Reduced lead times and fresh fish to customers thanks to new customs solutions
Seaborn AS is a major distributor of Norwegian Salmon and Norwegian Fjord Trout, as well as Icelandic Salmon, providing Europe with fresh fish. Founded and owned by several Norwegian fish-farming companies located along the Norwegian coast, the producers have generations of farming experience and tradition. As a player in Norway’s seafood industry, which accounts for the nation’s third largest export volume after oil and gas, Seaborn has always been keen to meet customers’ demands by developing new business solutions. One new idea was to start transporting unsold fish and sell it during transport, in order to make better use of the lead time and thus deliver a fresher product to the consumer. To realise this, a new customs solution was developed which included both customs clearance and VAT services.
