Monday, August 31, 2015

Boomerang carnets® UK has successfully completed its first six months of operations with both merchandise values and carnet volume exceeding expectations. Almost 350 ATA Carnets were issued (348) with a total merchandise value slightly under £25 million. Over the six month period beginning March 1, 2015, ATA Carnet users included:

  • television broadcasters,
  • film production companies,
  • medical device manufacturers,
  • universities, and
  • industrial manufacturers, to name a few.

Carnet applicants have benefited from a variety of delivery services including same-day, overnight air courier and messenger pick-up at one of the three boomerang carnets® pickup locations: London, Heathrow, Liverpool. They have realized cost and time savings due to boomerang carnets® competitive pricing and all–online application process.

Jackie Dalgleish, Team Leader, boomerang carnets"There is an education process that we are undertaking with UK carnet applicants," commented Jackie Dalgleish, Team Leader, boomerang carnets®. "Typically, they are not accustomed to an all–online process, standard 24-hour turnaround and an overall less cumbersome method to getting a carnet. As our message gets out into the marketplace, we expect prospective users to understand that ATA Carnets have become simple and easy to apply for and use."
