The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on December 31, 2020. As of January 1, 2021, it is mandatory to present customs declaration forms to customs officials when your goods travel between the UK and the EU.
WITH OVER 100 TRAILER DELIVERIES AND
RELOADS PER DAY IN THE UNITED KINGDOM,
NDQ IS YOUR ONE-STOP-SHOP SPECIALIST
FOR ALL YOUR UK CONSIGNMENT NEEDS.
Customs declarations are required when goods are exported and imported, but your goods should not be delayed at the UK border.
When leaving the EU, it is important that an export declaration is lodged at the point in time when your goods are collected. You will need to share the details of the export declaration along with accurate information of the goods that are loaded with us so that the vehicle will not be delayed at any EU port.
Upon arrival in the EU, your goods will not be able to continue onward unless they are first cleared by customs or a guaranteed transit form is lodged. In some cases, the declaration form for customs must be ready before the goods sail from the UK, while for other EU countries the goods may be declared upon arrival in the EU. This rule applies on the basis of the first country of arrival in the EU and is not based on the destination country.
Please do not leave it too late to arrange your customs declarations on time. NDQ ships your cargo without delays and hassle thanks to its experienced and extensive Brexit team and large investments in handy IT solutions.
