T1 Transit Documents 

A T1 transit document allows goods to travel from the UK to an EU destination country without the need to make an import declaration at the first port of entry into the EU. 

ChamberCustoms will submit and monitor Transit declarations on your behalf. We will arrange comprehensive bank guarantees through SGS to cover your goods in transit. 

The main benefit is that no customs duties or taxes are payable as the shipment moves from one country to the next within the EU.
