TransitNet logistics

TransitNet is a faster, cheaper way to get your cargo to cross borders and pass through ports quickly and efficiently. We understand the complexities involved with transporting cargo by road, rail, and water and kept this in mind when we designed TransitNet.

You don’t require any authorizations, there’s no need for a deposit, and you don’t need to search for a local partner in the countries in which you operate.

TransitNet Platform

TransitNet is a secure, multilingual internet platform in which transit documents are created, checked, and monitored in order to significantly reduce your transit times. TransitNet allows the transport and logistics industry to electronically submit transit declarations to customs, along with a financial guarantee that covers liability for tax obligations.

Customs Guarantees and Software

TransitNet clients do not need to own their own customs guarantees; which can be extremely expensive to maintain. All transit declarations created via TransitNet are submitted using SGS's own customs guarantees in accordance with Customs Territory Regulation. This removes any additional financial burden on companies who use our service. Also, did you know that the guarantee needed for each shipment can be up to and in excess of 28% of the total value of the goods being transported?

Multinational Coverage

SGS TransitNet not only enables you to perform Transit and Export Declarations from UK. Clients can also submit Transit Declarations from 23 other NCTS countries which covers return journeys via the UK to Ireland/EU. TransitNet also allows users to submit complete customs documents for trucks travelling from UK to 40 destinations including Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Moldova.

Benefits of TransitNet

  • Speed: faster and cheaper than other transit services for road transport.
  • Accessibility: a better electronic alternative for existing paper-based systems and available within and outside the UK/EU.
  • Reliable: individual carriers do not need to file transit guarantees in favour of SGS or customs authorities.
  • Facilitation: information provided to customs in advance and compliant with UK/EU NCTS and Turkish requirements, speeding up border passage and ensuring rapid release for transit movements.
  • Traceability: all participants have real-time insight into the status of transit movements online.
  • Savings: this is an online system. The only IT infrastructure needed to run this system is access to the internet.
