With increasing volumes over the port of Karlshamn, we have decided to strengthen our team. Our new colleague Niklas Nilsson, who has experience from forwarding, customs declarations and stevedoring, will mainly work on the timber forwarding side.

Next week it will be decided if UK will manage to close a deal with the European Union, failing this we are facing a no deal “hard Brexit”. We do know that on the 1st of January 2021 the transition period which has been during 2020 is over and regular customs formalities for third countries will be in practice, unless a deal will be done where other is agreed.

We already know that exporting companies will need an EORI-number, which can be applied for at the Swedish Customs and that the UK importer have to do the same with the British Customs.

Becoship can act as your customs agent and we are ready to help with your customs declarations from January onwards. Contact us already today at info@becoship.se.

The timber shipments into the US are growing. Beginning July 53.000 cubic metres of sawn timber were loaded in Karlshamn before the almost 200 metres long ship continued its voyage over the Atlantic.
