ASM INVESTS IN EXPANDING IT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE TEAM TO TACKLE CUSTOMS CHALLENGES


The Customs software provider is set to deliver a smoother client experience with its newly bolstered team

London, UK, Wednesday 1st March 2023: Agency Sector Management (ASM) has undertaken a major recruitment drive as part of its strategy to prepare for anticipated challenges set to confront UK-based forwarders in the wake of recent Customs and BREXIT-related changes in regulations.

The scaled-up team across its customer service and tech departments is set to guide ASM customers through Customs procedural modifications, such as the migration of export declarations from the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system to Customs Declaration Service (CDS).

Last December, HMRC announced an extension for exporters to make the transition to CDS to 30th November 2023, coinciding with significant changes being introduced for transit.

“We are acutely aware of the time-critical nature of our industry and, as such, the need for ASM customers to be fully supported by a well-staffed team, with enquiries being responded to accurately, expertly, and in good time, with all our systems up and running efficiently,” said Peter MacSwiney, Chairman, ASM.

“We hope ASM’s expanded team will provide much-needed resources to support our industry through the upcoming changes.”

The new hires will be fulfilling roles in administration, technical support, service management, and IT development.

ASM, which has been providing Customs software solutions for forwarders for nearly 30 years, is currently assisting more than 500 businesses that use Sequoia to migrate to CDS.

ASM will be exhibiting at Multimodal 2023, taking place at NEC Birmingham, on the 13th – 15th June, and will be sharing industry insight and the latest updates around NCTS-phase 5 and CDS exports.

You can find the ASM team on Stand 4052 (next to the BIFA village).

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
