Posting VAT on export


I have received an invoice from a freight company who has charged VAT on an export. I've dealt with VAT on imports to the UK before, but not 100% sure why we have received a bill for VAT on goods that has been exported !!!

Could I be right in thinking that the VAT will have been charged when good were imported to the EU, rather than this being charged at export, and therefore the VAT was a liability to the EU country? If so do we need to record this on our UK VAT return, or can we just charge this VAT to our customer as a disbursement?

Thank you.
