Webinar: What can you learn from Brexit to make your logistics more efficient?
The United Kingdom has left the European Union. Brexit is a fact, and there is now a hard border between the United Kingdom and the European Union. This hard border means new customs checks, documents, permits and procedures.
Impact on the Transport Sector
New customs checks at the border and the increased number of documents needed for a shipment increase the chances of delay for trucks crossing the border. Now more than ever, it is essential for carriers and freight forwarders to make sure their logistics operations run as efficiently as possible.
An efficient logistics operation means that your trucks don’t return home empty after delivering their load. An efficient logistics operation also means that all documents and permits (if applicable) are in place and filled out correctly. Empty miles and delays are an unnecessary waste of money.
How to increase the efficiency for your logistics operation: load factor and digital customs
There are different ways in which companies can drive down cost. One of them is increasing your loads to minimize empty kilometres. Another way is to benefit from the knowledge of customs specialists from Customs Support. Both companies will help you tackle inefficient logistics and waiting times at borders.
In this webinar, you will hear firsthand how Teleroute has helped companies increase their revenues. Let’s say your company specializes in transporting goods between Germany and Great Britain. Now, if one of your clients has a one-off load to Italy, you don’t want to tell them no. You also don’t want to make a one-off trip to Italy. You can then offer the load on Teleroute and find a fellow transportation company that does have lanes to Italy, similarly, if you travelling to one country with a full load but you don’t have loads for your return home trip then you will use Teleroute to avoid empty running.
Exporting goods means crossing borders with customs checks. Depending on the country of destination and the products you are exporting there are different requirements in terms of documents, certificates and paperwork. Processes and procedures also differ per country. If you are not fully aware of the requirements this can lead to unnecessary waiting times at borders and even penalties or refusal of entry for your products. In this webinar, you will also hear from Customs Support to ensure this doesn’t happen. Customs Support has been helping companies run smoother and burdenless custom border procedures, with their knowledge and experience they help to create the documents and get the permits you need.
