Organising land and sea haulage from the UK to continental Europe can be conducted through many ports in the eastern and southern parts of the country. However, few ports offer so much choice as Immingham which has sailings to multiple European destinations each week. Services from the port to Rotterdam in the Netherlands are popular but sailings to Cuxhaven in Germany at the mouth of the Elbe provide a more convenient option for consignments that will be heading further east on arrival. In addition, the Port of Immingham has frequent sailings across the North Sea to Scandinavia. The ports of Esbjerg in Denmark, Gothenburg in Sweden and Brevik in Norway are all served by services from Immingham.
Indeed, given that Immingham port is also well-served by the A180 and M180 trunk routes that connect it to the rest of the country, it is hardly surprising that so much British freight is exported through the Humber Estuary. However, all consignments that pass through the port to the European Union must have the right customs paperwork with them or they will inevitably be held up. The same goes for shipments that will pass from Immingham to Brevik which, like the UK, lies outside of the EU.
As an experienced firm with years of know-how in customs clearance work at Immingham port behind us, there is no better place to turn to speed up the flow of your exports. All too often companies that are not experienced with customs clearance export declarations find that even minor errors can cause unnecessary delays with their shipments at the international border. We will make sure that your paperwork is properly submitted so that UK customs officials pass it for clearance onto the many roll-on roll-off ferry services that depart from Immingham each week without having to check consignments more thoroughly or demand time-consuming corrections.
