Our team are well versed in navigating the ever changing intricacies of customs procedures.

Post-Brexit Customs

Upon confirmation that the UK would be leaving the European Union in 2020 after 47 years of membership, the 2025 UK Border Strategy was played out with the vision to make the UK's border the most effective in the world embracing the latest innovation, simplified processes and improvements in both security and biosecurity. This has seen a complete overhaul in customs procedures, many of which didn't exist a few years ago.

The introduction of a new regulatory and customs border has made it more difficult and more expensive for UK companies to trade with the EU and vice versa. Confusion about the new rules resulted in a widespread lack of compliance across the industry, many of whom chose to “put a line under it” upon realising they had not been compliant rather than disclose it and amend the records, citing the lack of sufficient guidance as justification.

Like so many others, JJX have had to navigate through the minefield that become customs but never chasing to cut corners or perform below our high standards, we have recruited wisely and encouraged in-depth training across our European Operations department to ensure perfect compliance on every consignment that we handle and that is still present today.

Customs Expertise

Transporting goods of any kind across the UK border demands strict adherence to various documentation and protocols and at JJX Logistics, we take this responsibility seriously. We have a team of professionals who are highly trained in the complexities of customs regulations, ensuring that all required paperwork is meticulously prepared and processed. We understand that even minor errors in documentation can lead to delays and penalties, so we leave no room for error. Our dedication to compliance and precision ensures that your goods are stored securely and released for distribution without unnecessary delays.

Our fantastic team of staff are the backbone of this company. Highly experienced in their fields, each member is fully qualified in customs compliances and practices having received top-notch training from the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and the Institute of Export and International Trade. Their expertise enables us to navigate the intricacies of customs regulations with confidence, giving you peace of mind that your goods are in safe hands.

Duty Deferment Options

Duty deferment is a method of allowing businesses to control their cash flow by paying for customs duties and import VAT by monthly direct debit instead of all in one go when the goods enter the UK. If you require regular importing and exporting services between the UK and Europe and do not have your own duty deferment account then you can benefit from using ours collating the import VAT, customs duties and excise duties payments for all of your consignments over the month and pay in one go at the end of the month.

Bonded Storage

Located the heart of the West Midlands in the UK with direct transport links to Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and London, our 175,000 sq ft warehouse facility has Customs Bonded approval. This will not only offer you complete supply chain fulfilment options but also store your goods from overseas and delay all of the duty payments required until they enter into general circulation. We are also in the process of gaining Excise approval as well with HMRC with the aim of achieving this at the end of 2023.

Prioritising Compliance

Alongside industry leading accreditation with organisations such as TAPA, CILT, BADGP and the RHA, we are perhaps proudest our holding an Authorised Economic Operator status issued by HMRC in line with the World Customs Organisation's SAFE Framework. This is a voluntary met accreditation for those companies who show the highest levels of supply chain security, proven financial solvency and compliant customs documentation and due diligence. Through our AEO status, you will be able to enjoy several benefits during the border crossing process between the EU and UK ensuring smoother and more reliable international trade operations.
