NCTS or New Computerised Transit System is the electronic transit procedure for the opening and closing of common and community transit procedures (T1, T2, T2F) for the authorised consignor/shipper and the authorised consignee. The processing of transit procedures is only permitted using data processing technology.
The NCTS provides an efficient service; there are no waiting times at customs offices because the registration of the principal is sent to the office of departure electronically. The transit procedures can be rapidly completed at the office of departure.
The messages about the presentation of the goods at the office of destination and about the termination of the procedure are sent to the office of departure electronically. The lodging of the guarantee can be immediately released without delay. The relatively high costs of the paper declaration are reduced and the process guarantees a high degree of transparency. For the authorised shipper, the electronic transit declaration has the advantage of eliminating the formalities required by the paper process.
The efficient system reduces processing times and improves communication and cooperation with other customs offices.
We have developed a certified software solution for the processing of the NCTS procedure which can be used both as a stand-alone solution and as a solution integrated into the FORMAT ATLAS software and which is fully certified for ATLAS imports and exports.
