Customs Clearance

A NEW service launched from UKP Worldwide in collaboration with Whistl

Customs Clearance

A new customs clearance service from UKPW from our new Heathrow warehouse – bringing you efficient customs clearance and faster delivery of parcels, freight or mail.

If you are delivering mail, parcels and packets into – or out of – the UK, you can’t wait around, you need fast and efficient customs clearance that enables you to deliver your goods to your customers on time.

Goods imported into the UK must be presented to customs and a request made to clear them through customs is made and any duties or taxes are paid to HMRC. 

Our collaboration with Whistl UK means the time to get into the network is minimised and that first parcel scan from the final mile carrier can sometimes be the same day goods arrive at the UK border. 

As an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) we have a long-held and proven understanding and experience of customs processes and procedures. 

Other advantages include:

  • accelerated release of goods from Customs (subject to anti-smuggling checks), enabling quicker delivery of your goods
  • compliant administrative processes
  • electronic frontier declaration submissions

By working in collaboration with Whistl, we will be able to deliver cleared goods/printed matter coming in from abroad for delivery to UK customers, quicker than ever before. Goods can also be transited through the UK for onward distribution and clearance to third countries (e.g. from/to the EU, the US, etc.). We also offer a unique agreement with the United States Postal Service (USPS) allowing customers direct access to USPS services through our facility in New Jersey, USA.

Our new External Temporary Storage Facility (ETSF) is located at London Heathrow, one of the world’s largest and busiest airports. 

So why not take away the unnecessary hurdles that can hold back efficient and reliable delivery both in the UK and internationally by simplifying delivery through UKPW and Whistl.

For further information on how you can take advantage of the International Gateway service, please contact Guy Cliffe, Director, UKPW: guy.cliffe@ukpworldwide.com or call 01844 398 880.
