Prohibited goods include illegal drugs, offensive weapons, and materials that pose a threat to national security. Additionally, certain wildlife products protected under international conservation agreements are restricted to combat illegal trafficking. The UK also prohibits the importation of counterfeit goods, products infringing intellectual property rights, and items deemed culturally or morally offensive.

Major Air Cargo Port

Belfast International Airport
East Midlands Airport
Belfast International Airport In 2018, Belfast International Airport handled over 70,000 tonnes of air cargo, making it one of the most important regional airfreight hubs in the UK. Because of Northern Ireland’s relative isolation from the rest of the United Kingdom and Europe, superior air freight services are essential for local businesses to access both domestic and international markets.
East Midlands Airport (EMA) is the UK’s busiest ‘pure’ cargo airport, with a total cargo volume after London Heathrow airport. Every year, East Midlands (EMA/EGNX) transports around 370,000 tonnes of freight. Many shipping firms use EMA as a significant worldwide hub. The airport’s booming cargo facilities are expanding to meet the demands of importers and exporters from around the UK, with plenty of opportunities to develop. EMA maintains a thriving cargo logistics industry 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can accommodate the largest freight and passenger planes.
