Interim  Management

“best practice solutions” for your Trade Compliance Organization

One of the lessons learned from practical experience in dealing with the UCC and the associated “reassessment” of the simplifications and authorisations granted to businesses is that compliance management or an adequate customs organisation has now become mandatory  to use customs simplifications.

Customs experts and trade compliance managers are currently in great demand and are only available on the labour market to a limited extent. The practical challenge for many companies is the lack of expertise and time resources for the establishment, monitoring and implementation of trade compliance regulations.

At the same time, the more demanding customs regulations, which have been in force since 2016, as well as the permanent changes in the law, increase the requirements and complexity of foreign trade and thus of your foreign trade organization.

Do you also suffer from personnel bottlenecks in the area of your customs and trade compliance organisation / processing?

You cannot find a temporary and/or permanent expert replacement?

Due to this shortage of experts, but also due to the loss of your own regular staff due to retirement, illness, job changes, parental leave substitution, there is an increasing lack of experts, especially in the areas of customs / foreign trade / compliance / logistics.

Fast, uncomplicated and above all reliable solutions are required!

For your daily challenges (temporary or permanent personnel/specialist vacancies in the foreign trade organisation and processing) we offer you our tried and tested interim management.



Our service – your flexibility!
