UK importer: requirements as of 1 January 2022

We want to make sure that your goods keep moving and you play an important role in this.

As a UK importer, you should provide the following information necessary for the UK import customs declarations to Kuehne+Nagel UK:

  1. A complete Power of Attorney (Letter of Empowerment) filed with Kuehne+Nagel UK to act on your behalf.

  2. Your authorisation to submit shipment data to the UK HMRC customs system (CHIEF/CDS) for a 12-month period.​​​​​​
  • Click here to download the statement of authorisation and email us the signed file.​​
  • Without this 12-month authorisation, we must obtain authorisation for each individual shipment, which might lead to possible delays.

Please ensure to provide the following information to your European shipper prior to booking:

  • Complete import customs data set (e.g. HS code, country of origin, Incoterms, etc.) and all documentation (e.g. invoice, packing list, certificate of origin, etc.) associated with the shipment.

  • Your GB EORI number.

  • Your email address to validate the import customs data set (if required).

You can mitigate the risk of border disruption. Get ready and make sure to provide all the necessary information/paperwork correctly and on time.
