If you ship goods overseas by having them pass through the port of London Gateway in southern Essex, then you will want to make sure that there are no problems with the customs inspections that will be made there. This is something Barrington Freight can help with. After all, before any consignments can pass through the port and onto vessels, they will need to undergo HMRC’s processes. If you have not filled out your paperwork properly or something is missing with your declaration, then customs officials can hold your consignment up and not allow it to continue with its onward journey out into the Thames Estuary and beyond.
To avoid potential hold ups and even having goods impounded at London Gateway by officials, it is important to ensure you have a slick customs clearance operation in place for your exports. The trouble with this is – for many exporting firms, at least – is that they do not possess the in-house skills to get this work completed on time or correctly. That’s why appointing Barrington Freight as your customs clearance agent would be so beneficial. We have a wealth of experience in all matters relating to export customs clearances at London Gateway and other major ports in the country.

Our approachable team will deal with each request for customs clearance agency work on a case by case basis to make sure each shipment arrives at London Gateway fully prepared to continue the next leg of its journey with no unwanted downtime at the port side.
