Do you know you can still use the British land-bridge without delay for shipments to the EU? And back again?
The good news is any shipments coming from anywhere on the island of Ireland are already from within the EU, so you can avoid any of the new custom checks imposed due to Brexit. Transit Procedures allow Irish loads to be fast-tracked through British and EU customs, so your goods are not delayed, just like as if they’d arrived on a direct ferry to the Continent. They are treated as if they have come direct from Ireland, even though they have travelled across Britain. So you can benefit from shorter delivery times via the land bridge, without any of the delays.
Please note: this applies to goods from both NORTHERN IRELAND or the REPUBLIC OF IRELAND.
Even though Northern Ireland remains part of the UK, due to the Northern Ireland Protocol it also benefits from still being part of the EU Customs Code. So goods from Northern Ireland are given the same fast-track benefits as goods from the Republic of Ireland. So why pay more to export direct when you can still save time and money using the British land-bridge?
