New web-site for PCDC 24/1/2019

Guided by the moto “less is more”, we adopted a simple but comprehensive typographic grid, a clear and straightforward hierarchical layout to reflect PCDC’s philosophy.

Our new website uses distinctive animations that make the navigation easy.

The structure of the site menu, the architecture and the content of the pages give users the opportunity to find the information they want about the services required and the strategic advantages of cooperating with the only logistics company located in the Free Zone of Piraeus Port


E – BTX 08/1/2019

As from 8 January 2019, BTX will not be printed-out but will be sent in electronic form from the PCDC Free Zone Department directly to the Customs Office.

Instead of the BTX form received today, as from January 8th, you will only get a unique BTX reference number with which you will trace the BTX at the Customs Office to complete the clearance process.

For Community goods, the acceptance of BTX by the customs will be sent electronically to PCDC and will be sufficient for the release of your goods – there will be no printed BTX document with signatures.

For non-Community goods at this stage, the procedure for delivering a customs license to the Free Zone Department will remain unchanged.

We will inform you in advance about any new changes.

Authorized Consignee / Sender Authorization 25/05/2018

In the years of our collaboration, you have identified our ongoing efforts to develop our services and regimes / licensing, in order to make it easier for our customers and us, to simplify your service processes.

Therefore, we have to inform you that we are now licensed as an Authorized Consignee and we are proceeding with simplification of T1 receipts for consignments arriving by road to PCDC for unloading or transit pass through.

This relieves us from the obligation to await the inspector to be present during the control check, until the T1 process is concluded, but only wait 1 hour after the arrival of the truck to update Icisnet, so that if the Customs seeks control to do so within this time limit.

We have also been licensed as an Authorized Consignor and we are proceeding with the simplification of the T1 issuance (from PCDC) for shipments leaving PCDC via road.
