SGS Maco as your customs partner

We’ve chosen SGS Maco to be our customs partner as they offer us the possibility to automate customs declaration in the Netherlands by interfacing Forto’s system with the Maco Customs Connect software. At this point, we are in the process of automating clearance and communication with the harbour systems in Belgium and the Netherlands.

SGS Maco performance

Beside automation, compliance is a key aspect for Forto. Together with SGS Maco’s experts, we decide on the best customs procedure in view of our customers’ supply chain. Options include fiscal representation, standard importation or transit. Forto appreciates the proactive customer service from SGS Maco’s professional team. The combination of their customs knowledge and operational vision creates added value for our business.

Success formula

In the event of physical inspections or any other related service we can trust on a full service from one provider. Maco’s teams in Rotterdam and Antwerp coordinate all actions around the declaration of goods in the harbour. Forto currently uses SGS Maco’s fiscal representation and transit services.
