Because Germany and the UK are now in separate trading blocs, there are no customs waivers for goods being sent to the country. Although Germany does have some large ports including Bremerhaven, Duisberg and Rostock, most palletised freight does not enter the country through any of these. Even the Port of Hamburg which lies upriver on the Elbe doesn’t see a great deal of cargo coming directly from the UK. Instead, the majority of shipments to Germany from UK suppliers will be sent from the South Coast of England crossing into northern France or Belgium. Either way, customs officials will need to confirm that all commercial goods being sent to Germany are correct as they cross the border. Typically, this will mean a physical check at Calais, Dunkirk or somewhere similar. However, a pallet delivery to Germany from the UK will not simply be checked to ensure it contains legally permitted goods because its accompanying paperwork will also be inspected.
Any British company that is exporting commercial goods to Germany – whether they are being sent to the country by pallet or otherwise – needs to be registered with an EORI number to do so. The same goes for importers of German-made goods and raw materials. EORI registration means being able to get past HMRC checks but you will still need to have documentation that is suitable for the purposes of EU customs officers. For many firms, especially those without much experience in sending goods to overseas markets, this work will be best completed by an EU-accredited customs clearance agency. Fortunately, Barrington Freight operates as both a customs clearance agency and a freight forwarding firm under one roof. In short, you can ask us to provide both services.
Germany is in Central Europe, bordering the Baltic Sea and the North Sea: it lies south of Denmark, to the west of Poland and the Czech Republic, north-west of Austria, north of Switzerland, north-east of France, and east of Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
