In terms of freight, London Heathrow Airport (LHR) is one of the busiest air hubs in Europe. It handles the most cargo of any airport in the UK and the airport’s owners now have a strategy in place that favours so-called e-freight practices to make much of the paperwork required for air freight computerised. Perhaps more importantly, London Heathrow Airport is one of the most used for importers of high-value goods. Indeed, around a third of the UK’s international trade in high-value items outside of the EU passes through it. As such, the air hub is of great importance to both exporters and importers.

Because Heathrow Airport is such a crucial one for firms that import from overseas suppliers, running a sound customs clearance operation there is essential. Although some importers will carry out their own customs clearance declarations, many more will seek the professional guidance that only a customs clearance agency can offer. At Barrington Freight, we offer just these sorts of services which can be invaluable whether you have imported goods many times before or are using air freight for the first time via Heathrow. Our customs clearance agents have all of the necessary licenses to deal with inbound air freight from international suppliers the world over. What’s more, our in-depth knowledge of the way HMRC operates at Heathrow will help to ensure your goods are not held up needlessly once they are unloaded and readied for their customs inspection.

In short, we can help you whether you are importing goods from the EU or any part of the world where you can find suppliers ready to ship to the UK. We’ll assist you with the declarations that are required for imports, such as which commodity codes to use for the class of goods you are importing. Our customs clearance work at Heathrow is managed in an efficient way so your goods can continue their onward travel into the UK without being delayed while problems at the border are sorted out.
