The certification approves DFDS to officially handle customs clearance services for all countries we offer customs services in.

By now, we are certified by the customs authorities of Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, and the UK. Soon, we expect to also be approved by France and by June by the remaining European countries.
