We have changed some procedures to prepare for Brexit which is no longer needed as it has been postponed. Here is an overview and status of the various initiatives:
Border Control surcharge
Applies solely for exports shipments to the UK and Ireland because of long queues and extra waiting time due to additional checks to cross the border.
The rates apply from April 15, 2019 on both piece goods, partload and full load shipments and constitutes:
3 EUR pr. 100 kg tax weight (min. 3 EUR pr. sending, max 200 EUR).
The operation is normalized, and we have the same departure times and schedules as before.
Booking process without extra documents
Since we do not have to ensure that we can make a customs clearance or t-document, there is no longer any need for extra documents or invoice when booking a shipment.
We still recommend that the recipient get a TSP number. Apply for it here.
We still recommend that you get an EORI number. If you do not have one, you can apply for one here.
We thank you for your understanding, and point out that the situation can change day by day depending on government and EU decisions.
You are always welcome to contact your local DB Schenker contact or our customs department.
