Are you BREXIT ready?


Speculation on the consequences and outcome of Brexit negotiations has reached a critical point, but remains unclear.

In the event of a ‘No Deal’ scenario on 29th March all goods between the UK and Europe will require customs clearance. Congestion at ports has been widely predicted with the impact widespread for a period of time.

Davies Turner is well prepared. Plans are well underway to upgrade our in built capabilities, and also to offer guidance to our customers and partners on steps they can take now to be ready for the significant challenges that may lie ahead.

We now urge our Customers to prepare:

  1. Act now: If you do not have an active EORI this will be needed for Customs Clearance, it’s free to apply and currently takes just a few days.

  2. All customers without an EORI number must apply now at  https://www.gov.uk/eori

  3. Act now: Establish the Customs commodity codes and incoterms for your goods. This will allow you to apply the correct rate and amount of Duty and keep you compliant with HMRC https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff

  4. Check: Is your business ready to provide commercial documentation for each Export or Import movement? This should include; goods description / tariff number / value & currency / packaging details / weight / origin / EORI number / Commodity code.

For your added information:-

  • Davies Turner is uniquely placed to use the existing customs clearance skills and systems that support over 100 trucks per week to and from Turkey & North Africa among our non EU specialist services.
  • Alongside our trailer services Davies Turner is one of the largest Ocean LCL groupage operators in the UK, handling clearances at every site.
  • We already use a variety of routes and ports by road.
  • Our hubs are approved for customs clearance allowing us to by-pass the worst of any congestion within the ports and proceed for clearance by the Davies Turner Clearance team inland.
  • In 2010 Davies Turner was among the first companies in Europe to be awarded AEO status, we are therefore experienced in operating in a “trusted trader” environment.
  • Existing Clearance and Operations Teams are being strengthened with a nationwide recruitment plan, and in preparation with our award winning IT teams, including software and infrastructure improvements.

As we approach our 150th Anniversary the experience and knowledge of our excellent staff is backed by determined Management committed to ensure that we handle this event like others in our long history, leading from the front.
