As of January 1, 2021, the United Kingdom will no longer be part of the European Community. This process is better known as the "Brexit".
This has had major consequences for the transport of goods to and from the UK. For import and export operations, customs papers have to be drawn up to properly regulate the declaration of goods. Many transport companies have outsourced this work for their clients to third parties. (Forwarding agents).
Fritom Liquid Logistics has ensured that this service is organized "in-house" and not outsourced. In the past months, clients have experienced many benefits and, above all, much peace and convenience. The employees of the customs department at the office in Bolsward assist clients in providing the correct information and taking care of the final declarations. Looking back, a 100% score was achieved in 2021 and there have been no complaints/comments.
Unfortunately, the current procedures drawn up in consultation with the UK government are not adequate. And so it has been decided to amend the rules again as of 1 January 2022.
Especially for transports that are accompanied (so with driver) a new procedure applies.
