New customs service launched
PSP Logistics has launched a new service for import customs clearances as part of its preparations for Brexit.
An external trainer was brought to PSP Logistics to educate the operations team so everyone can confidently use the CHIEF system (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) that records the declaration to customs of goods by land, air and sea.
As Brexit draws closer the team at PSP Logistics is preparing for what could be a monumental change to the way freight is moved between the UK, Europe and beyond, explained director Jo Dixie-Goodwin.
The potential end of the Free Trade Agreement could mean freight entering and leaving the UK could be subject to new customs regulations and tariffs.
“Although we are still no further along with Brexit than we were three years ago, we know that on 31st October there could be some huge changes affecting our industry and we are determined to be prepared for every eventuality,” explained MD Frank Dixie.
“We are a very important part of the supply chain and need to make the transition as smooth as possible for our clients.”
PSP Logistics has also purchased customs port badges for the main UK ports that will allow it to customs clear freight coming in. The service will also be offered to other freight companies and UK importers.
