support & training

International trade is a 24 x 7 x 365 business. Vessels and planes won’t wait for you if you can’t get all your paperwork done and all of your boxes ticked. And neither will your customers!

We appreciate that you expect your critical systems to be working hard all day, every day and not just from Monday to Friday, 9 to 5.

That’s why we deliver unrivalled technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We are focused on ensuring that our software support is always available to keep your Sequoia software functioning correctly and free of technical issues. Our technicians are trained and equipped to support any and all technical issues relating to the Sequoia software.

 Alternatively if your issue is a non-urgent matter please email and we will respond during normal business hours.


What do we mean by urgent technical support?


Our urgent technical support is where something is preventing the normal operation of the Sequoia software, i.e. it will not load or will not save information or communicate with CHIEF, NCTS or CSPs.

This support should only be requested if such a critical condition exists.


Please note that we cannot advise you on customs procedures, how to complete declarations and/or compliance issues. We also cannot help you if you’ve forgotten your password to access Sequoia.


The Sequoia Resource Centre


The Sequoia Resource Centre brings together all of the information you need to install, configure, operate, upgrade, and connect to the Sequoia Customs Clearance software.
