Shipping major launches online customs clearance platform
29 Apr 2019 - by
Maersk Line today announced the launch of a customs clearance online shipping management platform in seven European countries – and plans to expand the offering across the world by the end of 2019.
Germany, France, Denmark, The Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom and Spain are the early adopters.
"This new one-stop-shop allows us to timeously and efficiently handle export and import declarations for our customers. The solution provides downstream benefits of full governance and compliance, and eliminates the need to provide a quote as pricing is displayed online, saving three to five minutes per quote," explains Vincent Clerc, chief commercial officer of AP Moller - Maersk.
"In other words, it saves our customers time, money and headaches, reducing the number of intermediaries they deal with from three or four to just one and reducing paperwork which subsequently reduces the time spent on transactional procedures."
This new functionality will cover all types of cargo for all Maersk brands.
