Fresh Produce Imports

Fresh produce is a speciality business and one which we are proud to be a leader in.

Due to our location in Sheerness which is one of the largest fresh produce ports in the UK we are able to control the import of fruit and vegetables through the port however the majority of our business now due to our computer links is at container ports outside of Sheerness. The list below advises which ports we are linked to and the services we can provide at each location.

  • Sheerness – Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

  • Tilbury - Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

  • Felixstowe - Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

  • Southampton - Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

  • Bristol – Customs clearance

  • Liverpool - Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

  • Grangemouth - Customs clearance, temperature controlled and ambient deliveries

Why Kleerfreight?

Fresh fruit and vegetables and their complex documentation and varying duty rulings are a test to the most experienced in the perishable forwarding community, due to our years of experience we are able to offer advice and information to assist both importers and forwarders alike, if in doubt ask.

In addition to deep sea arrivals, we have linked agents at all of the UKs major airports enabling us to cover any urgent air arrivals, clearance and deliveries which may arise. 

We are registered for the DEFRA system known simply as ‘PEACH’. This system is in place to enable perishable importers and agents to notify DEFRA of impending arrivals into the UK which may be liable to inspection.
A risk based assessment is carried out by their database and after your information has been run through the system you will either be issued a ‘certificate

of conformity’ or your cargo will be flagged for inspection.
 

We are able to act on your behalf making PEACH notifications for your shipments, registration is required for use of the system, then it is as easy as nominating us as your agent.
