Logistics provider P&O Ferrymasters is offering a customs declaration service to customers to facilitate the movement of goods in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The service will help customers make customs declarations at ports in the Netherlands and Belgium.

It will also offer fiscal representation services for companies transporting goods throughout the European Union.

The customs declaration service will be organised in the UK under a strategic partnership with customs service specialist SGS Maco and through a separate partner in Ireland.
