Goods movement vehicle service (GVMS)
The Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) was created for carriers to consolidate pre-prepared customs export and import declarations moving across the UK border from the EU. The system was introduced on January 1, 2020, and is a solution that was a response to the UK's exit from the European Union.
The GVMS Goods Vehicles Movement System is an English system for consolidating export and import clearance into a barcode - Goods Movement Reference (GMR). The barcode created is read by an automatic license plate recognition system. Thanks to this process, the international movement of goods to the UK has definitely become much simpler. GVMS is the responsibility of every carrier, and it also involves registering an EORI number in the UK and declaring the product being transported to HMRC.
You can outsource the GMR to a third party. On the Spot Broker LTD offers this to any carrier who finds the process complicated. Contact our team if you need GVMS support. Knowing that it can be complicated, our team will help you prepare the GVMS submission, and generate the GMR barcode. In this way, we ensure the smooth crossing of goods. We also prepare the ENS document you need to create the Irish equivalent of GVMS, the PBN needed to cross from the UK to Ireland.
Crucial benefits of GVMS
GVMS is designed to make the movement of goods between the European Union and the UK as simple as possible. Its most important benefits can therefore include:
- Reduced time in ports which can translate into lower transportation costs.
- Reduction of all formalities to a minimum.
- Easier tracking of goods, thus increasing their security.
- Greater protection and security not only for the goods themselves, but also for the company.
