expects AT to take immediate measures to overcome these problems, in order to
mitigate the legitimate discontent of the brokers and their difficulties in the
relationship with customers".
to accept "that customs continue to be the poor relative of AT", the
Order of Official Dispatchers defends that it is "urgent that the
authorities take concrete measures to guarantee that the problems are solved in
an efficient and effective way for the proper functioning of customs".
that since the beginning of January "it has been following with concern
the constraints faced by its associates in the customs treasuries", ODO
points out that "dozens of complaints have been filed, reporting delays
and unjustified losses for operators and their customers".
in the statement, the chairman of ODO, Mário Jorge, refers that "contacts
with the AT have taken place regularly but, despite some constraints having
been resolved, there are still serious problems that need to be resolved as soon
have already expressed our concern to the director of AT. We have also alerted
the Government, through the Secretary of State for Tax Affairs, to the
seriousness of the situation".
