Freightlink Reload Now Offer Customs Documentation Service

Freightlink Reload are pleased to announce that we now offer a full customs documentation service which includes EUR1, ATR and certificates of origin.

EUR1 Certificate

An EUR1, also known as a ‘movement certificate’, enables importers in certain countries to import goods at a reduced or nil rate of import duty under trade agreements between the EU and beneficiary countries.

Freightlink Reload is authorised to issue EUR1 certificates on behalf of H.M Revenue & Customs and we are here to help you. No matter where you are we have a dedicated service that can walk you through the EUR1 process, to take away the confusion so you can get on with what matters to you.
