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.
