ATA Carnet, TIR and paper SAD movements via GVMS locations

Updated: Mar 14, 2023

Effective from 28 March 2023, HMRC has advised that Goods Movement Reference (GMR), which has been mandatory for all vehicles using the freight route at GVMS locations / roro ports and vehicles moving goods under transport contract, will need to be raised before the goods arrive at the Internal Border Facility (IBF) or the port.  

If you move goods via GVMS locations, using an ATA Carnet, TIR Carnet or paper SAD you must ensure your ATA/TIR/SAD references are included in a Goods Movement Reference (GMR) before attending the port/IBF for endorsement of the documentation, where any holds placed on the GMR will be released.  

If you do not include your ATA/TIR/SAD references in the GMR, your movement could be delayed.  If you are planning on using a carnet and you still aren’t sure how to complete it, please make sure to check our upcoming ATA Carnet Step-by-Step Workshop on 22nd of March, where we will cover the step-by-step process of applying for an ATA Carnet and what you should know to successfully manage it. Topics that will be covered:

  • What is an ATA Carnet

  • The application process through eCert

  • The General List

  • How the Security works and your different options
