Tour De France 2014 – Monday 7th July 2014

July 2nd, 2014

Tour De France 2014

The Tour De France, the world’s largest annual sporting event, is coming to London on Monday 7th July 2014.

Whilst this is great for the capital, it will have a knock-on effect to all road users. There will be extensive road closures that will be enforced, on the day, from 10:00. The cyclists are expected at around 14:00 and we are not expecting the roads to be open again until the evening.

The postcodes in which the race will run through are; EC4, E1, E4, E9 E10, E14, E15, E16, E17 and SW1.

Given the time of the closures and the inevitable disruption caused, we are expecting delays for collections and deliveries to the above postcodes. It goes without saying that we will endeavour to meet our usual high standards, but where delays do occur, we will actively communicate to manage expectations.

New EU international trade procedures require registration under EORI scheme.

October 10th, 2011

eu flag imageWith effect from 1st July 2009, a new piece of EU legislation requires all member states to adopt the Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) scheme.

All Economic Operators (defined as persons natural or legal whose businesses are regulated by Customs legislation) will need to use a unique EORI reference number in all electronic communications with Customs and other government agencies involved in the international movement of goods. In practice this means that the new regulations will apply to anyone involved with export, transit or import operations.

A unique EORI number will be allocated to each Economic Operator in the EU, to be used in all member states in which they operate, and this will replace all current customs identification numbers currently used for making import, export and transit declarations.

For further information about the EORI scheme please refer to the EU Commission’s website.
