Customs Roll-on Roll-off service (RoRo service)

Customs Channel Look-up

The RoRo service will identify possible customs interventions during the ferry crossing to Ireland from Great Britain only based on the Master Reference Numbers (MRN's) submitted in the PBN.

To streamline the clearance process where a customs or state agencies intervention is required, the RoRo service will;

  • provide real time information on such interventions to any party in the supply chain
  • process import documents requested from the Importer as part of these interventions
  • and
  • confirm the status of the routing assigned to the consignment.

The Customs Channel Look-up facility can be accessed 30 minutes out from arrival into the Irish Port on the RoRo service by selecting 'Customs Channel Look-Up'. The service should be checked regularly for any change in the status of the goods.

Where a Green channel 'Exit the Port' has been signalled in the Customs Channel Look-up service, the goods can move directly out of the Port on arrival.

Where a 'Call to Customs' channel has been signalled, follow the instructions displayed to report for inspection at the relevant customs terminal.
