Europa Worldwide Group has recently teamed up with Lieven Hendrickx, the new head of its customs team.
Lieven Hendrickx, originally from Belgium, has over 30 years of experience in the logistics industry. He has worked across Europe as well as in the Middle East. His most recent collaboration was with the international business consultancy Deloitte.
Mr Hendrickx will be based in Oostende, and his team of 15 people will be working in the UK, France and Belgium.
As the transition period ends on 1st of January 2021, the Frictionless Trade Services (FTS), Europa's new customs project, has been created to help with the customs process, including export and import declarations.
Lieven Hendrickx declared: “I’m delighted to be joining Europa to lead the customs team ensuring we provide effective clearance support for our customers. Andrew leads a dynamic team at Europa and it’s great to be a part of that team as we continue through to create a clear path for our customers and partners.”
The Managing Director of Europa Worldwide Group, Andrew Baxter, said: “The Brexit transition period is quickly coming to an end. Soon all goods travelling between the UK and the EU will need to go through a customs process. Whilst some areas are still unclear, we must all ensure we prepared. Creating our own team, headed up by a skilled operator such as Lieven means that both Europa and our customers will be in the strongest position on 1 January 2021.”
