PLANT PARTS LTD CHOOSE ASM’S SEQUOIA SOFTWARE TO PROVIDE POST-BREXIT CUSTOMS WAREHOUSE TRADING SOLUTION


Sequoia delivers tailored Customs compliance operations for businesses of all sizes and runs both CHIEF and CDS Customs systems for UK trade

London, UK, Tuesday 10th August 2021: Agency Sector Management’s (ASM) Sequoia Customs platform has been selected to provide full compliance for a new in-house Customs warehouse operated by Plant Parts, a family-owned independent construction machinery parts stockist.

Since new UK trade rules started in 2021, Plant Parts developed an in-house Customs warehouse to continue its operations and Sequoia has provided the flexibility, compliance, and range of services for the task.

“By bringing these systems in-house with Sequoia, we now have a rapid, cost-effective, and easy to use platform to ensure our compliance and quality customer services,” said Richard Finch, Director, Plant Parts.

“The new rules have caused disruption, so we have actively sought out a solution that can fit our exact needs which was found in Sequoia, and the ASM team have provided education and support throughout the whole process.”

Sequoia integrates into existing back-office systems and can be customised to make sure businesses are not paying for non-required additional features.

“The Sequoia solution can be customised to fit the needs of any sized business needing UK Customs compliance in the post-Brexit world,” said Peter MacSwiney, Chairman, ASM.

“For businesses that are importing and exporting single items, the additional costs created by the new Customs declaration can be very high, and the time-consuming paperwork takes up valuable resources.

“Sequoia provides a clear, cost-effective, tailored approach that is connected to customs and all port community systems to process import, export, and transit shipments efficiently and accurately.”

ASM is an independent not-for-profit company, and its one-stop-shop Sequoia Customs Clearance software is used across the international freight supply chain to improve efficiency and compliance.

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.
