We have direct links to the UK's Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system, as well as to the Port of Felixstowe. Our experienced staff is thoroughly informed on all aspects of customs clearance including Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP) and the New Export System (NES).
