Custom Clearance Imports to Birmingham Airport

The seventh busiest airport in the UK, it has become increasingly used by British importers. This is often due to the proximity it has too many of the large distribution centres that are located in the Midlands, ideal for onward shipping or splitting up of consignments to fulfil individual customer orders. However, the convenience of the airport’s location and the number of flights it receives from around the world daily do not necessarily mean that cargo will make its way out of the airport swiftly.

This is because all of the right paperwork must be in good order for shipments that have come from overseas to pass through the border controls in place. All too often British importers will fall foul of some customs regulation or declaration they need to make but have not yet completed. This is where a customs clearance agent who knows the airport well can prove to be invaluable. At Barrington Freight, we offer just such professional services to make the process of getting imports through the airport and completing their onward journeys as soon as possible.

Of course, all sorts of mistakes can be made with customs declarations, including mixing up Birmingham International Airport in the UK with Birmingham, Alabama. There again, inexperienced administrators who do not understand all of the rules HMRC expects importers to follow can mix up consignment codes, EORI numbers, VAT declarations and even excise payments.

The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.

Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.

We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)

Fantastic service from Barrington Freight. It was our first time exporting goods from the UK and it was very reassuring to have them manage the shipment. The process was made easy and hassle free and Simon was always quick to respond to any queries. I would highly recommend.
