A simple way for export managers to speed the Certificate of Conformity process.

That’s the ethos behind XDS Solutions, and the reason the business was started back in 2013.

With over 12 years’ experience in Saudi Arabia SASO and Nigeria SONCAP compliance, we knew that export managers were frustrated.  Unable to find a straight-forward route to customs clearance.  Facing slow, complex, web-based conformity assessment programmes which failed to take into account their unique business requirements.

Often this meant unexpected charges, delayed shipments, or even company blacklisting at customs.

With us it’s personal.

We decided to turn the status quo on its head.  So, instead of web-based forms and faceless processes, at XDS we personally manage every step of your certificate of conformity process.

With additional support available, including product testing, Country of Origin certification and translation.

With a skilled team of expert account managers working to your deadlines, and tailoring a transparent compliance plan that fits your constantly changing needs.

We’re proud to work with export teams from a wide range of industries, from start-up businesses to blue-chip multinationals.  Delivering hassle-free exports into The Middle East and Africa for happy clients including Enersys, Hirsch, Bentley Europe and PZ Cussons.

Customer Testimonials

On all my dealings with XDS-Solutions, they have gone the extra mile and are now my first and only point of call. Due to bad past experiences we were rather hesitant in pursuing the African markets, XDS has now given us the confidence and support and I am proud to say that we have resumed exporting once again.

XDS has managed all our requirements for Certificates of conformity and we are very happy with the services they provide.

Adrian BirdLogistics Engineer, Newbreed Freight Limited

We had previously used another company, who had a longer turnaround, which didn’t always work out well for us. Our customers are happy that their SASO certificates are received sooner.

Our personal account manager is always at the other end of the phone. Ready to answer any questions.  Incredibly aware of our specific business challenges and up to date on the complex and ever changing compliance requirements of Nigerian customs.

Daniel BurtOperations Manager at WELL (Worldwide Energy Logistics)

XDS approached me a few times and suggested we switch. I was reluctant at first, but now I wish I’d done it much earlier. I am extremely happy with the service provided by XDS, it is excellent. That’s the reason we’re still with them

AEG Power Solutions XDS Solutions case study
Polar PaperGrace Thorogood, Director, Polar Paper

We did start to work with XDS as the procedures to get SASO or KUCAS seemed to be much easier than with other organisations in France. We found procedures elsewhere became constantly ever more complicated and slow.

BongardLaetitia Fontaine, International Sales assistant, Bongard

Back in late 2016 we were experiencing serious delays to our Saudi SASO certification process.  Since moving to XDS the SASO process across our USA, UK and German operations is streamlined, hassle free and SASO certification now arrives within a matter of days, not months.

Anne Coughlan - Logistics Lead, Quinta Raddison, Inc. USA

XDS Solutions provided my company with everything that was needed in order to ship to Saudi Arabia. This included a SASO certificate, a country of origin certificate and even translated our instructions to Arabic. Being able to go to one place made it so much easier to get all the right documents in the right place at the right time. XDS solutions were friendly, helpful and professional; I would recommend them to any export company.

Paul SimmonsExport Manager – Orluna

The whole experience of working with XDS Solutions has been positive. When we have an order for Saudi Arabia that we need assistance with I know now that it will be dealt with quickly and expertly. The account managers and the service from XDS is fantastic
