Perhaps the image in your mind of the Netherlands is all tulips, windmills and wooden clogs – but Holland also has a strong import and export sector that requires foreign trade. Holland is a small Western European country with deep culture and traditions and a population of open-minded and interesting people. The Netherlands location makes it easy to explore and trade with Europe, particularly with neighbouring countries Germany and Belgium being so close and an easy journey with the great road links. It has excellent connections to all the major European capitals via car, bus or train to destinations like Paris, London and Copenhagen. Dutch people and the collective society is also very international and the major cities, including Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Groningen, are international trading hubs. Goods from the UK can easily be sent to any of these destinations quickly and easily via road or air, or even via ferry depending on your requirements.
So even after the split from the European Union, Holland is still a strong trading partner with the UK. Post-Brexit – since 1 January 2021 – all products imported and exported between the Netherlands and the UK need further declaration requirements and border obligations. Before Brexit, there were no such requirements. Now companies trading between countries have different customs conventions- the same as another foreign “third country”, which has caused forwarding freight to have more complications. But it’s not too tricky with an experienced freight forwarder like Barrington Freight. Our organisation includes customs specialists who make sure your consignment fulfils its obligations before sending so there are no avoidable delays.
