Service description

The service Pre-arrival Cargo Declaration Import (4 hours) is part of the total service package offered by Portbase for the fast and efficient handling of all administrative obligations around incoming vessels and cargo.

The ENS is a European requirement and part of the Import Control System (ICS). For every bulk, general cargo, feeder and shortsea vessel coming from outside Europe, Customs requires a statement of all goods on board at least four hours before arrival at the first European port of call. Based on this, Customs then performs a safety & security scan.
