Example of maximum automation
Customs4trade is one of (so far) two software suppliers to have truly fully automated Notification Local Clearance. In their approach, the first step that triggers a notification local clearance – the discharge confirmation from the terminal to Portbase – is also automatic. In view of the large volumes that enter the port and then have to go on to the warehouse, this represents a major added value for the importer in question. Otherwise, each incoming container would have still have required a manual action. In consultation with Portbase, Customs4trade has devised a smart solution for that.
Optimum visibility and time savings
The importer no longer has to worry about customs clearance in the port, saving it a lot of time and avoiding mistakes. Thanks to Customs4trade’s CAS software, integrating Notification Local Clearance and other Portbase services, the company can track the entire process right up to its warehouse. There is no longer any need to send e-mails and Excel files back and forth. The importer only has to act in case of exceptions. It can use the time freed up for its own core tasks with real added value.
