SGS Leads the Way to Frictionless Trade with Launch of New e-Customs Website

SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and
certification company, has launched a new website to enable businesses around
the world to achieve frictionless trade,
SGS E-Customs.

The new e-Customs Services portal has been developed by SGS in response
to the increasing complexities of trading internationally and the consta­­nt evolution of customs legislation and
Rigorously designed to support those involved in global
commerce, including transporters, forwarders, exporters and importers, it
brings together all the services, advice, resources and support needed to
create a faster, cheaper way to speed cargo through
border crossings, ports and beyond.

The new website brings together information, news and resources
for the following customs procedures: Customs Transit & Guarantee;
Import & Export Declarations; Process Automation; VAT Services & Fiscal
Representation and Origin Services.

Users benefit from online access to:

  • Brokerage Services – with easy access to a suite of customs
    related services such as Export, Import, Representation, VAT services,
    Certificate of origin, and Fiscal representation in several EU states
  • Multinational Coverage Customs Guarantees – enabling
    clients to submit transit declarations from 25 NCTS and non-NCTS countries
    through a single application. The multilingual application embeds all national
    rules so that clients can create their transit declarations themselves and
    monitor them from departure to termination
  • 24/7 support – a team of over 300 customs and
    logistics experts available to troubleshoot and advise on all matters connected
    to an organization’s e-Customs services related declarations

The portal features TransitNet, SGS’s unique multinational full transit
e-service that allows users to easily manage their customs transit requirements
for road, rail, Ro-Ro and barge transportation across 25 European countries
without having to buy software, apply for a customs guarantee or have
an in-house customs expert.

This multimodal service enables users to:

  • Monitor shipments under customs, end to end. For goods
    outside of the EU, SGS draws up export declarations
    processed in the Export Control System (ECS) to prevent any additional tax
  • Reduce waiting times at departure, border and arrival
    locations as SGS acts as an authorized consignor to ensure that transporters can
    cross borders efficiently
  • Save time and money by using a web-based application
    to create, submit and monitor transit declarations to the point they arrive at
    their destination and the declaration has been discharged

The new portal also includes access to SGS’s consultancy services to

procedures or this is a completely new process, SGS has the systems in place to
help companies in the UK, EU and the rest of the world successfully navigate
the changes that Brexit has introduced.
