CNS smart logistics provider, has unveiled a new purpose-built online tool for hauliers transporting goods to and from the UK.
The Border Entry and Exit Movement Service (BEEMS) provides a “digital fastrack” for freight customs “pre-lodgement process” to connect with transport offices and ferry operators to streamline the flow of goods.
The service also acts as a direct interface with the British Government’s Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) to keep drivers up to date during crossings to and from the UK to help minimise any delays at ports in the post-Brexit world.
The launch follows the announcement that from next year every vehicle carrying a commercial payload entering the UK on “pre-lodgement routes” will be required to have a Goods Movement Record (GMR), generated by GVMS.
Matthew Bradley, managing director of CNS, said: “New post-Brexit regulations may appear daunting but BEEMS makes the process faster and simpler, helping hauliers and their drivers feel in complete control.
“With digitally delivered communication ensuring no time is wasted on any journey, a new and successful era of smart trade can be delivered more efficiently.”
P&O Ferries said they will be mandating the use of BEEMS on its Cairnryan to Larne route from January.
Henrik Pedersen, freight sales director at P&O Ferries, said: “We are excited to be the first operator to offer this innovative new digital solution, which will put our customers in the driving seat.
“They will have to deal with a lot of new customs requirements after Brexit, making it essential that we work together to ensure trade keeps flowing for the thousands of businesses and millions of consumers who rely on our services.”
