Formed in 1993, the AFSS brings together and represents many of the leading suppliers of software to the freight and transportation industry. Major developments over the next few years in EU Customs procedures, and a greater emphasis on security issues will have a big impact on software development. AFSS represents members on the main HMRC Joint Customs Consultative Committee (JCCC) and also plays an active role in various working groups.
AFSS has regular contact with all the CSP’s i.e. MCP, CNS, CCS-UK, DHB and Pentant, and also with BIFA (British International Freight Association) and UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association). They also link with BIS who have taken over some of the aspects of SITPRO since its demise. Finally, we have links into EU trade groups in Brussels.
