Automating Brexit Trade Declarations

by | Aug 9, 2021

From 1st January 2021 all goods moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland required a UK customs import declaration. Businesses that have thrived since then are those that have sped up digital transformation in their supply chain.

Regardless of those companies who are struggling or succeeding, all are reporting being swamped with new paperwork for moving goods to the EU or Northern Ireland leading to Brexit form inertia.

The main challenges are: 

  • There are many new and confusing forms to fill in, in order to sell in certain markets
  • Customer loyalty is threatened, hindering business growth 
  • Completing forms manually drives significant cost, causes delays and there are penalties for getting them wrong

Companies have had to put in extra effort to sorting the problem with teams having to perform repetitive and mundane tasks to fill in the additional paperwork. And collating trade data from dispersed systems along the supply chain can also be tricky. 

Automation that collates the correct product, weight and quantity data from the right system to create the Declarations paperwork delivers accuracy, speed and compliance, with zero effort – avoiding delays, keeping your customers satisfied.
