With many years of experience in customs clearance work around the world, Barrington Freight has the know-how and manpower resources to cope with the needs of all British exporters using the Port of Hull. We have in-depth knowledge of the workings at the port as well as how to complete export declarations correctly. As such, we constitute the ideal choice for UK firms exporting to Europe with road and sea freight today.
The Port of Hull, which is situated on the north bank of the Humber Estuary, lies just about 20 miles inland from the North Sea. Ro-ro ferry services operate at the port, sailing multiple times a week to two European destinations, making Hull a very useful one for British exporters. After all, the port is connected by convenient dual carriageway road links to the motorway network, including connections to the M62 and onward to the M18 and M1. This means that virtually any production facility or distribution centre in the country can make use of the Port of Hull for exports by road and sea to continental Europe and beyond.
With ferries departing for Rotterdam Europort in the Netherlands and Zeebrugge in Belgium, Hull serves exporters who have customers in both western and eastern Europe well. However, planned exports can be delayed by customs officials when they arrive at the port unless their clearance paperwork is in good order. Many firms that do not export to Europe regularly can struggle with the skills needed to carry out this vital declaration work. This is why having an expert in customs clearance work can be so beneficial and this is exactly the sort of high-quality service you can expect from the customs clearance agents at Barrington Freight.
Because the customs clearance agents at Barrington Freight help exporters to get their paperwork in good order every day of the week, there is already a wealth of experience you can draw upon with us. Rather than attempting to complete the often complex export documentation that customs officials at Hull will need to see yourself, it is simpler, easier and more efficient to have us carry out this work instead.
Not only should you find that your goods are much less likely to be held up at the border while an error is sorted out or clarifications with the paperwork are asked for, but our streamlined approach should mean you save money, too. This is because, with Barrington Freight, you will only pay for the services you need and won’t need to employ your own customs clearance expert in-house.
