About CustomsLink | CustomsLink®


Yes, there is no difference in what is required and you or your customer will still need to complete export and import declarations. 



Unfortunately, in many cases this can be difficult. In order to sell your goods Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) you need to have a base both in the UK and the EU, then first export to your entity in the other customs territory before arranging final delivery.
 

Speak to the CustomsLink team to make sure your paperwork is all in order to do this.



CustomsLink is the best solution for groupage operators. Our Portpass builder automatically groups all the consignments which you are shipping in the same vehicle, so that you can easily request your Portpass and the haulier can make his journey with no disruption. 
 



No, you will also need to make sure that the EU customs clearance is arranged, as you require an export and an import for each movement. 

If your buyer/supplier in the EU is arranging this, all you need to do is input the EU MRN (Movement Reference Number) into CustomsLink alongside your UK customs entry and the Haulier will be able to complete the movement.



Your Haulier will be able to discuss what fees they charge you for this service. 

Using this service helps them keep their cost down to you – if you arrange your customs clearance yourself, your Haulier will still need to re-enter all your details to obtain Safety and Security Declarations and then arrange to clear port community systems.
