How can I benefit from EU Customs?

Customs clearance can be daunting for any business, especially when you have many other high priorities. With the constant changes due to Brexit, such as Import Controls and Commodity changes, it can be hard to know exactly what is required when importing and exporting goods.

Due to this, we recommend that you use a partner you can trust. Good Logistics have a very strong and experienced EU Customs team, who are trained to tackle customs, no matter the business size, in Europe. By using us, we will take the strain off your shoulders, by sorting out the customs documentation and processes required. That way, you can focus on your priorities without extra stress.

We provide customs services for any location in the world. For more information on this, please visit our main Customs Clearance page.

Updates to Import Controls and Commodity codes have changed since 01/01/22 and will continue to change over the course of the year.

Although Good Logistics are well prepped for these changes, it is important our customers are aware of what is happening and prepare / act accordingly. If our customers do not give us the correct information in advance, this could cause delays to your shipments.

You can also subscribe to our emails, so you are kept up to date with the latest changes.

How can I avoid delays from European countries?

To avoid possible delays, we ask our customers to make sure that they have all the relevant documentation ready:

  • Correct trailer number
  • Number of packages
  • Correct UK port of arrival
  • Name of ferry operator
  • Commodity code
