If have been let down by your current supplier and post Brexit procedures are causing you headaches, then contact us today as we can help.

Below is a summary of important things to remember for UK imports and exports.

Have the right paper work and details in place

A number of issues have been causing delays for goods moving from the UK into the EU throughout the industry, including an increase in documentation, customs clearance delays and vehicles being stopped and turned around due to incorrect and incomplete customs paperwork.

From our interaction with customers a main challenge is related to documentation – which is why it is extremely important that we receive the required documentation and information to move your goods at the time of booking.

We strongly recommend that you ensure you are fully prepared before wanting to import and/or export you good to help ensure you avoid unnecessary delays and extra costs.
Incomplete documentation will inevitably result in delays and possible extra charges – we are to help you through the process and avoid these unwanted situations.

Commercial Invoices

It is very important that you send your Delamode representative the correct commercial shipment documentation at the time of your booking. It is also vital to ensure all the correct information is contained on a commercial invoice to prevent any delays

Wooden pallets/packaging compliance

The use of wooden pallets/packaging material must be compliant to ISPM15 heat treatment the UK Government (DEFRA) have confirmed that from the 1st January 2021, it will be a legal requirement for all wood packaging material moving in both directions between UK and the EU to be compliant with a treatment and mark as specified in the International Standard for Phytosanitary measures No 15 (ISPM15).
