Since 2003, International Forwarding has been the go-to forwarder for road freight to and from Switzerland. We were one of the very few UK freight forwarders in the market to offer a daily service. Now our customers rely on our fast, flexible, frequent service when shipping freight to or from Switzerland. Full and part loads are available, as well as cost-efficient groupage. For added value, our Switzerland service is driver-accompanied to ensure the fastest possible transit time and secure, reliable delivery of all your consignments.
Switzerland is not a member of the EU so for a faster, smoother freight forwarding we also offer customs clearance services through our Birmingham customs team or Dover agent.

Please note: We predominantly serve large-scale and business freight needs in the UK and Europe. We do not handle personal effects as this involves different shipping terms, insurances and exclusions from commercial shipping.

Do I need customs forms for Switzerland?
Yes. As Switzerland is a non-EU country, a customs declaration form is required – and this is something we can arrange for you through our customs clearance services. You’ll also need an EORI number to complete the customs paperwork. The 2019 UK-Switzerland trade agreement covers both exports and imports but essentially customs control when trading with Switzerland remains the same.
Exporting to Switzerland from UK – customs requirements
For goods below a value of 6000 euros, you should include a declaration of the origin of the goods on your commercial invoice. For higher value consignments, you will need an EUR1 certificate of origin which we can arrange for you. An export entry must be lodged with UK customs, and International Forwarding has its own customs clearance services to facilitate this. IFL also has Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) accreditation from UK customs which is a kitemark for competency in customs matters. In Switzerland import clearance takes place either at the border or at the premises of our Swiss transport partner.
Importing from Switzerland to UK – customs requirements
An import entry must be lodged with UK customs and, again, our clearance service is ideally placed to handle this and to deal with any customs queries raised while they are in transit via Dover port.
How much does it cost to send a pallet to Switzerland?
When shipping pallets to Switzerland, transport costs will depend upon the number of pallets, weight and the sizes (standard pallet size uk can be found here). Our sales team offers highly competitive quotations; attractive rates can also be given for non-palletised goods.
How long does it take to send freight to Switzerland?
IFL operates driver-accompanied road trailers. We offer door-to-door delivery within 48/72 hours, subject to UK and Swiss customs checks.
