Customs Clearance Solutions
CBS (Customs Brokerage Service) was founded in 1997 and its main business was providing customers with Import clearance solutions.
In Oct 2015, the acquisition by Bridges Worldwide Plc provided an exciting opportunity to grow an existing business, generate new business and offer customers a full range of Customs clearance capabilities (both Imports and Exports) with compliance being at the forefront of this operation.
Customs clearance and brokerage is our core business in both Courier and Airfreight and we can work with you to meet your specific requirements (including lodgment and retrieval of freight).
Whether you are a direct customer eg in the manufacturing or retail sector, trading in e-commerce or an established Agent or Courier within the industry, no matter what size, BRIDGES CBS can provide the solution.
Our friendly team offers practical advice to help speed up the process and explain the “jargon” whether this be explaining about EORI registration or what information is required on a commercial invoice, we are happy to help.
As a member of AICES (Association of International Courier and Express Services), BRIDGES CBS is actively involved in all HMRC/Trade consultation and Customs committee work to ensure we comply with new legislation.
