Custom Clearance Service

Improve your delivery times with our dedicated custom clearance service

Custom clearance is an essential procedure before goods can be imported or exported to a different country, but the landscape around global trade is constantly changing and having the right customs clearance paperwork is crucial to ensuring your cargo can be transported seamlessly.

Missing or inaccurate documents can increase risks, lead to delays and extra costs, or result in cargo being unable to leave the port of entry.

We offer a highly personal customs service that ensures your cargo is safe, transported quickly and cleared in customs easily. Blacksmith Freight is an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) with electronic links to HM Customs & Excise, allowing us to get faster clearance on imports, to keep your business running like clockwork.
