CustomsLink has links to multiple sea ports around the UK, as well as Dover and Folkestone (Eurotunnel terminal). These links are used for both inventory and non-inventory linked UK customs clearances.
The customs declaration is linked to the port inventory system and a specific consignment, allowing for the customs release status on the port system to be automatically updated on clearance of the customs declaration and sent from customs directly to the port in a secure and trusted manner.
A customs agent requires a ‘badge’ (electronic login) for each inventory linked port that they intend to clear at. Otherwise, they cannot access the inventory and cannot present entries.
We have the relevant customs 'badges' for UK ports. Find out more about our port badges.
