Customs Clearance

Harbour Shipping has been providing a neutral and independent customs clearance service since 1983. Today we offer an unrivalled service facilitating all aspects of road freight Customs clearance. We are the only agent with 24/7 offices at both Dover Western Docks and Stop24 Services which offers our clients greater flexibility in choosing either The Port of Dover or Eurotunnel for their channel crossings.

We have direct computer links to Customs (CHIEF) and can arrange completion of Import Entries and Export E.A.D. and N.C.T.S. (T-form’s) for shipments arriving or departing by road at any port throughout the UK.

Our extensive knowledge of customs clearance procedures coupled with our 24/7 presence allows us to provide a comprehensive range of services to the benefit of importers, exporters and freight forwarders alike.
