Don't forget that HMRC are upgrading their Custom Declaration platform, replacing the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system with Customs Declaration System (CDS).
The last date for Import Declarations through CHIEF will be September 30th, 2022.
The Unsworth team are underway supporting our customer's migration across to the CDS system by hosting workshops and webinars for our customer base, making sure you are prepped and ready to go before the deadline.
If this demo is of interest, please reach out to your Account Manager or the Custom Solutions Team to book a demo.

The port congestion in Europe is still a major issue that delays schedules, with more blank sailings announced by all carriers and alliances.

Just this week, we released our latest update for Pathway.
You have a whole new menu! Under account settings, you can now manage your own team, add or remove members and send password reset emails for anyone on your team.
As part of this release, we have upgraded the deliveries dashboard. This will let you see all deliveries and confirm or rebook a delivery easily right from the calendar (even for deliveries booked outside of Pathway).
We’ve also built a whole system of real-time configurable notification emails. Go ahead and customise your notification preferences as desired.
With this release, we think we've reached our MLP (minimum lovable product in my circles). It's the point that an app starts to seamlessly integrate itself into your day-to-day routine.
For many of you, this has already happened with Pathway and we couldn't be happier. If you’ve not had a chance to try out Pathway yet, sign up with the button below and start managing your freight online. It’s quick and easy, and it’s our way of being the best logistics partner possible.
Would you like to know more? You can set up a call with me and my development team here.

Dear Valued Customers,
As I write this message, following final stage talks between management and Unite union on Monday, 8th August, the 8 days of strikes at the port of Felixstowe have been confirmed as talks ended with neither party reaching an agreement on an improved pay offer and the union rejecting offers for continued talks at this stage.
As always, here at Unsworth, we will do our utmost to help our customers mitigate the impact of any potential delays and potential additional costs.
This summer has been a great opportunity for growth at Unsworth, we have welcomed three new staff members:
