To comply with the new regulation of EU Commission which imposes on shippers a duty of sending pre-notifications for goods which are subject to phytosanitary control once entering the EU from third countries, SGS introduced a new service line for clients called CHED pre-notifications. Such pre-notifications are created in external system known as TRACES, to enable proper Import clearance procedure.
For any trucks that will enter the EU via France and Ireland, a separate ICS/ENS declaration is required to be submitted to the French and Irish ICS systems. TransitNet has developed a connection to both ICS systems allowing users to submit their transits to the NCTS system and their ICS/ENS declarations to the French and Irish ICS systems at the click of a button.
TransitNet is connected to the UK’s Goods Vehicle Movements System, meaning that once a transit has been submitted and processed by the local NCTS system, the customs declarations will automatically be registered on GVMS and a Goods Movement Reference (GMR) will be provided via TransitNet.
French Smart Border System (SI):
All movements to and from the EU via France need to be registered in the French Smart Border System. SGS offers to do this on behalf of their clients taking away another layer of complexity from their clients.
Netherlands Portbase/Belgian Port Systems:
Transits that start from or transit through the ports in Rotterdam and Belgium will need a pre-notification sent to the local port system. TransitNet is connected to the Portbase system in Rotterdam port and the port systems in the Belgian ports including Antwerp and Zeebrugge allowing these messages to be generated on behalf of our clients
SGS’ Customs Services:
SGS also offers a range of customs services including software for self-service clients to make import, Export and excise declarations or a full customs brokerage service where SGS will handle the customs procedures for you. SGS’ eGTA customs software interfaces with TransitNet allowing users of TransitNet to import the data of a previously created Export declaration from eGTA for reuse in a transit in TransitNet.
