    Brexit and Importing Goods from Suppliers in Luxembourg

    Customs checks, potential tariffs and extensive documentation are now required for any import from Luxembourg which was not the case when the UK was in the EU. Today, the accurate classification of goods using Harmonised System (HS) codes is essential to determine applicable duties. Without such compliance with both UK and EU standards, goods may be delayed, fines imposed or, in the worst cases, shipments may be impounded. Barrington Freight’s expertise is on hand to assist UK businesses, thereby ensuring a seamless import process from Luxembourg with most commodity classes. Don’t allow the complexity of the post-Brexit trading landscape prevent you from purchasing imports from Luxembourg when we have the know-how to help.

    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 :)
