PRACTICAL CUSTOMS SOLUTIONS
FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADERS

BKR CONSULTANTS
LIMITED

BKR is a UK based consultancy firm, with roots in customs brokerage and international trade. We provide professional and practical guidance on all matters associated with customs clearance, customs compliance and supply chain efficiency.

Every year, supply chains are becoming larger and more complex. Customs processing is now more important than ever before and may ultimately be perceived as an inconvenience to the way your business operates. We, however, think differently.

Our belief is that businesses which embrace the challenges of customs processing can in turn develop critical knowledge to transform the way their supply chain operates and convert a perceived “inconvenience” into a competitive advantage that strengthens the core of the business.

OUR TEAM


Our approach to providing practical customs advice originates from the roots of our leadership team.
They have a wealth of background experience, derived from working within the front line of the industry as customs brokers and holding senior positions within freight forwarding and logistics companies.
