Customs Declaration Software - Just Trade

Just Trade is a state-of-the-art online platform for making import declarations, preparing export documentation, and checking the requirements for shipping to destinations around the world. The Declarations module makes import customs declarations to the United Kingdom Government’s Customs Declaration Service (CDS).


CDS supports the UK’s trade with the rest of the world and the EU. CDS is the latest reporting system used to process declarations for goods entering and leaving the UK. It went live in 2018 to replace the ageing Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) service.
