P&O Ferrymasters to offer customs declaration services

This is aimed at maintaining easy and fluid declaration for the import and export of goods to and from the UK, in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit.

 

If, at the end of October, the UK leaves the EU without a deal that maintains existing customs arrangements, goods may have to be declared to customs and this partnership will allow continuity and fluidity for P&O Ferrymaster’s customers.

 

SGS Maco will work with P&O Ferrymasters to facilitate its customers making customs declarations at ports in the Netherlands and Belgium and offer fiscal representation services for companies transporting goods throughout the EU. The customs declaration services will be organised in the UK by P&O Ferrymasters and SGS Maco staff, and through a partner in Ireland.

 

Mark Timmermans, Trailer Director, said: “This partnership allows us to offer a comprehensive declaration package to clients as part of our door to door transport operation. Our account managers will soon contact our customers to offer this service to them”.

 

Etienne Mulders, Managing Director at SGS Maco, said: “Brexit poses a great challenge for UK-EU traders. SGS Maco believes a joint effort by logistics service providers, customs agents and traders is necessary to ensure smooth post-Brexit trade.”
