Priority Freight prepares for Brexit

[ December 14, 2020   //   ]

Time-critical logistics specialist Priority Freight has set up a dedicated customs management team to carry out clearances in-house for its customers.

It has also gained Authorised Economic Operator Full (AEOF) status with MMRC at its three UK locations (Dover, Coventry and Heathrow), giving it the power to operate quicker customs procedures, and move goods into temporary storage between different member states.

Facilities includes its own External Temporary Storage Facilities (ETSF) and Customs Warehouse at all of its UK premises.

The ETSF and Customs Warehouse in Dover is inside the company’s secure truck parking facility, three miles from the port. It allows Priority Freight to place goods into storage prior to customs procedures or re-export, while the remainder of the shipment can be delivered without delay.

Neal Williams, Group Managing Director at Priority Freight commented: “With no agreed deal at this late stage, there’s still a lot of uncertainty and confusion around what customs will look like post-Brexit. Deal or no deal, our mission is to remove all elements of stress for our clients and take care of the entire cross-border transportation and customs process. We have built an expert team to do just that, meaning clients can continue to ship goods with speed, flexibility and confidence.”
