What does this mean?
Clearly, this is causing significant delays for many innocent shipments, so any UK importers who receive goods by airmail from China and Hong Kong should expect delays for the foreseeable future. If any shipments are time-sensitive, they may need to consider alternative options - e.g. accompanied merchandise in baggage.
The Customs Practice can help
The Customs Practice has a presence in Hong Kong and can help exporters from Hong Kong and China to minimise the risk of delays at the UK border by ensuring their exports are fully compliant with EU Customs requirements.
