Keeping the information flowing

Smart, real-time information- it's what drives day-to-day trade through UK frontiers, and it's what Community Network Services (CNS) provides.

CNS provides services to the air and maritime logistics industries facilitating trade through EU frontiers. As a Customs approved Community System Provider (CSP) with direct connections to CHIEF and UK ICS, CNS's solutions provide processes that enable regulatory compliance, customs release and the efficient movement of cargo through the supply chain.
