We now offer a Transit Declaration service in partnership with ChamberCustoms® available to all traders in the local area.

A T1 Transit Document allows goods to travel from the UK to an EU destination country, without the need to make an import declaration at the first EU port of entry.

For example, for goods traveling to Germany by road, you can enter the EU through any coastal port without the need to declare customs. The import declaration can be made in Germany once the transit movement has been completed.

Through this service, we will:

Submit and monitor transit declarations on your behalf via the global transit service TransitNet

Arrange comprehensive bank guarantees through TransitNet* to cover duty and tax due on your goods whilst they are in transit.

*TransitNet operates under EU Common Transit regulations and principles.

The main benefit is that no customs duties or taxes are payable as the shipment moves from one country to the next within the EU.
