ASM TO GIVE FREE LUNCHTIME BRIEFINGS ON HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE NEW CUSTOMS DECLARATION SERVICE AT MULTIMODAL 2022 NEXT WEEK


ASM’s Peter MacSwiney will also take part in a panel discussion about the role of technology in building resilient supply chains during the show

London, UK, Tuesday 7th of June 2022 : Agency Sector Management (ASM) will be giving free lunchtime briefings at the Multimodal 2022 Exhibition on how to prepare for the new Customs Declaration Service (CDS), which comes into force for imports at the end of September, and next March for exports.

Peter MacSwiney, Chairman, ASM, and his team will be on hand on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th of June to offer advice on CDS, which will replace the UK’s legacy Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system.

The briefings will take place over a light lunch on stand C6 at the Multimodal 2022 Exhibition at the Birmingham NEC next week.

“We are already providing access to the CDS online training platform for more than two thirds of our user base through our Sequoia Customs clearance software,” said MacSwiney.

“As we work to help businesses prepare for the switch, we are aware that there are still a lot of questions about the new system, which we can help to answer.

“There are also businesses that have not taken steps to prepare for CDS, and they need urgent support to avoid facing non-compliance issues, which will rack up costs and cause delays.”

ASM, which has been providing Customs software solutions for forwarders for 36 years, is currently assisting more than 500 businesses that use Sequoia to be CDS-ready before the September deadline.

As part of ASM’s involvement in Multimodal 2022, MacSwiney will also take part in a panel discussion on the importance of technology in building resilient supply chains at 15.30 on Wednesday the 15th of June in the Multimodal seminar room.

He will be joined by thought leaders from across the supply chain to discuss the importance of collaboration and data sharing, as well as aims and targets for the next generation of technology.

ASM has been shortlisted for the Multimodal 2022 Technology Company of the Year Award, with the results to be announced on Tuesday 14th June at a gala dinner, at which ASM is a sponsor.

ASM’s General Manager Sharon Greer took part in a judging panel for the Multimodal Awards overseeing entries for the Shipper/Partner of the Year, the Multimodal Sustainability Award, the Young Logistics Professional of the Year Award, and the Innovation in Port Safety Award.

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.
