Industry body Logistics UK has formed an exclusive partnership with customs declarations experts AEB to help UK logistics operations prepare for the new trading conditions after Brexit Day on January 1.
Member organisations of Logistics UK will be able to get discounted access to the AEB software platform and be able to reduce administrative time and smooth the customs declaration process between the UK and EU.
“For many businesses trading with the EU, the new trading conditions from 1 January will be the first time that they have ever had to make customs declarations – our exclusive partnership with customs experts AEB aims to remove the anxiety and unfamiliarity which this could cause and facilitate a smooth, easy transit for goods to EU customers, saving members time and money in the process.”
Logistics UK members who wish to use the AEB platform will be offered a 5% lifetime discount for the four software packages. More information can be sourced here: www.logistics.org.uk/customsdeclarationsoftware
“At a time when there is still much to be agreed about the UK’s future relationship with the EU, Logistics UK has been urging members to prepare as much as possible ahead of the 31 December deadline,” continues Richardson. “Customs declarations will be required whether or not the UK reaches a free trade agreement with the EU, and by taking advantage of the AEB offer for Logistics UK members now, exporters can cross this area off their to do list as they prepare for our new relationship with the EU. We are committed to helping Britain continue trading smoothly with the EU from the end of the year and this new partnership will undoubtedly smooth the path to continued EU / UK trade in the future for those who take advantage of it.”
