As a forwarder or customs agent, are you ready for Brexit?

With a no-deal Brexit, many parties will be coming to you for assistance as a freight forwarder or customs agent. Are you ready for that? Without you, the logistic chain will seize up after Brexit. You are an indispensable link. In order to avoid problems, we have a brief checklist for you:

For export:

  • do you perform pre-notifications to the terminal for your customers?
  • are you already connected to the Portbase service Notification Export Documentation via the web or EDI to enable you to do so?

For import:

  • do you perform pre-notifications to the terminal for your customers?
  • are you already connected to the Portbase service Notification Import Documentation via the web or EDI to enable you to do so?
  • have you already signed the terminal contract to use the service Notification Import Documentation at shortsea and ferry terminals via Portbase? You can contact us sales@portbase.com to have this arranged.

Please note! If you work via EDI and prenotify import documents to ferry terminals on behalf of your customers, you must use the updated EDI messages for Notification Import Documentation in your software. To be on the safe side, check this with your software supplier or IT department.

If you are not yet using Notification Import Documentation and/or Notification Export Documentation, please sign up today with Portbase. You can read much more about the Dutch chain solution for Brexit at Get Ready for Brexit.
