Transforming the World of Customs

We are setting the standard for the next generation of customs management. In an industry notorious for its complexity and fragmentation, C4T’s digital-first approach makes compliance convenient and simple. 

Our mission

Realise the strategic potential of customs

We listen closely to our customers, and the market and build features and functionality that meet their needs. We will not rest until we have transformed the role of customs from a cost centre to a strategic player, providing invaluable contributions to organisational growth.

Our story

Customs4trade was founded in 2004 as a consultancy, with a goal to move beyond providing guidance to developing a technology solution that could tackle the complexities of customs head on. CAS was developed through a unique team of customs experts combined with best-of-breed technology, creating a one-of-a-kind software solution that automates customs and trade compliance.

We are committed to helping organisations go beyond compliance to make customs and trade a strategic component of their growth. We have created a team with a can-do attitude and the drive to set the standard for the next generation of customs management. 

Our Executive Team

C4T’s founders have supplemented their wealth of experience in customs and product management with the backing of world-class investment partners that provide the advice, experience, and connections needed to become the #1 Global Customs Solution.
