathrow and Coventry, with associated customs procedures in place both for import and export. Our Customs Warehouse and ETSF in Dover is located inside our secure truck parking facility, conveniently just three miles from the Port of Dover. Goods may be processed on route, at Dover, Heathrow or Coventry, avoiding port congestion.
Entrusting Priority Freight to manage your customs requirements will mean a faster clearance with lower costs and fewer delays whilst mitigating disruptions to your supply chain.
