What is an EORI number?

An EORI number is a number, unique throughout the European Community, assigned by a customs authority in a Member State to economic operators (businesses) or persons. By registering for customs purposes in one Member State, an Economic Operator (EO) is able to obtain an EORI number which is valid throughout the Community. The EO will then use this number in all communications with any EC customs authorities where a customs identifier is required for example customs declarations.

What is volumetric weight and how do I calculate the dimension weight of my shipment?

Volumetric weight, also known as dimensional weight. You simply need to multiply the height x width x length in centimetres. If the shipment is going via air courier simply divide this figure by 5000 and if the shipment is going via road divide by 4000. You then simply round the total up to the next whole kg. If this figure is greater than the actual weight you will be charged on the dimensional, as opposed to the actual weight of the consignment.

Can I track and trace my shipment?

Yes your shipment will have a tracking number assigned to it. This tracking number will be given to you at time of booking and can be accessed from collection through to final delivery.
