Offering a wide range of digital training on core customs and logistics topics
To support customers with the complexity of customs, A.P. Moller - Maersk has launched the Digital Customs Academy, a global e-learning platform for customs, logistics and international trade compliance. The platform has been developed in partnership between KGH Customs Services – A Maersk Company and UK Institute of Export and International Trade (IOE&IT).
 
We live in an increasingly complicated and complex world, where world trade is an important instrument for the global economy and recovery after the pandemic. When international supply and value chains become more integrated, the interaction with Customs and border agencies becomes essential from a compliance point of view.
 
To help customers interact with that complexity, Maersk Customs Services is launching this platform offering a wide range of digital training on core customs and logistics topics, delivered on-line in various languages. Its structure allows the learner to access modules relevant to their professional area of interest and level of development without the need to undertake a formal qualification.
 
This is a timely landmark step for customs knowledge, competence and capacity building in a moment when international trade experiences increased complications, complexity and disturbance. The first digital Customs Academy will be offered as a global Maersk Trade and Customs Consulting Product to its customers in all regions and it will also be used by its own professionals to further enhance the high standard of the Maersk Customs Services.
 
The new initiative is based on the successful experience of the UK Customs Academy, the worlds’ first digital customs academy, that has in recent years developed for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Over the last years it has delivered Brexit related online customs training to the UK trading community with many thousands of students that during the pandemic have finalised their customs education online for the benefit of trade and society

IOE&IT is a partner of Multimodal - and will be offering CPD courses on-site at the show - as well as hosting a member Pavilion. Maersk is exhibiting at Multimodal on stand 5050
