Customs Support, the independent and dynamic partner for customs and gas safety matters in Europe, announces the acquisitions of GOC Rotterdam. Custom Support’s ambition is to be the leading digital customs broker in Europe with strong ancillary services. This acquisition will strengthen our safety and gas analysis services in The Netherlands.

GOC, located in Rotterdam - The Netherlands, is specialised in gas measurement and degassing in confined spaces. With a team of certified gas measurement experts, they currently measure around 30.000 containers annually and scan for more than 300 noxious gases. GOC is mainly active in the Port of Rotterdam area. GOC offers a unique drive-in measurement and degassing solution in the harbour of Rotterdam. Next to these services gas surveyors carry their work also out on other locations in The Netherlands. The way of working and approach, based on “working safely with gases in shipping containers” is highly in line with our other gas measurement businesses in Venlo and Groningen.

“In our ambition to be the leading customs partner for our clients we are very happy with this addition and welcome the gas analysis team to our Customs Support family. GOC has a great fit in serving our customers better in safety and risk management.”
