Custom changes are happening in all European countries
- are you ready?

The EU introduced some time ago the Union Customs Code legislation that requires all EU countries to exchange information digitally in the same way and also stipulates that the customs area must be paperless and completely electronic by 2025.

The goal is to increase the security and efficiency at EU borders by simplifying cross-border trade through common customs regulations and paperless and automated processes.

We are ready to guide your company through those changes. Get in contact with our local customs experts to discuss how these changes effects your business.
