Cargo Talks: "Customs, what's next?"


Customs, what's next?", is the question for many companies in our community today. Find out during our Cargo Talks what changes are on the way and what impact it could have on our operations. The development of a fully electronic customs system is one of the main targets of the European Union. This year's agenda of customs includes the implementation of ICS/2 and PN/TS, but also other digitalisation projects are on the radar.

During these Cargo Talks, Ivan Verborgh (Head of ICT at Belgium customs) will present the MASP (Multi-Annual Strategic Plan), followed by a panel discussion. For this discussion, Ivan will be joined by Mario Destoop (EFL Global), Paul Van den Bulck (Aviapartner), Michael Gomez (DHL Aviation) and Bjorn Bollingh (Crossroad Communications). Afterwards, a short networking moment is planned.

Free entrance - Registration requiered

Commemoration of March 22, 2016

The attack of March 22, 2016 has left deep wounds in the airport community. Brussels Airport organised a commemoration in the terminal and Memorial Garden, where flowers were laid in memory of the victims.

Conference room testing

Last Tuesday, a few representatives of the forwarders and handlers joined our IT-provider Nallian for a conference room testing for the new version of Truck Visit Management, the new DGL-application. Nallian provided a generic test environment with dummy suppliers and bookers and used different API calls via simulation to create and update digital rights for pick-up/import. These digital rights were created based on realistic data and scenarios, happy flows as well as non-happy flows. The goal of this testing was to validate the functionality and usability of the application and point to issues that may have been overlooked.

The session resulted in a positive and constructive testing workshop with lots of useful feedback to take into further development of the app. 

Below, you may find an overview of training courses that we offer in cooperation with Aviato Academy.
