Importing goods between the UK & EU?
From 1 Jan 2022, customs clearance will require a little more time and attention – but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer mountains of paperwork and long hours waiting at check-in.
You see, at P&O Freight, we’ve developed a digital Travel Wallet to help prevent disruption & paperwork overload when you check in. It’ll allow you to store all reference codes, so you can send secure barcodes to your drivers when they need them. When they reach the border, they can simply scan & go.
Not only that, but Travel Wallet will guide you through which documents to submit, based on the exact route and cargo you’re carrying.
Great, so a logistics envelope… but more useful?
That’s right, we will show you the exact documentation you’ll need according to the new Brexit customs requirements – from your Transit Accompanying Documents (TAD) to your GMR IDs (UK Goods Movement Reference).
Another benefit of the Travel Wallet is how easy it is to send post-embarkation customs messages. All of these messages can be sent to an email or phone number of your choice. The same person who receives the barcode can also get the customs messages. This can be up to a maximum of 5 contacts.
Oh, and the best bit?
The P&O Freight Travel Wallet is free to use, so you can meet the new Brexit requirements & transport your goods at no extra cost to you. Keep the admin to a minimum when you use your Travel Wallet and we’ll get you across the border smoothly, ‘no matter the changing tides’.
Which routes is Travel Wallet available for?
Travel Wallet will be shortly available for both directions on the Dover / Calais route and will be launched on Liverpool / Dublin and Larne / Cairnryan routes in the coming months
Can Travel Wallet generate reference codes?
As an upgrade, you can also use Travel Wallet to get your UK Goods Movement Reference IDs, PBN ID, and Safety & Security declarations for GB/FR/IE. Your customs declarations can be created from within the Travel Wallet through BEEMS (Border Entry and Exit Movement Service), our integrated customs document service.
These services will be chargeable and you’ll need to create an account with, CARGOES, which is the Digital Services area of our parent company, DP World.
How does Travel Wallet work?
- To use Travel Wallet, simply activate from your booking and select your chosen route and cargo information.
- We’ll show you all the import/export declarations you’ll need to smoothly import your goods across the border. Input your declaration reference numbers to generate one Master Barcode, which will link to all your documentation.
- You can then share this barcode from your Travel Wallet to your drivers via email or SMS.
- Upgrade with BEEMS to obtain your GMRs and Safety & Security declarations.
