24/7 Customs clearance at Dunkirk Port
(Posted on 19/12/18)
The Regional Directorate of the Customs Authorities in Dunkirk has authorized customs clearance 24/7 on Dunkirk Port. The freight forwarding company DSV, at the origin of the request, has been the test operator of the system since November 15, 2018.
Until now, it was possible to validate declarations outside the opening hours of the customs services, but required the effective presence of the operator. DSV is the first operator to implement 24/7 automation for the validation of customs declarations.
For Stéphane Raison, President of the Executive Board: "24/7 customs clearance will accelerate the port throughput of containerized goods on Dunkirk Port. In concrete terms, releases of containers can be scheduled for ships operating at night or on weekends, thus solving urgent cases for customers".
France's third-ranking port, Dunkirk is well known as a port handling heavy bulk cargoes for its numerous industrial installations.
Classified as the 7th port of the North Europe Range which extends from Le Havre to Hamburg, it is also France's leading port for ore and coal imports; France's leading port for containerised fruit imports; France's leading port for copper imports; and France's second-ranking port for trade with Great Britain.
