Exporting/Importing from the UK

Exporting/Importing from the UK

From 1st February 2021, all our invoices will be on an Incoterms EXW (Ex Works) basis and an administrative charge of £55 plus VAT (per shipment) will be applicable on all exports requiring UK Customs Declarations. This charge will be automatically added to your invoice.

We recognise the new challenges faced by our customers when exporting their goods from the UK. That’s why we are implementing new services to make the exporting process less complex.

Why not use one of our UK-EU & Global haulage partners to take care of the whole process door to door. They provide competitive haulage rates and incorporate the whole exporting process, including UK customs declarations.
