About Us

At the onset of Brexit, the solution to the confusion at the customs border, and miles-long lines of truck traffic piled up in Southern England, was inspired by Switzerland. The team at F&B Customs LTD is here to bring Swiss experience and precision to the UK customs clearance process.

The new UK customs clearance project, Franzosini and Butti F&B LTD, is the result of over 40 years of partnership working towards smooth customs clearance operations between the EU and Switzerland, and 30 years experience in the UK. Like Switzerland, the UK is now outside of the EU, and faces similar customs clearance challenges. The team at F&B LTD is extremely familiar with customs clearance needs of post-Brexit UK.

Behind the Story

F&B is a collaboration of two family owned companies. Together, they will help existing and new clients navigate the difficulties of customs clearance and import/export in post-Brexit UK 

Our Team

Our success is made up of ambitious, competent people, capable of taking on innovative and exciting challenges. The work environment is engaging, young, stimulating. Professional growth is ensured by a management that is attentive to the value of each one and by the possibility of participating in complex and diversified projects, capable of satisfying even the most sophisticated professional needs.
