Transhipment Licences


A Transhipment Licence is required to permit certain goods being transhipped or transiting through the UK. There are four Open General Transhipment Licences (OGTLs) which you may be entitled to use if you can meet all the specified terms and conditions. Alternatively, you may need to apply for a Standard Individual Transhipment Licence (SITL).

All applications for an OGTL or SITL should be made via SPIRE.
