Update on DFDS customs
Please be advised as from 1st May 2016, DFDS Immingham will be switching to phase 2 import manifesting and as a result shall require all non EU cargo arriving ex Liner Services into their terminals at Immingham, Rosyth and Newcastle to be Customs cleared through inventory linked system (CHIEF).
As a consequence cargo shall only be released upon receipt of confirmation of clearance from the inventory linked system. Paper documentation will no longer be sufficient to guarantee release.
Your respective Customs clearing agent will be able to advise on the inventory linked system in order to facilitate the required release.
