Heathrow Import Clearance Services Limited was established in 1988 and this year 2018 we are celebrating 30 years in business. Operating under the trading name of HICS Worldwide we were one of the first independently owned customs brokers to offer a complete brokerage package for courier, airfreight and seafreight arrivals here in the UK. Our development over the past 30 years can be attributed to the knowledge and professionalism of the staff who have an accumulation of over 100 years experience within the industry. We now have full clearance facilities at Gatwick and Stansted airports along with Heathrow.
