UK Carrier Scheme

On Wednesday 1 May, applications to the UK Carrier (UKC) Scheme opened for Fast Parcel Operators and operators within the Royal Mail Group. 

The UKC Scheme is the authorisation scheme that will help businesses to physically move consumer parcels from Great Britain to Northern Ireland from 30 September 2024. It will allow businesses to send these parcels without completing any customs or safety and security declarations.

Businesses can apply to use the UKC Scheme if they are responsible for physically transporting consumer parcels from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. 

Consumer parcels are defined as those moving from: 

  • business to consumer (B2C)  
  • consumer to business (C2B)  
  • consumer to another consumer (C2C)
