Customs clearance through Brexit

These are uncertain times for UK importers and exporters with the end of the Brexit transition so close and many details yet to be finalised. Using an experienced customs clearance agent will help you through the shipping process and help you to decide how best to export your goods overseas post-Brexit.

We also advise looking for AEO status when sending freight internationally, and especially so now. We’re proud to say that IFL has been approved by HM Revenue & Customs as an Approved Economic Operator (AEO) since 2010, and will be pleased to give advice and assistance on relevant customs procedures to our customers.

As a customs broker, our clearance services are centralised and carried out through our Birmingham office or Dover agent. But we also cover the majority of UK seaports including Southampton, Tilbury, Purfleet and the Stop24 freight facility at Folkestone for Channel Tunnel traffic.
