FROM 1ST JANUARY 2021 THINGS WILL CHANGE FOR GOODS THAT YOU MOVE BETWEEN UK AND THE EUROPEAN UNION.

What does this mean?

  1. You will need to declare additional information for all goods shipped between UK and European Union.
  2. Every item will need to be declared accurately.
  3. Compliance is key and you are responsible for the information you provide to customs.
  4. You will be required to retain records for all goods moved for 6 years.

What happens if no information is provided –or not provided at all?

To minimise any delays Palletways will perform a number of checks to ensure you have provided all relevant information prior to the pallets leaving your facility.


In order to import or export goods after 1st Jan 2021, you will need:

A registered EORI number

Commodity codes

Export licenses for any goods that require one

Direct Representation

You will need to have completed a Direct Representation form to allow our customs agent Transland to act on your behalf. Any business importing or exporting freight across the UK/EU border requires you to appoint a customs clearance agent. You MUST use our export customs partner, Transland International. For them to act on your behalf, you must complete a Customs Clearance Agent form (pictured above). This is available here. Your consignments cannot be shipped unless you approve someone to act on your behalf as your Direct Representative using this form.
