ASM, alongside BIFA and HMRC, ran a series of seminars ahead of the phased launch of the Customs Declaration Service (CDS), the system set to completely replace the existing system for Customs declarations in the UK.

Agency Sector Management (ASM), the British International Freight Association (BIFA), and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) combined efforts to offer advice and guidance to businesses affected by the implementation of the new CDS system.

These seminars addressed the following:

  • What CDS is
  • Why it is being introduced
  • When it is happening
  • How it will affect your business
