Here at Pallet2Ship, we put our customers first and aim to give you the most up to date information. Please see the information below regarding required documentation for shipments post Brexit.
IMPORTANT! Information on EORI numbers.
Considering shipping goods to/from Europe? In the UK, businesses, self-employed and private individuals involved in a commercial transaction must register, the same for businesses and self-employed within the EU, so before exporting/importing it is essential to make sure that both you and your customers/suppliers in Europe have the EORI numbers (unless your EU customer is a private individual in which case they do not need it).

We are operating in a highly-volatile industry, and we are always trying to adapt the services we provide to all of our customers' needs and always looking to improve on the existing online system such as adding new services, so you can export and import your freight at a click of a button.
As Brexit has finally happened, after 3 years of negotiations and uncertainty, the UK can now look forward to new trade opportunities outside Europe, and to develop the ones already in place. The USA and Canada are 2 of the most important potential trade partners, and we want to offer our customers the easiest and most cost-effective solutions when importing/exporting goods from and to these 2 countries. Furthermore, we have added 3 new sea freight services on our website:
