Ferry agent offers fast-moving customs service

[ November 12, 2020   //   ]

Freight ferry ticket agent Freightlink Solutions has launched CustomsLink, a service that allows traders to deal with post-Brexit transition customs formalities.

 It has been designed to support fast-moving ferry and Eurotunnel traffic, such as hauliers, couriers and small traders with multi-drop loads and short lead times. Cloud-based software creates customs documentation, electronically via a step-by-step process, on desktop, smartphone and tablet devices and users can also submit safety and security declarations. Hauliers can update shipping routes, group loads and add and remove consignments whilst on the move.

Freightlink head of customs Amanda Gunn says that most existing offerings used legacy software based on the deep-sea container model, which did not work for hauliers or traders.
