What is the average transit time of a transport to Scotland?

From Killingholme to the Scottish border is approximately 200 miles (300 km). To Aberdeen is 400 miles (650 km). Therefore, the costs for transport to Scotland are usually a bit higher than the rates for England. Normally, we use 3 days transit between loading and unloading (Monday loading = Thursday unloading). For groupage part loads, an extra day is sometimes needed. Because we go back and forth at a daily basis, we can load and unload every day of the week.

Customs

Since Brexit, there is a tough border between England, Wales, Scotland, Northern-Ireland, and Europe. All goods coming from or going to the United Kingdom have to go through customs. In addition to transport, we also provide our customers with all the necessary documents for both export and import. To ensure this, we make use of two rock-solid partners in England and the Netherlands. We can transport under various Incoterms (Ex Works, DDP, DAP, etc.), as long as this is clearly agreed in advance.
