International customs regulations are at the heart of Global Supply Chain Management

Didier Le Gras was trained by the customs authorities via a partnership with the private sector.

After about 20 years as customs agent in France's biggest port, Le Havre, he became manager of a customs department handling import/export for a wide range of products: Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), petrol products, industrial machines and equipment, chemical products, textile materials and products, and other goods.

At ACTE International, Didier Le Gras has developed an operational customs department for Local Clearance Procedures (LCP), and he managed Full Authorized Economic Operator certification programs as early as 2009.

Armed with this experience and the confidence invested in him by the administration, his audit and consulting assignments have helped ACTE clients obtain key accreditations and certification to optimize their customs costs and secure their international supply chain.

A recognized customs expert for several organizations, Didier Le Gras can explain the most complex customs regulations in a practical context.

Didier Le Gras is a key link in the relation between companies and the customs authorities, able to maintain and respect both parties' interests.
