Answer

If you are in need of a S8 departure advice to confirm the departure of the goods from the UK/EU and to add to your ‘basket of evidence’ for VAT zero rating. Then the party who declared the goods to customs on your behalf should be able to provide that. However you may have to request it as part of your requirements. Unless you do your own customs declarations and use the freight forwarder to move the goods from A to B? On that basis Bill of Lading, Delivery notes, Dangerous Goods note (if applicable) can be provided by most freight forwarders.
Hope that helps.
