GWT’s expertise and experience in all aspects of Customs clearance procedures mean that we can give our customers an unrivalled level of service in this specialised area.

We can coordinate UK customs clearance at Dover and ensure that your goods are entered and classified correctly. Customs entries are processed prior to the trailer departing and cleared immediately on arrival ensuring that the goods reach destination without delay.

The port Of Dover operates using the Goods Vehicle Movement service for cargo departing and arriving at the border. This means that customs entries need to be completed in advance and shipping documents need to be processed accurately and promptly so trailers can depart without being held at any border facilities. 


 Here at GWT we are fully authorised under CFSP to allow our registered importers to have their cargo depart straight through without the need for the CDS entry/MRN to board. This means quicker and smoother departures, as the haulier can just tick the box for express EIDR departure. This means no last minute chasing for documents, or resolution of queries while cargo is stuck and unable to proceed. You can make sure your cargo can proceed and gain a competitive advantage over your competitors knowing your entries are cleared quicker for departure!
