DHL inks deal with Abu Dhabi Customs

DHL Express and Abu Dhabi Customs have signed an agreement to launch the first Electronic Data Interface system for the logistics sector in Abu Dhabi which will be aimed at ensuring faster clearance of goods imported into the capital city. The new 'Gold Card' programme will allow DHL customers to lodge and complete customs declaration processes prior to the arrival of their goods. Customers will be able to send their shipment information electronically and receive customs clearance confirmation within a few hours, with shipments cleared in the air before landing in Abu Dhabi.
