Customs Clearance

The need for an office at every port has gone. With the modernisation of HM Revenue & Customs, all customs entries and payments are dealt with electronically via a centralised HMRC location.

With our continuous investment in computer systems and communications, MIES specialist customs clearance staff are able to clear your import or export shipment from any of our terminals no matter what port or airport your goods arrive at or depart from.

MIES have always put customs matters high on our agenda list. We have experts on hand to offer advice and assistance with all customs freight related services. We can offer assistance with Binding Tariff Information, Tariff Classification, Bonded Warehousing, Duty Rates, Special Customs Procedures such as IPR, OPR and End Use Relief, Import & Export Clearance and a whole range of other Customs Consultancy.

As an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), you can be assured of a first class service on ALL customs related matters. We take pride in being an AEO and MIES was amongst the first Midlands based forwarders to be approved. The assessment programme is rigorous and certification confirms a company’s ability to work to extremely high standards of customs compliance.
