Custom Clearance Export from Dover

Since the UK left the European Union, goods heading to French ports from Dover must be accompanied by an export declaration. In turn, this must be completed correctly or your goods might be held up at Dover and never make their way onto the ferry service you have booked for their onward travel to Calais, Dunkirk and beyond.

Helpfully, the UK government allows you to make use of a customs clearance agent to complete this often complex administrative exercise on your behalf. This is exactly the sort of professional service we offer to exporters who want to trade with their customers via Dover.

Given that Dover is one of the country’s most well-known trading ports, it often surprises exporters how little space there is at the harbour. Consequently, small problems with paperwork can cause a substantial headache if shipments are delayed at the border instead of being loaded onto ferry services. That’s one of the main reasons why you will want to ensure that all of your export declarations are in good order long before your truck or van gets to the port.

Any business that has an EORI number can complete their own consignment declaration, of course, but outsourcing to experts like Barrington Freight often saves time, money and the hassle that comes if in-house errors are made.

Land and Sea Customs Clearance Export Agents

Because we deal with UK ports all over the country, we know exactly what to do to keep shipments moving from their departure point in the UK and onwards to the European road network via northern France. This means that you won’t need to hire your own customs specialist to handle your shipments. Put simply, instead of keeping your own staff up to date with all the latest regulatory changes, we can act on your behalf as customs agents at Dover so you only need to pay for the services you require when you need them. Why pay to have your own customs agent in-house when you might only make international shipments a few times a month?

Combine Our Freight Forwarding Expertise With Customs Clearance Operations

Please note that Barrington Freight does not just operate as customs clearance agents at the Port of Dover because we also work as freight forwarding professionals. As such, you can choose us to provide both services under one roof. The advantage of doing so is clear. Firstly, our operations team will liaise to ensure that all groupage shipments – one of the most cost-effective ways of getting goods into continental Europe – all have the correct customs declarations regardless of who is exporting them.

We’re friendly, easy to work with, honest and we don’t charge the earth.

We can also assist with your consignment’s onward travel by road from whichever port they arrive in from Dover to their ultimate destination. Feel free to contact us on 01268 525 444 or sales@barringtonfreight.co.uk to discuss how we can improve the speed of your goods in transit through Dover to Europe.

The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.

Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.

We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)
