Road Freight Clearance

We are providing import and export clearance services in all major UK points of arrival and border crossings.

Upon the UK's exit from the European Union and its customs territory, a consequential shift was observed in customs clearance, primarily gravitating towards the road freight clearance, colloquially known as RoRo (Roll On Roll Off) clearance service. This significant paradigm shift has given birth to an entirely new and thriving market for customs clearance services, with an array of beneficial implications that have largely contributed to its accelerated success.

Historically, when the UK enjoyed the benefits of being part of the EU customs territory, the free movement of goods was a given. The most prevalent system of customs clearance for goods imported from third countries revolved around the concept of temporary storage. This meant that goods were required to be included in the inventory of a designated customs location prior to being permitted for release. However, the formidable task of managing cross-border trade in the aftermath of Brexit necessitated the formulation of a new, more efficient system. Consequently, the Border Operating Model was introduced, where a significant volume of trade was configured to flow through a pre-lodgement model.

Within this new framework, the Goods Vehicle Movement System (GVMS), managed and administered by HMRC, has evolved to become the largest operator of non-inventory linked customs clearance facilities. This system ensures that import and export clearance declarations will be linked to GVMS, effectively initiating or completing journeys to and from the UK, thereby overseeing and ensuring the smooth progression of such movements.

Under the new Border Operating Model, customs declarations for goods travelling through RoRo locations must be pre-lodged in advance of their arrival. From January 2022, all goods must be either pre-lodged for RoRo traffic or travel via inventory linked locations where they fall under customs control and are kept in temporary storage until they have been cleared. GVMS – government system of inventory control for movement of goods allowing businesses to reduce the cost they will otherwise incur by travelling through containerised maritime locations.


We can manage your declarations and provide speedy clearance services to meet the highest demand for speed and accuracy. A timing slot for your clearance is established at the outset and even when the border is close to the shipping location, we meet the most stringent requirements for speed and quality.

One of the chief selling points of road clearance services is their considerable financial appeal, primarily due to their cost-effectiveness compared to other modes of transport. The pre-lodgement model for road clearance allows for the pre-validation of documentary compliance requirements, ensuring a seamless flow of cross-border movements. The implication of sending goods without a pre-lodged declaration could result in unexpected hiccups, especially in instances where there may be special requirements for entering goods into the UK, unanticipated by traders.
