Our customers were ready to ship on Day 1 of Brexit, but those who did not choose a digital solution must continue to adapt to new formalities and customs brokers are already overloaded. As new customs requirements continue to roll out, economic operators and logistics providers need to make sure they comply to ensure uninterrupted movement of goods. CAS is a centralised, collaborative platform designed to automate regional and worldwide customs declarations quickly and accurately, future-proofing your customs compliance. A CAS subscription combined with our Managed Customs Services for declarations is about half the cost of collaborating with customs brokers. Do you want to save costs while increasing efficiency?
With one single message, CAS simultaneously files an export declaration from the country of departure and an import declaration in the country of destination, combined with transit to ensure frictionless border crossing.
In the background, our Legal Content team keeps CAS up to date with all the latest legislation for each country so you can rest assured your shipments will clear customs with the proper documentation.

C4T has a close working relationship with HMRC, is connected to CHIEF today, and is in the process of connecting to CDS for a seamless transition as soon as it is launched. We have also integrated with NCTS and GVMS for transit and Community Service Providers such as Destin8 to satisfy formalities at each port. With these integrations, CAS is able to automate your declarations from end to end, with no action needed on your part.
CAS is built modularly, allowing you to start with Declarations functionality for immediate administrative cost savings and scale with value-added modules including Insights, Special Procedures, Master Data, and Origin Management that provide visibility into the totality of your customs operations and help reduce duty costs.
