Not all port locations have been set up on CDS, as we are currently unable to clear inventory linked at Birkenhead port. I believe border force/destin8 are aware of this issue but it is getting very close to the deadline and we may need to request an extension on CHIEF if this will not be done.

Hi, we are having similar problems. Which code are you using?

Currently the only location code I can see for Birkenhead is GBAUBRKLIVBRK. However this does not cover the berths we are situated at as we get an error trying to clear on CDS. At the minute we are still using CHIEF for Birkenhead however it is getting very close to 1ST OCT and if it is not sorted out soon we will not be able to clear anything...

We are using the CDS code that appear on the destin8 on the inq page with the UCN and add GBAU in front and this seems to solve the problem, but we are on different port.

I am being told that HMRC are doing another update this weekend regarding location codes so hopefully are situation will be resolved next week.

I have been informed by national frontier that the location code has still not been set up, therefore we had no choice but to request an extension on CHIEF.
