About a year ago we added GOC Rotterdam to the Customs Support family. Until recently they operated under the GOC name, but now that they have successfully integrated they will continue as Customs Support Safety as of January 1st, 2022.
The most obvious confined space you might think about when thinking about measuring gas is the shipping container.
We are proud to announce that Van Tienen Group and PX Safety are now Customs Support Safety. GOC Rotterdam is also part of Customs Support Safety.
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.
90 Percent of the world’s cargo is transported by shipping container. The number of containers keeps increasing. In 2019 the total throughput was 800 million TEU. TEU stands for Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit, the length of a standard shipping container. COVID caused a small dip in the increase for 2020, but the forecast for 2021 is 827 million and the total throughput is forecasted to rise to 924 million in 2024.
The Customs Support Group does much more than being a customs partner for companies that wish to export goods or import goods and participate in global trade.
