Kim and Alexander, you attend Tulldagen regularly. What was your first impression of this year’s trade fair?
Kim: It was a great event, with more than 200 people coming together and sharing news and insights on customs topics. We had this year also our own booth at the fair to present and talk also about Gerlach and our services and solutions.
Alexander: Yes, but we also have to admit that compared to the last Tulldagen in 2019 there were less visitors due to the Covid restrictions. But it was anyway great to meet in person and network.
What were the main topics discussed at the fair?
Alexander: The topic of digitalization of customs was very much in the foreground. We gained some insights on what upcoming customs projects the customs authorities are planning. Also, the HS Codes updates that apply from January 2022 were presented and discussed.
Kim: Another topic was related to Trade Compliance and on “Combiterms” – why it is so important to have the buyer and seller roles and responsibilities in mind.
What are your two main take aways for Gerlach Sweden?
Kim: Firstly, I think we had quite intense and good dialogue and exchange which was of high value for us.
Alexander: True! And secondly, I would add, that it again highlighted the importance of having our digital projects and ambitions as high priority as we want to shape the future with best solution for our customers.
