Courier handles UK’s first electronic ATA Carnet

[ July 5, 2022   //   ]

Critical logistics operator Dynamic International has processed the UK’s first electronic ATA Carnet at Heathrow using a new app developed by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).

The film and television logistics specialist worked with sister company Dynamic Dox, the UK’s largest independent ATA Carnet provider, to move camera equipment from the UK to Belgium using the app to electronically process the Customs documents as part of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI)’s eATA pilot scheme.

The UK Border Force at Heathrow was able to process the documents in under a minute.

LCCI, which is the ATA guaranteeing organization for the UK, is running the eATA pilot scheme to trial the digital processing of international Customs documents using the ICC app.

LCCI’s eATA pilot is being rolled out at Heathrow airport, with airports in Belgium, Canada, China, Norway, and Switzerland, also testing digital carnets using the ICC app.
