Exportation and Brexit: before and after 

Before post-Brexit rules took effect, all that was required for shipments from France to the UK was a declaration of exchange of goods (DEB). 

Since Brexit took effect on 31st December 2020, goods are now pre-declared on both sides of the UK-France border, although this in itself does not give them clearance to cross the border. Clearance data is collated and fed into the GVMS (Goods Vehicle Movement Service) to produce a unique barcode called a goods movement reference (GMR), which allows goods into the UK. 

Once a GMR has been scanned at the port, a truck carrying goods can proceed on to a ferry or train. When a truck arrives in the UK, it will either carry straight on with its journey or be directed to an Inland Border Facility (IBF) site for further inspection by customs officials.
