Custom Clearance Import to Grangemouth

Helpfully located about halfway between the two main cities in Scotland – Glasgow and Edinburgh – the port is served by the M9 motorway but is also linked very effectively to the UK’s rail network. The port itself boasts 13 straddle carriers, a pair of gantry cranes, an integrated operating system, half a million square feet of warehousing facilities and dedicated general cargo berths.

As such, Grangemouth Port accounts for about 150,000 container movements per year. Although the majority of these are exports – Grangemouth accounts for about a third of Scotland’s GDP in terms of the cargo passing through it to overseas destinations – the port is a significant one for importers, too. However, British importers can find that their consignments are delayed at the port while importation checks are carried out. This is often down to a lack of knowledge and expertise on the part of the importing firm. The best way to avoid such hold-ups caused by customs officials is to place your trust in an experienced customs clearance agency.

At Barrington Freight, we offer these sorts of professional services and have a great deal of knowledge at your disposal for dealing with HMRC officials at Grangemouth Port and elsewhere. Why face difficulties getting your orders into the UK at the final stage of their journey when they may have travelled many thousands of miles on a container vessel only to end up being impounded at the port?
