PRACTICAL CUSTOMS SOLUTIONS
FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADERS
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 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.
"What We Do" can ultimately be answered by "Why We Do It". Our aim is to promote four crucial components, which can be identified within any successfully trading business around the world:
Efficiency, Stability, Structure and Optimisation.
Guiding your strategic decisions and helping you adapt to the constantly evolving rules and regulations of international trade.
An outlet for companies looking to optimise their supply chain and convert customs processing into a competitive advantage.
A service to ensure your business is healthy from the inside out and operating compliantly as per your obligations as a company involved in international trade.
Redefining and integrating new ways of working to promote efficiency and streamline operating costs through the structure of your supply chain.
I worked with Toby for a number of years to ensure that my business was Brexit ready.

Toby has a way of explaining complex subjects giving the customer the spring board to successfully implement a customs strategy.
