UK Exports

CHIEF CDS export declaration software UK: Avoiding disruptions

In the UK, export declarations are managed in CHIEF or CDS. Businesses looking for efficiency and compliance need to implement UK export declaration software.

Why you need software to master UK export declarations via CHIEF and/or CDS

In the digital age, moving goods efficiently across borders in compliance with all customs rules, depends on flexible customs software. Automation saves time and money, and digitisation is essential to keep a competitive edge today. This is why more than 5,000 businesses across industry sectors rely on AEB solutions for managing global trade and logistics processes from procurement to fulfillment. 

In the UK, it's a high priority now to automate customs processes. If you are exporting to the UK, export declarations must be filed with HMRC's customs systems CHIEF and CDS. CHIEF stands for "Customs Handling of Import & Export Freight" and is the older system of the two. CDS stands for "Customs Declaration Service" and is the new HMRC customs system. 

If your business is exporting goods across UK borders, or you plan to do so after the Brexit Transition Period has ended on December 31, 2020, your supply chain efficiency relies on automated export declaration management. It's high time to get started.
