NCTS (New Computerised Transit-System)

The NCTS Customs Transit Procedure

Clients that transport goods to/from two points located within the EU can eliminate the additional burden of customs duties and time-consuming formalities thanks to the New Computerised Transit-System (NCTS). The NCTS system eliminates the need to pay customs duties at border points and instead enables clients to declare at their desired destination.

The criteria for participating in the NCTS are stringent, but GFS meets all of these criteria and has the certified participant software and the technical expertise needed to assist our valued clients.
