Covid-19 Update

Eurosprint Freight Services COVID-19 Update

We have had a number of calls and emails over the past week regarding Coronavirus and how this will impact on Eurosprint and the Supply Chain.

We are responding individually to clients questions and offering re-assurances and contingency plans when needed.

The Directors are monitoring the situation continuously and following government recommendations.

Eurosprint is not currently affected by Coronavirus and we have options in place to allow people to work remotely should this be the required and sensible thing to do. Thankfully our operating systems are mostly paperless which means we can access documentation and systems remotely without being dependent on printing. We are requesting an increase in communication by email when possible in preparation for remote working. Our head office number is diverted when closed and we have added out of office numbers to all outgoing emails from today. Eurosprint will be available to you via email and telephone whenever needed.

Operationally our Road Freight services are continuing as normal, we have had some minor delays at borders but this is offset by significantly less traffic on the roads. We have seen a large spike in dedicated time-critical transport which is running as normal. Drivers are being asked to stay in vehicles unless advised otherwise. Air-freight is available but at reduced capacity and subject to quotation. Sea Freight seems to be running to schedule.

We are not panicking but carrying on as normal (with extra precautions) and would like to thank all our clients and suppliers for working with us during this troubling time.

Take care and stay safe!

UK Authorised Economic Operator Status

Eurosprint Freight Services are now certified as a UK Authorised Economic Operator by HMRC.

UK Autorised Economic Operator

AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark that shows our role in the international supply chain is secure and the customs controls are efficient and meet UK and EU standards.

To achieve AEO status all procedures of the business have been inspected and scrutinized by HMRC. Eurosprint have successfully demonstrated a consistency in our performance and processes along with a high level of knowledge and experience in customs procedures and international transport.

AEO is not a mandatory requirement, but it does give quicker access to some simplified customs procedures and, in some cases, the right to ‘fast-track’ shipments through some customs and security procedures. As the UKs final departure from the EU approaches customs clearances services will be in demand and an increase in “time critical freight” can be expected. Eurosprint are perfectly placed to offer both products which means we keep our customers products moving smoothly and deliver on time.

Eurosprint are very proud of the benefits AEO status will bring our clients and thankful to our loyal members of staff for the time and commitment that has gone into achieving this wonderful accreditation
