London Heathrow Airport (LHR) remains one of the busiest airports in the world for both passenger services and commercial cargo distribution. As such, Heathrow is among the most important hubs in the UK for air freight. However, British firms that would like to export goods via the international airport at Heathrow will often face difficulties in getting their consignments onto air freight services if they do not have a streamlined customs clearance operation in place. This is exactly what we offer at Barrington Freight, so you can turn to us with confidence with all aspects of modern customs clearance work for exports via Heathrow Airport.
For example, if you are planning on shipping goods to the United States via Heathrow, we will be able to ensure that your customs clearance declarations are in good order before HMRC officials inspect your shipment. The same goes for exports to European Union countries as well as further afield. We will ensure that the online declarations that must be made nowadays match the accompanying paperwork and that there is no reason customs officers will be able to find that causes your goods to be delayed at Heathrow.
Please bear in mind that even very small issues with customs clearances can cause major headaches at Heathrow today. Anything that customs officers don’t think is right – even technical matters – can lead to significant hold ups. In the worst-case scenario, your export goods might even be impounded indefinitely. At Barrington Freight, we can help you to avoid all of these potential pitfalls and obtain a smooth process for all of your outgoing shipments.
