Officially classed as the UK’s busiest container port, thousands of consignments pass through Felixstowe every single day. 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 of 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 home, 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?

This is exactly why you should consider Barrington Freight as a customs clearance agent for imports via Felixstowe. We have the professional expertise to draw upon that will make all the difference when your goods arrive in the UK.
