In order to maintain supply chains, we operate an ETSF Warehouse Facility (previously known as ERTS.) This is an inland clearance area that has been approved by Border Force. Customs controlled goods can be transferred from the port of arrival to this temporary storage facility pending customs clearance. In conjunction with our Customs Clearance team, our International vehicles and containers are fast-tracked through the UK borders directly to or from our ETSF facility for in house import or export customs clearance and delivery. As an Authorised Consignee and Authorised Consignor, Trafertir are approved to create and arrive Export NCTS transits as well as discharge import transits at our Basildon facility that is just 15 minutes from London Gateway and Tilbury ports and close to the M25 motorway
