Brexit coming up

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

Discharge of chips in Karlshamn

During 11 days the vessel "Santa Johanna" has called the Port of Karlshamn. Becoship has acted as the agent for the ship and taken care of the vessel during it's stay in port.

The vessel discharged 34.138 mtons eucalyptus chips from Urugay, equal to approximately 110.000 cubic metres. The pile with chips has grown every day even though 7-9 trucks has been driving back and forth to Nymölla, and when the vessel was discharged the pile occupied about 10.000 square metres on the quay before the final cargo was loaded four days later for the transport to Stora Enso in Nymölla.
