Custom Clearance Export from Felixstowe

All exporters based in the UK must make export declarations and be registered to do so with an EORI number when shipping goods via the Port of Felixstowe to any international destination. This includes the 16 or so sailings per week to the Port of Rotterdam from Felixstowe because the Netherlands is, of course, an EU member state.

Bear in mind that completing customs paperwork is often technical and can lead to unnecessary hold-ups at the border if it is not fully complete or contains errors. That’s why having expert customs clearance agents, like Barrington Freight, complete your paperwork for you can be so beneficial. We’ll make sure that you have made the right declarations in terms of commodity coding and so on so that customs officials have no reason to delay your shipment(s) as they make their way onto container vessels or truck-carrying ferry services.

We will handle the technical side of your paperwork including the master reference number that will be needed so that your shipment can arrive without any hold-ups in your expected schedule, thereby helping to keep your customers in Europe and beyond happy.

Customs Clearances for Sea and Road Exports at Felixstowe

Given how much trade goes on between the UK and the rest of the world through the Port of Felixstowe, it is important to make sure that your goods are ready to be shipped onward as soon as they arrive there. We will advise you of what you need to do if any export licences or certificates will need to accompany your consignment given the rules that may apply to certain classes of goods.

We also have extensive experience with the operations of customs officials at the Port of Felixstowe as well as the National Export System that is used by exporters to notify HMRC of exports. We’ll be able to advise you when the government’s Customs Supervised Export (CSE) simplification system is appropriate to use and when it is not. In short, we will make sure your goods continue their onward journey by road as soon as possible by getting them over the North Sea rapidly in the first place.

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

As well as working as experts in customs clearance services at Felixstowe, Barrington Freight operates as a top-rate freight forwarding firm. As such, you can take advantage of our operations team’s expertise in both organising shipments via the port and clearing them to pass through the checks that will be made at the border. Because both services are carried out by just one team, your exports will be handled directly by us at every stage, helping you to save both time and money.

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 :)

Fantastic service from Barrington Freight. It was our first time exporting goods from the UK and it was very reassuring to have them manage the shipment. The process was made easy and hassle free and Simon was always quick to respond to any queries. I would highly recommend.
