The Customs Formalities Assistance service in our 300-space “Calais Truck Stop” car park, located in Transmarck (Marck-en-Calaisis), is open 7 days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. This recent parking location with almost direct access to the A16 motorway offers many advantages to truck drivers. They can benefit from a catering point, free unlimited wifi access, a rest room and of course toilets.
Our great availability allows us to operate on a regular basis by welcoming and supporting truck drivers in their customs procedures.
ASA offers solutions for managing formalities on behalf of other freight forwarders from its Approved Location (IST) in the “Calais Truckstop” car park. Our service allows freight forwarders who do not have the possibility of a physical presence to be represented by an approved professional.
On this car park, we welcome drivers from and to England by meeting their customs needs. We play a direct linking role between road drivers and their RDE. We ensure the closing of T1/T2 transit titles or transit titles to Calais Principal FR000740, the creation of transit titles and regular support for our RDEs who transit their goods. Our new work tools, in particular our web platform, allow us to be reactive and methodical in the face of our customers' requests. It informs us in real time of the progress of the declaration as well as the situation of the goods (photograph of the goods if necessary, posting of transport documents, etc.). Digital tools are innovative means that are revolutionizing our business. They also allow truck drivers to follow the progress of customs operations live from their mobile phones by accessing a page generated by a QR code. This access is given to them during their presentations on our premises. The operations are also visible on a screen present in our premises.
✅ In addition, our presence on the CTS site reinforces our proximity to customers since we are able to check the presence of drivers in real time and thus ensure optimal monitoring of your exchanges.
Freight forwarders are thus certain of the presence of a truck in a place at a given time and are able to guarantee to customs compliance with customs procedures and formalities, in full compliance. Thanks to our platform, freight forwarders are therefore assured of the smooth running of the procedure and compliance with customs formalities.
The Customs Formalities Assistance service provides complete assistance on behalf of third parties regarding requests for customs documents.
This assistance implies knowledge of the client portfolio of our principals. In order to avoid any short-circuiting by these companies vis-à-vis our clients, we maintain a relationship of trust and transparency with our partners. We also work with the Customs department, which carries out on its own account the customs declarations requested by their own customers.
The Calais TruckStop site has almost direct access to the A16 motorway but also benefits from a strategic geographical location thanks to its proximity to the Port of Calais and therefore to the health / veterinary service.
This team is made up of Mr. Gino Tomassi – Customs and Transit Manager, Mrs. Mathilde Blondel – Transit Supervisor as well as Mrs. Daisy François and Mr. Patrick Dufossé – Transit Agents.
