Operating two newly established Inland Pre-Clearance sites
Wincanton selected by HMRC for logistics contract to support customs clearance. The 3PL will provide logistics services to support air and sea freight inspections. The five-year agreement will see Wincanton work together with HMRC to check inbound shipments into the UK, operating two newly established Inland Pre-Clearance sites with associated transport. HMRC and Border Force undertake targeted checks inland, which help prevent mis-declared goods from flowing into the country.
HMRC had a number of specific requirements for suppliers to this contract; from general haulage and container transport experience through to the ability to provide secure, flexible warehousing and an industry leading safety record.
The key to Wincanton’s approach is the ability to integrate and deliver all aspects through a single management team. This was a clear differentiator for the Company.
