We are still shipping to Europe but are experiencing a lot of delays. We are doing our job, UPS are doing their job but the local customs departments in individual European countries have not geared up to handle the volume of imports and so they have a back log of work that they are working through. This is causing delays with all couriers trying to move goods from the UK to recipients in Europe.
We have spoken to multiple shipping companies to try to work round the problem but it is across the board, all the shipping companies are facing the same issue as it is mainly down to the individual countries customs clearance capacity being exceeded, not the failings of the couriers themselves.
As time progresses the various customs clearance departments will start implementing systems which will be capable of handling the volume of goods and the problem will dissipate but this will take some weeks at a minimum. We, BC racing UK, have a European subsidiary company set up and are in the process of working through various systems to negate the delays but at the moment we are at the mercy of the inadequate customs clearance processes. Please take note that there could be a delays of weeks when ordering. Many orders go through without delay but many are taking longer than they should. This is out of our control.
