A Cabinet Office led pilot which aims to test new capabilities across supply chain security and technology that can provide greater assurance of goods crossing the border.

This pilot seeks to form consortia of ports, technology providers, freight organisations, public sector organisations and others who will collaborate and achieve the project’s aims and benefits, which could include:

  • For traders: less cost and delays to trading due to fewer checks at the border for trusted traders and access to faster routes (e.g. green lanes).
  • For ports: more efficient flow of trade through their ports, more predictability of trade.
  • For HMG: greater security through more data and better targeting of checks, more trade facilitated/wider economic benefits which in turn lead to greater revenue collection for government.

We hope that this pilot might be of interest to you and/or someone in your department.
