Our Cargo Online Lodgement System (COLS) will be upgraded soon to use information from import declarations so you don't have to re-enter it in COLS. Consignments will be prioritised automatically and you'll be able to do a few more things in COLS. The upgrade date will be published soon in an industry notice.
If you are a customs broker or commercial importer, you can use the Cargo Online Lodgement System to:
- lodge documents for imported cargo online, instead of using email or visiting an office
- check the status of your lodgement in real time
- request a directions reissue
- access our services at a time and place that suits you
- receive consistent and priority based processing
- retain electronic records.
