Customs Clearance

GCL have 'badges' at all major UK ports and airports, so are ideally placed to help you navigate customs and HMRC.

To save you time, money and ensure a streamlined delivery, we can complete customs forms and submit them to HMRC on your behalf, using our web-based customs software.


Once submitted, entry and release can take anywhere from 1 to 48hrs, depending on the route selected and examination requirements. 

At GCL, we take a proactive approach, collecting and processing documentation before arrival to minimise both admin and storage costs for our customers.
