Customs Clearance Imports to Felixstowe

In fact, 3.85 million twenty-foot equivalent container units, or TEUs, are handled at the port every year, making the Felixstowe in the top ten container ports in the whole of Europe in terms of capacity. Almost half of Great Britain’s containerised trade passes through the port, so it is of huge significance to both import and export firms.

With so many British businesses now importing goods directly from ports in the Far East nowadays, so much more of the UK’s international trade relies on containerisation. Ocean-going vessels leave ports like Shanghai, Singapore, Busan and Zhoushan on their way to the UK practically every day, many of them bound for Felixstowe. Even ports closer to homes, such as Antwerp and Rotterdam, will tend to send containers to the UK via Felixstowe because of its convenient location on the North Sea.

However, importers who have not prepared their customs declarations properly will often find that their goods are delayed by customs officials at the port. This is why a customs clearance agent with in-depth knowledge of the way Felixstowe Port works can be so beneficial. Why have goods held up unnecessarily while importation documents are sorted out when a good customs clearance operation could get your imports on the road and be used to fulfil orders instead?

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 :)
