Providing the best service to our customers is our priority
The UK's exit from the European Union as of 1/1/2021 requires new customs formalities and declarations. As the United Kingdom becomes a third country, the port of Calais becomes a customs border representing the first point of entry and last point of exit for travellers and goods between the European Union and the British Isles.
Port Boulogne Calais has invested more than 12 million euros in new digital infrastructure and processes to enable the port of Calais to maintain the smooth flow of its traffic for both passengers and freight for both import and export, while meeting the new obligations in customs, veterinary and phytosanitary terms.
The port of Calais has worked closely with all the stakeholders involved - French Customs, maritime and rail operators, state departments etc - with the aim of providing the best possible service to our customers by working to create a "smart border" based on the use of new technologies to ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
