Liquid transport to the United Kingdom? Let us guide you the way!

Since January 1st, 2021, doing business with the United Kingdom has changed. Brexit has posed a new challenge, one that we have been preparing for since 2020.

Customs declarations

Since last year before Brexit, our office created a special team dedicated to addressing all concerns and business surrounding Brexit, including a colleague who is now a fully qualified customs consultant. Our inhouse customs department can take care of clearances, producing GDB, the application and supervision of the inspection and the BIP (inspection point). 

While waiting for our permit to create customs documents, our sister company TGN|Fritom has been aiding us in the process of creating the necessary documents, once again showing the strong bonds and cooperation between the two Fritom companies.

In the meantime we received the approval for a permit that allows us to create import and export documents ourselves. Therefore we can now offer our customers full support on the customs operations.

Importing Goods Into The Uk After Brexit

Handling products of animal origin

Over the course of the past few months we have aimed to automate as much as possible, and, as a result, the process of working with the new Brexit rulings is running smoother by the day. In addition, we have specialized in the procedures that are currently necessary for transporting animal byproducts like dairy products and animal fat from the United Kingdom to the European Union. Since the start of this year we have done successfully the clearance and handling via BIP of animal by-products for over more than 400 tankers.
