Manage your customs documentation for air transport with CAS, connected to CCS-UK

When importing or exporting goods via air cargo, you need to submit customs documentation to and receive responses from the customs authorities, just like when you are importing and exporting via road or sea transport. To be able to submit and receive your customs formalities for air transport, you need to use CCS-UK, the UK’s electronic air cargo community that connects airlines, freight forwarders, ground handlers, hauliers, and HMRC/CDS. CCS-UK facilitates the sharing of information that’s essential to the efficient movement of the UK’s air exports and imports. To lodge your declaration via CCS-UK, you need a CCS-UK agreement (like a badge) and customs management software that is connected to CDS.
