The Amazon Partnered Carrier programme (PCP) has resumed small parcel delivery service with UPS between the UK and the EU. There is also an Amazon Partnered Carrier programme promotion running until the end of March.
Having left the EU’s single market and customs union on the 1st of January 2021 a customs border was established, resulting in an updated workflow for shipments between the UK and EU using the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme. First thing you need to do is to ensure that you are customs compliant when shipping goods across the UK-EU border. For more information, see Prepare your Amazon business for Brexit. Once you have booked your shipment, new steps are required to clear customs. For more information, see the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme – Cross-border shipment workflow frequently asked questions page.
