Reliable Shipping

Reliable Shipping achieves highly sought after ETSF status

It is with great pleasure that Reliable can now confirm we have a fully ETSF authorized warehousing facility.

Our warehouse in Colchester, on the A12 corridor between London Gateway and the Port of Felixstowe, is now ETSF approved meaning that we are a recognized External Temporary Storage Facility (Formally known as ERTS) with HMRC.

We can now offer this service complete with our already impressive service portfolio.

Our customers and potential clients can now bring goods into the UK from outside the EU into our ETSF facility and defer duty and VAT payments until clearing goods into free circulation (within 90 days of arrival).
More information on Temporary Storage can be found at the UK Government website –
