WITH the uncertainty of Brexit and the issue of whether there will be free trade movement between Europe and the UK, one North East Lincolnshire company has taken steps to ensure it is fully prepared.
Worldwide freight forwarder OceanBlue Logistics Ltd has added customs clearances to the range of services.
The Laceby team is now capable of clearing any shipments that arrive from outside of Europe into the UK via the Humber or Felixstowe, Southampton, London Gateway and Tilbury.
Rob Salt, director, said: “The company already has several customers who use our import services, particularly from the Far East. In the past the customs clear would have been subcontracted out, now they are all cleared in house and this also means we can offer this service to other freight forwarders who are not Customs approved, and possibly to new UK importers.”
