Our Customers Also Ask…

Still have queries? We’ve answered some of the frequently asked questions that customers have about import and export services.

Simply put, import is the process of bringing goods into a country while export is the process of taking goods out.

This means that the processes of import and export are inherently linked, as exporting a product means it will end up being imported somewhere at the other end.

Different regulations and customs apply to goods as they cross over the various borders between countries, so it is important to choose a forwarder for your shipments that has a good understanding of these facets of import and export to ensure a smooth and timely delivery.

Allegro Freight Forwarding offers import and export services to and from the UK or anywhere in the world. We make sure that the process is as streamlined as possible, meaning the only difference to you will be where your goods are sourced from and what their destination is.

The primary imports for the UK are fuels, raw materials like precious metals, appliances, and pharmaceutical products.

The primary exports for the UK are machinery, automobiles, and electronic equipment. The UK is also an exporter of financial services and other facets of the service industry.

While these are the main imports and exports, there is still plenty of involvement in the UK for international and domestic forwarding of goods from manufacturing, retail, and pharmaceuticals of all varieties. Other industries also play a role in the ecosystem of import and export in the UK, and Allegro has the facilities to adhere to your needs.

Exchange rates for currencies from different countries can have a surprisingly large effect on import and export. This can impact several aspects of international trade, including:

  • Changes in import costs for things like raw materials depending on variations in the exchange rate.
  • Changes in export values for other goods.
  • Possible conversion fees for exchanging currencies.

If a country’s currency increases in value, the goods it produces rise in value as well. The inverse is also true, where a decrease in value results in lower valuation for goods and services. These differences can affect the demands of materials and goods for both import and export, eventually leading to changes in the quantity of shipments for these things.
