Langdon Systems originally developed a fully compliant online customs reporting solution, enabling SMEs to cost effectively generate electronic declarations via Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP). This provides SMEs with the option to use a straightforward data upload and simplified reporting process to achieve full compliance without the traditional staffing and infrastructure costs.

Now referred to as a cloud solution or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), we have been offering these pay-as-you-go solutions for over 10 years so you might say we were ahead of the game! Having run for this period of time and submitted over 5 million declarations, we know what we are doing in this space. We are immediately upgrading to CDS and fully expect this to be the first live CDS service in the UK.

Initially aimed at automating warehouse-keepers’ scheduling, it was expanded to cover the full range of customs regimes. The new solution will support Imports, OPR, IP, Warehouse and Exports, all accessible via a browser and at a manageable cost. For the more specialist industries, we also cater for excise goods including wines, beers, spirits and tobacco and common agricultural goods (CAP).

For 3rd & 4th party logistics operators looking to manage your clients’ customs reporting more cost effectively, e-CFSP has been further enhanced to include multi-client functionality enabling you to make declarations on behalf of yourselves and/or your clients.
