2022 sees the current operating system CHIEF used by UK Customs will no longer be available for Import Decarations. It is to be replaced by Customs Declaration Service (CDS). The new system promises to be faster and more automated giving declarants and import parties upto date live information regarding their import transactions.
Here at Gerlach UK we have set the wheels in motion and begun our road to CDS in 2021 when we chose our own operating system with CDS in mind. Since then we have built a CDS Project Team who have developed informative documentation and presentations to help get you on YOUR road to CDS. Training our staff to grow our knowledge of CDS testing multitude of scenarios to help ease your transition to the new system.
So we at Gerlach are the best contact for you when it comes to importing to UK. Before contacting us, please download the CDS Pack for Direct representation on the right.
Gerlach can also provide In-direct representation, please contact us for further information.
Please see the links below to the CDS presentations developed by Gerlach to get you behind the wheel.
