GAC Adds Cargo Declaration Service to Aid Clients with EU ‘Brexit’ Paperwork

GAC Adds Cargo Declaration Service to Aid Clients with EU ‘Brexit’ Paperwork

GAC has introduced a new centralized service to help ship owners navigate the import paperwork required for European Union (EU) ports from outside the Union.

Operators of vessels carrying such cargo must declare cargo information to the customs authorities in advance of the vessel’s arrival. GAC is launching this new service to help ease the administrative burden with a dedicated team formed to offer clients information and guidance on the process, and to handle customs paperwork on their behalf.

This new value added service allows operators to delegate Entry Summary Declarations for all EU member states where their vessels call to GAC, regardless of whether or not it is the nominated agent handling the port call. Customers can utilize this service either as a stand-alone solution or as part of a package.

Wynne Raymond, GAC UK’s Tanker Manager, says: “Recent events including the Brexit vote in the UK have highlighted the need for expertise to help clients navigate the paperwork when dealing with the EU. By drawing on the GAC global network and regional specialist expertise, we are offering customers the option to channel their EU Cargo Declaration matters through a single point of contact, simplifying the process and giving peace of mind that there will be no delays due to customs requirements. As an added advantage, economies of scale mean that we are able to offer this valuable service at a very competitive fee.”
