Brexit has created the need for an additional 100 million Customs declarations annually, which will be mirrored in the EU.
Achieving this, for the UK alone, despite current numbers of staff working in this field, will require an additional 50,000 customs staff; who must be trained and up to speed. The customs industry is notoriously difficult in finding recruits, even in the best of times, plus achieving the much needed expertise, but now that Brexit is here the customs declarations must be made without sufficient staff to carry out this process. there is no time left !!!
To reduce time and limited resources on customs brokers, in an ideal world, it would be desirable that all customs data be shared electronically by the relevant shippers, however, the majority of shippers, are not accustomed to customs declarations and use either hard copy documents or PDF´s. This method in today's world is cumbersome and increases time and money spent on already limited resources.
