Priority offers Brexit airbridge lifeline

[ December 21, 2020   //   ]

Time-critical logistics specialist Priority Freight and charter airline company Jota Aviation are to set up an ‘air bridge’ between mainland Europe and the UK from January. It says it will offer clients some peace-of-mind, by guaranteeing on-time delivery of critical goods.
The air bridge will offer return flights twice daily, using a BAe146 between Ostend and Birmingham. The service is available for Priority Freight clients to book immediately, with any remaining pallet spaces in January available on a daily spot booking basis.
Priority Freight has Authorised Economic Operator Full (AEOF) status at all of its UK locations, including the Midlands. The company’s Coventry office also manages custom storage facilities including its own External Temporary Storage Facilities (ETSF) and Customs Warehouse. ETSF allows Priority Freight to place non-EU goods into storage prior to customs procedures or re-exportation. Only goods required for customs inspection need be retained while the remainder of the shipment can be delivered without delay.
