The air freight operations at London Stansted (STN) run 24/7 every single day of the year. With a long runway capable of handling the very largest cargo aircraft in the world, the Essex-based airport is one of the most important to UK importers. After all, it offers convenient access to both the Southeast region of the country and the Midlands, where much of the country’s logistical warehousing operations are managed. There are around 55,000 square metres of cargo handling space at the airport and some EU-approved specialist border inspection posts at London Stansted Airport, making this route into the UK one that many British importers prefer.
Anyone considering importing goods with the various air freight operators who use Stansted will need a reliable customs clearance operation for their goods. It is possible to run these internally with an in-house team but doing so can often be prohibitively expensive. On the other hand, the customs clearance agents at Barrington Freight will be able to ensure all of your documents are prepared in advance for when your goods land at Stansted so that they are already in good order for their subsequent HMRC checks.
Whether you need help registering for an EORI number as a first-time importer of goods or would like assistance with freight commodity codes so that customs officials are fully satisfied with the nature of the imported freight, we can help. We have extensive experience in handling customs clearance work throughout the UK – including London Stansted Airport – in a timely and efficient manner. Furthermore, we have the licenses required to work with exporters from trading nations all around the world, so you can turn to us with confidence wherever you are importing from, as well.
Please bear in mind that Barrington Freight is not just a customs clearance agency for Stansted Airport imports but a freight forwarding firm, too. This means that we can look after the entire process of importing goods to the UK from the moment you place an order with your overseas supplier. Operating as a combined service provider, our operations team will be able to arrange consignment deliveries in a cost-effective manner along with other services like air freight insurance and delivery tracking. Once your goods arrive at Stansted, we’ll have prepared your HMRC declarations to make sure there are no unnecessary setbacks caused by customs officers due to incomplete or incorrect paperwork. After that, we can also arrange for their onward journey to you if wanted.
