Customs Clearances for Exported Goods

At Barrington Freight, we have a wealth of experience to draw upon when it comes to exporting goods out of the UK using air freight services. Although shipping by air is often quicker than other exportation routes, the speed of delivery can be undone by poorly handled customs clearance work. This is why our expertise in this field can prove to be so invaluable to exporters, both large and small.

As Birmingham Airport is located so centrally in the UK, it is one of the most important hubs for air freight for numerous British exporters. Even if they are not located in the West Midlands, many exporting firms will have warehouses in the region since it is one of the central logistical hubs in the British Isles. As such, knowing how to ensure your goods pass through the customs checks that will take place at Birmingham Airport is essential if you want to maintain a speedy and efficient delivery service for your customers.

Since the UK left the European Union, customs inspections prior to goods being loaded onto air freight services at Birmingham Airport have been mandatory for all flights to EU member states. This is also the case for countries outside of the EU, of course. However, if your customs clearance declarations are not quite right, then HMRC officers may hold your goods up while problems are rectified. They also have the power to impound your exports if they see fit. That’s why our expertise in managing all of your customs clearance export paperwork is so useful.

HAVING USED MANY SHIPPERS TO IMPORT OUR GOODS FROM THE USA (NONE OUTSTANDING) I DECIDED THIS TIME TO HAVE A SEARCH AROUND TO SEE IF I COULD FIND A BETTER OPTION. I FOUND BARRINGTON FREIGHT AFTER EMAILING MANY OTHERS, SOME OF THEM (UPS,DHL,FEDEX) SIMPLY TOOK SO LONG TO CONTACT ME, THAT IT BECAME STUPID, SIMON AT BARRINGTON CAME BACK TO ME VIRTUALLY STRAIGHT AWAY WITH A VERY GOOD PRICE, ALSO GOOD SHIPPING TIMES. NOW A SERVICE IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE RESULTS, AND THEY WERE AS GOOD AS THEIR WORD. HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THEM AND SIMON AT BARRINGTON FREIGHT WILL BE THE FIRST PERSON WE GO TO NEXT TIME, WELL DONE!!
