Europa launches Brexit product

Dartford, UK: Europa Road, part of Europa Worldwide, has launched a new customs product to minimise transit time delays between the UK and mainland Europe after the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December.

The new product, Europa Flow, is based on the premise that delays are created by the need to contact importers prior to delivery, to agree terms, and collect VAT and duty prior to delivery.

Europa solves this by acting as an EU Global VAT representative for its customers, zero rating EU import VAT and billing duty and fees back to the UK party.

These steps, plus the use of Frontier Declarations, will mean that clearance occurs whilst the goods cross the channel. By the time they arrive on the other side, they are free to deliver.

To deliver the service Europa has created two customs brokerage businesses known as ‘Frictionless Trade Services’ in Lille, France as well as Oostende in Belgium, in addition to the UK team in Dartford. These operations will manage export and import declarations and all of the associated work.

Andrew Baxter, managing director of Europa Worldwide Group, said: “The Brexit transition period is quickly coming to an end. Soon all goods travelling between the UK and the EU will need to go through a customs process.

“By using this product our customers will be in the strongest position, we have devised a solution to keep goods moving without friction. Whilst we can’t prevent physical customs checks we can remove every other barrier that delays goods.”
