Customs clearance – new notices

Customs Clearance Dover

As an international freight forwarder, we have our own customs clearance services and can advise our customers on all important customs-related matters.

In August new notices have been issued relating to the following:

  • New procedures for motor vehicle import entries
  • Anti-dumping duties on imported Chinese ceramics
  • Systems for valuation of imported fruit and vegetables

Dual use goods

These are goods which can have both commercial and military use and may require export licenses. International Forwarding will be pleased to give guidance on the relevant customs procedures. We are approved by HM Revenue & Customs as an Approved Economic Operator (AEO) and can give you advice and assistance relating to any of the above notices and any other customs matters.

Customs clearance services

We offer expert high-quality clearance services from a dedicated office at Dover Sea Port.

We recently extended our services to include other ports which means that we can offer our customers a variety of options for exporting your goods overseas.
