By attached letter (in Dutch), customs want to draw your attention on ECS/2 for:
  1. Return shipments from GHA to agent
  2. Receiving ‘Confirmation Handling’ messages via e-mail
  1. Return shipments from GHA to agent
In a communication at the beginning of 2022, customs and ACB already informed you about the way Transfers from GHAs to agents in case shipments need to return, should be handled. 

Customs wants to remind you on the way of working.
If a Transfer is being sent from a GHA to an agent, agents should be able to accept the Transfer by a Confirmation Handling message.
Only then, the goods are back under the responsibility of the agent and it will become possible to move on with the goods.
Technical specifications of this message are available here: Actueel | FOD Financiën (
  1. Receiving ‘Confirmation Handling’ messages via e-mail
Agents that want to get a copy of the Confirmation Handling (the follow-up message GHAs are sending to customs as an acceptance of the Transfer), are offering this possibility via e-mail.
To receive a copy of these messages, agents should deliver an e-mail address together with the company name and EORI-number to before 28/02/2023.
Be aware that the e-mail addresses will be uploaded in bulk in PLDA, there will not be offered the possibility to upload an additional e-mail address after 28/02/2023.
In case of questions, do not hesitate to contact Klara Pasgang:

Air Cargo Belgium represented @ the FENIX final event

Over the last few days, Air Cargo Belgium was glad to represent its Belgian Pilot project for the FENIX final event at the P&G InQbet Campus in Grimbergen.

FENIX is a flagship project of the European “Connecting Europe Facility” goals through interoperability and standardization of data sharing tools. FENIX responded to the constraints of the current global supply chains through enhanced and standardised data sharing instruments.

With Air Cargo Belgium’s community driven goal to connect logistics, we were glad to contribute to this project!

Register for the BRUcargo jobfair

On March 9, 2023 Air Cargo Belgium and Aviato will join forces to organize a special edition Job fair, for BRUcargo only. This will be a restricted job fair, with a few preselected potential candidates based on the available vacancies within the community. Please keep in mind that candidates might not yet have experience in airfreight administration.
The job fair will take place from 14h00 until 17h00 in Building 54 (Ringlaan 68, 1831 Machelen). Under the form of a ‘speed dating’ principle, the companies present will be given a table and the potential candidates will join one by one. We have in mind to welcome an average of 10-12 companies. Aviato screens the candidates beforehand and organizes the matching.

To qualify, companies must:
  • Have at least one open vacancy, published on the Aviato-website
  • Take into account that we will most likely have candidates without experience at BRUcargo or air freight in general
Are you interested in taking part? Register below, and we will contact you. We will work under the motto "first come, first served", so the first companies signed up will be given priority.
