How to use Transit procedures to move goods through Europe

The UK has left the EU single market and customs union leading to new administrative requirements for firms sending goods to or through the continent.

However, the UK remains a member of the Common Transit Convention (CTC) and a signatory to the TIR (Transports Internationaux Routiers). Use of transit procedures allow for the temporary suspension of duties, taxes and commercial policy measures that are applicable at import, with customs clearance formalities taking place at the point of destination rather than at the point of entry into the EU customs territory.
