Keeping your goods moving

What we do

Compliant and efficient goods movement

KNP Logistics Grouy have a combined +150 years of customs experience to add value to your supply chain. We process volumes of clearances and are a hands-on operation, able to deliver tailored solutions to keep your goods moving.

When choosing a customs broker you need to check:
Does the broker move the type of goods you trade?
Does the broker cover the countries you trade with?
Can the broker handle the number of declarations you expect to make?
Does the broker operate similar hours to the hours you operate?

What we’re good at

HMRC Authorised ETSF facilities

2022 we established two approved External Storage Facilities (ETSF), one at the Port of Dover, the other inland at our HQ in Northamptonshire. Effectively our approved ETSF facilities move the border inland away from port issues.

Declarations can be filled at our ETSF facilities in advance avoiding at port queues, inspections and processing that restrict the movement of goods.

KNP’s inland ETSF facilities can significantly speed up your customs process, allowing our teams to electronically manage your customs formalities away from the busy port environment, ideal for FMCG.

ETSF Port of Dover: HMRC authorised
Customs declarations conducted whilst shipments are in Dover ETSF facilities avoiding delays and storage charges at Port

ETSF Inland: HMRC authorised
Effectively moving the customs border inland – conducting declarations away from port/airport to accelerate the process

ETSF facilities: Visibility and audit records to HMRC and Border Force
