Reliable transports to/from Great Britain despite Brexit with Koch International
Brexit solutions for customs clearance
Plan more securely with Koch International
Since the end of the Brexit transition period, you as a shipper have a lot to consider, and we are happy to support you with comprehensive advice on transport handling.
We have prepared ourselves well for the post-Brexit period and are keeping track of the constant changes in shipment handling. We offer you a comprehensive, high-performance service for your shipments to/from the UK.
We look forward to your import and export shipments - both general cargo and part and full loads.
The EORI number (Economic Operators' Registration and Identification number) replaces the German customs number as a valid participant identification throughout the European Union. It is issued free of charge on application by the Generalzolldirektion - Dienstort Dresden - Stammdatenmanagement.
The MRN (Master Reference Number) is the customs registration number that enables customs to identify and process your export packages in the Atlas customs system. It is the main reference for the customs declaration and the most important link to your export goods.
After collection/loading of the goods, the truck drives to the corresponding UK export customs office and receives the T1 with the MRN number. A copy of the T1 is sent by the export customs office to the Koch partner in UK. The driver can now leave the UK and transport the goods to Osnabrück.
For import customs clearance in Germany, the customs documents are handed over to the service provider specified by the client. If Koch International is commissioned, the driver receives the corresponding ATA number from our customs department. With this ATA number, the driver reports to the corresponding German customs office for customs clearance.
Following customs clearance, the goods can be delivered to your customer.
All packaging wood (including wooden pallets, boxes and dunnage) must comply with the international ISPM15 standard. This is equivalent to the better known IPPC standard. We recommend EPAL pallets, for example.
The wood must have been treated in such a way that existing pests have been killed. This is only done by a so-called "HAT treatment" (heat treatment). The use of pallets and packaging can be checked by the health authorities.
