Managing your customs clearance for European and international freight.

The formalities and procedures of customs clearance for goods entering and leaving a specific national territory can be daunting and cumbersome. Our experience in UK, European and ongoing international freight management will help reduce any issues before they become a problem. We work with you to address having goods held up at a border, in advance where possible, and reactively if problems arise.

Customs clearance depends on the particularities of the shipment and whether shipping by road, rail or sea. We work with our customers to ensure they are compliant and submit the right paperwork to the correct authorities for inspection and approval. Our integrated tracking and monitoring allow our clients to log in and check the status of any consignment, which is especially important when goods are traversing customs borders.

At MTL, we believe in end-to-end transparency across every aspect of our business. We don’t try and tell you we manage every element of your consignment journey by ourselves without any support. Our expertise is in the logistics management and physical journey of your products, and we work with expert support partners to ensure that the journey is trouble-free. Founded in 1980 and based near the port of Rotterdam, Eurotransit customs and shipping agents are highly regarded within the industry as experienced and adaptable in import and export procedures and customs management. They have had Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification since 2012 and work with our consignment management in the EU and other countries across Europe. These factors demonstrate why your business should be confident in trusting MTL to deliver efficient and cost-effective services.

We have produced a Customs Management Guide to help explain our processes and how we manage European customs post-Brexit. This guide is available to view and download here.
