GAC eases EU customs burden

[ December 14, 2016   //   ]

Shipping and marine services company GAC has introduced a new centralised service to allow ship owners declare cargo information to the customs authorities in advance of the vessel’s arrival for import cargoes to European Union (EU) ports from outside the Union. It has formed a dedicated team of fiscal experts formed to offer clients information and guidance on the process, and to handle customs paperwork on their behalf. Operators can delegate Entry Summary Declarations for all EU member states where their vessels call to GAC, regardless of whether or not it is the nominated agent handling the port call. Customers can take advantage of the service either as a stand-alone solution or as part of a package through the GAC’s Global Hub Services.
