The need for genuine expertise in non-EU freight transport
Since the Brexit, the UK is no longer part of the European Union – which means a few changes in administrative processing in MRT. In the case of an import, the carrier is in possession of customs documents bearing a barcode. This is scanned on arrival in the UK.
Some shipments are made under the TIR/ATA regime (for Carnet Transit International Routier / Admission Temporaire). In this case, the driver of the vehicle presents himself to a customs officer when he arrives in the UK. There are also specific requirements for sanitary, veterinary and phytosanitary goods – as well as fishery products. Indeed, these goods in particular are supervised by SIVEP, the veterinary and phytosanitary control department.
When exporting goods from the UK to France, and therefore to the European Union, the carrier must be able to present a customs document with a barcode in the event of an inspection. When arriving in France, drivers can use the green lane if they have already completed customs formalities. On the other hand, if he is under the TIR/ATA regime, or if he has not finalized customs formalities (or if the shipment has been selected for inspection), he goes to the orange lane.
