Freeports: truths, myths and misconceptions – post event resources
Courtesy of our hosts Womble, Bond Dickinson, we are pleased to share with PMG members the recording and slides from the event held on 13th July.
The session led by Craig Moore, Malcolm Dowden and Peter Snaith explored what the real opportunities are regarding Freeports, with a focus on Plymouth and South Devon Freezone.
We were also joined by Kevin McKenzie, Policy & Intelligence Advisor for Plymouth City Council and Stuart Elford, Chief Executive for Devon & Plymouth Chamber to help people to understand what the opportunities are whether you are within, adjacent or nowhere near a Freeport.

During the course of proceedings, Malcolm Dowden referred to the Electronic Consignment Note (eCMR). The eCMR protocol (https://www.iru.org/what-we-do/facilitating-trade-and-transit/e-cmr ) has been ratified by 28 countries including the UK in December 2019 and provides a legal framework and standards for the use of electronic means to record the CMR consignment note. The eCMR schema holds comprehensive data sets that can be integrated directly with HMRC Customs Declaration and Goods Vehicle Movement data sets, as well as with waybills across all other modes of transport to automate customs declaration submissions and compliance.
If you need to know more about eCMR and a Customs Gateway developed expressly for the purpose of managing declaration communications with HMRC please contact Jonathan Bowker, CEO & Founder, Innovative Integrations and efreight.uk
