The TIR system allows UK customs officials to pack and seal goods before they’re transported outside the EU. The load won’t need to be inspected by customs officials at border crossings.
Vehicles must meet set rules to be used like this.

Apply at least one month before the vehicle needs to be inspected. You have to pay a fee for the inspection.
