About Cops Docs a Carnet Services Company

We are the only UK preparation company that deal solely with carnets .

The company was established by John Copleston, John used to manage the ITN shipping department.  In October 1988 John was given the opportunity to set up his own company, continuing to operate ITN’s shipping requirements and preparing the ATA carnets needed for the ITN camera crew, which we still do to this day.

As time went on, our client base grew, and now we prepare carnets and offer a complete ATA carnet management service for a wide range of companies, such as TV production companies, freelance photographers, magazines, exhibition companies, freight agents, theatre companies, and fashion designers.

This meant that we had to move to our current larger premises in 1998, situated less than two miles from the London Chamber’s Queen Street Head Office, allowing us to quickly collect carnets once they have been issued.

In December 2014 John made the decision to retire , leaving Jane & Tracy to take over the management of COPS DOCS Ltd .


Jane Wilson, who has worked for us from the beginning, and has also, had experience of working at both Heathrow & Gatwick dealing with freight exports and import clearance.
