As one of the two major cargo docks on the Humber estuary, the Port of Immingham sees in the regions of 54 million tonnes of cargo passing through during a busy year, making it one of the UK’s most noteworthy sites for British importers. The port has multiple roll-on, roll-off berths so it can handle plenty of freight being imported to the UK from continental Europe – and elsewhere – via road haulage carriers. Any business that has arranged for goods it has purchased from overseas suppliers to enter the UK through Immingham will benefit from a professional customs clearance agency with knowledge of Immingham port acting on their behalf.
Thankfully, this is exactly the sort of experience and professional expertise that Barrington Freight can offer. We have all of the necessary licensing requirements with countries that export goods to the UK, including those in the European Union and the Far East. Not only does this allow us to undertake customs clearance work on behalf of British importers, but our licenses are subject to regular review, too. Some countries have stringent rules that need to be followed and without keeping up with the latest regulations, licenses can be revoked. Why risk getting your customs clearance work wrong and facing problems with future imports via Immingham or even falling foul of HMRC inspections of your consignments as they arrive in the UK?
