New service to help manufacturers move goods smoothly in and out of EU
Make UK is launching today a partnership with leading certification company SGS to offer a simple customs brokerage service to help companies fill in complex customs declarations correctly to clear their goods for import and exports.
Since the start of the year, all shipments to and from the UK have required a customs declaration, with many companies struggling to ensure that their goods continue to arrive at their destination on time.
Many businesses have found the forms difficult to complete and have been struggling to find a customs agent to take on the job for them. 97% of UK manufacturers who export, do so to the EU and over the past decades, filling in customs declarations has been completely unnecessary because the UK was part of the EU Single Market and Customs Union.
