For those who are not aware we have had many success over the years acting for transport companies who have had their vehicles sezied at UK ports due to contraband being discovered by Border Force.
In the most recent case which had only resolved today we have managed to secure the release of a Scania G450 Tractor and a Krone SDP 27 Trailer unit for our client.
The units were seized in November 2021 when 400,000 undeclared cigarettes were discovered in palets amongs a legitimate load. The amount of duty which could have been evaded should the enterprise be successful was over 150,000.00 GBP.
In acting for our client we made representations to the deciding body the NPSU which stands for the National Post Seizure Unit.
