8. Customs Warehouse

As part of Brexit mitigation as well as compliance, I was responsible for applying Private Customs Warehouse on behalf of a manufacturer who had various off-site storage locations.

I had to collect all the information from various applications which, as the company was not accredited with AEO happened to be 4 different application as well as reapplying for CCG (Customs Comprehensive Guarantee). This was Extremely difficult due to tasks falling outside my experience. IT interfacing with the CMS (Customs Management System), inventory management, SAP and Freight Forwarder interfaces all within the scope of the project.

The project was successfully completed in 3 months as well as the audit taking place during month 4. The company received their Customs Warehouse during month 5 of the project.
