Carriage of goods abroad is subject to customs rules and regulations. Depending on the type of goods, country of origin and country of destination, goods may or may not, be subject to prohibitions, restrictions, inspection, detention and the application of duties and taxes. these rules are set by governments and are separate from rules of the carriage. Freight Premium fully complies with customs rules and regulations in the UK as well as all countries in which we arrange transport to/from.
Complying with customs regulations, UK and overseas is of course a necessity and one which requires care and attention. Providing inaccurate information, incorrect customs tariff codes or Customs Procedure Codes (CPC) on export or import entries can result in delays to goods, as well as customs queries or inspections, which can have adverse consequences.
The key to deriving positive benefits from customs procedures is knowledge; in Freight Premium our staff have a solid all-around understanding of the Customs environment and procedures that can transform a “cause for concern” into a “cause for celebration”.
Freight Premium is registered with HMRC, our electronic access to customs CHIEF system allows us to make customs declarations faster and simpler for our clients.
