ASM SEQUOIA SOFTWARE WILL HELP FORWARDERS MEET NEWLY ANNOUNCED POST-BREXIT CUSTOMS PROCEDURES


ASM Chairman Peter MacSwiney gives cautious welcome to the new Border Operating Model published last week by the UK government

London, UK, Monday, 20th July, 2020 : Agency Sector Management (ASM) is working with customers to ensure they can comply with newly announced post-Brexit Customs procedures using its Sequoia software.

ASM’s online Customs platform is geared up to meet the requirements of the UK Government’s Border Operating Model, published last week and detailing for the first time the actions traders, hauliers, ports, and carriers will need to undertake to keep UK trade moving after Brexit.

The Model will be phased in over six months from 1st January 2021, and is set to be fully operational by 1st July 2021.

ASM Chairman Peter MacSwiney warns that the freight industry should still expect disruption when the new systems come into force on 1st January 2021.

“We welcome the new Border Operating Model as it provides some clarity to traders, and it means that at ASM we now know what we have got to do to ensure continued service,” said MacSwiney.

“We are making sure our users can meet the changes for minimal disruption and we are confident they are in a position to be able to comply with the new requirements.

“But as an industry we need to bear in mind that there is still potential for delays when the new systems kick in.”

ASM’s Sequoia Customs clearance software is used by freight forwarders across the UK supply chain and is a complete freight management platform that has been adapted to smooth out the Brexit process.

Ends.

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.
