Today I participated in World Trade Organization webinar on ’Trading Goods in the Digital Era: Improving Import, Export and Transit Procedures’.

The meeting gathered +290 WTO Member policy makers from all around the world.

In a panel, I presented what we in A.P. Moller – Maersk are doing on trade compliance, end-to-end digitalization & exchange of data with Governent agencies.

The panel was moderated in a perfect way by Roy Santana from WTO. I shared the panel with an excellent group of experts like Amy Morgan from Altana, Louise Wiggett from GTS & Sandra Fischer from DHL.

Great event, thank you to WTO for arranging this timely webinar.

Congratulations to Norway on 17 May, the national day and an official public holiday observed on 17 May each year.

Among Norwegians, the day is referred to as Syttende mai (“Seventeenth of May”) or Nasjonaldagen (“National Day”).

’Cracking the customs challenge’ – hat is what we do. Read the amazing story about our customer Pulpip here below.

And in the words of Zara Godfrey, Founder, Pukpip:

”Maersk supported us through the customs issues, making it a much quicker process than we could’ve managed by ourselves. They provided all the paper work, answered any questions from customs and were able to get our goods released quickly. Without Maersk we’d have been stuck in customs and had to pay significant charges. They’ve also taught us how to manage some of it ourselves, which is great and saves us money”.

Thanks to all colleagues involved.
