Legal requirement

Over the course of 2024, the use of the PN/TS customs system will become mandatory for the maritime sector. This new system provides for digital registration and control of goods as they enter. 

 

The Inbound Release Platform helps companies interact with the PN/TS system to easily fulfil their legal obligations.

PN staat voor Presentation Notification (Kennisgeving van Aanbrengen) en TSD staat voor Temporary Storage Declaration (Aangifte Tijdelijke Opslag).

Benefits

The platform allows the various players within the supply chain to share information securely and transparently

 

The platform offers the following benefits specifically for the declarant:

During the declaration process

  • A 'unique source of truth' in the new, more complex declaration process.
  • Make declarations faster and more efficiently through the reuse of data.
  • Fewer phone calls and e-mails to the import department of the shipping agent to request freight list information.
