Automated Customs Broker Interface – Air and Ocean Freight
We utilize the Descartes ‘EdiTrade’ advanced Automated Broker Interface (ABI) Solution to improve overall levels of compliance by enabling brokers and importers to easily and transparently collect and prepare data for Customs Automated Brokerage Interface (ABI) entries, as well as post-entry compliance.
Using this solution, information can be captured in real-time and populated throughout various filing applications to speed processing and improve accuracy.
As a cartage company this lets us interface with pre-populated paperwork to quickly complete freight clearance without error.  It also provides real-time visibility of the status of the freight in the system such that earlier delivery plans can be implemented.
