What is the GVMS?

The Goods Vehicle Movement Service will link declaration references together (EAD/MRN/TAD) into a single reference for the driver to present at the border to prove the goods on board the vehicle have pre-lodged declarations.

It will also allow the linking of the movement of the goods to declarations, enabling the automatic arrival / departure (where applicable) of goods in HMRC systems so that goods boarding on the EU side can be processed en route.

It can automate the Office of Transit function, marking the entry of goods into the UK customs territory and allowing notification of the outcome of UK import declarations (i.e. cleared or uncleared) in HMRC systems. These can then be sent to the person in control of the goods by the time they physically arrive in the UK, so that they know where they need to proceed.
