Eurotunnel Freight Update - Important information for creating GMRs

We remind you that important changes will apply at the UK Border from 1st January 2022.

A GMR will be required for all crossings from 1st January 2022.

When creating a GMR, can you please ensure in GVMS when completing Section 2 "About your vehicle" that you enter the tractor registration number and not the trailer number.

This tractor registration number must correspond with the plate number that will be entered into the booking/Border Pass.

Failure to do so will result in you not being able to complete your border pass with the GMR, an error message "invalid GMR" will appear.

The same problem may occur directly at our pitstop. The tractor registration number must match in both GVMS and Border Pass and correspond with the vehicle which arrives on our terminal. Should this not be the case, the vehicle will be refused for travel.
