To comply with the new rules for imports—called 10+2 for the number of data elements required—companies are already adapting. Gaining increased supply chain visibility is a benefit of the process.

A number of suppliers of solutions stand ready to provide insight and assistance in helping meet the new requirements. For example, Kewill (www.kewill.com) offers among other aids, a whitepaper, Customs Brokers at the Helm of 10+2, which provides an overall perspective on the ruling as well as discussing the provider’s solution.

Creating its import and customs brokerage software is Celeste Catano, Kewill’s Principal Business Analyst. A licensed Customs Broker, Catano is the Trade Co-Chair of the Trade Support Network Transition Committee and a member of its Entry Committee.

Kewill has created a web site, Kewill ISF (Importer Security Filing) to function as a collaborative and integrated solution for 10+2. The site provides visibility into ISFs in process and ensures compliance to minimize delays, avoid fines and penalties

LOG-NET (www.LOG-NET.com) has had its Importer Security Filing Option available for several months. “We have been testing this capability and our clients and other early adopters preparing for this regulation are seeing the potential for two to five additional days of inventory in their supply chains, says John Motley, the company’s president and CEO. We want to help them avoid this by implementing seamless electronic solutions over the web.”

A global on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics service provider, Descartes Systems Group (www.descartes.com) provides its Importer Security Filing service to address the 10+2 requirements. It is offered in a variety of delivery options to match varying needs of its customers: Descartes ISF, Descartes ISF-Connect and Descartes ISF-Premier.

A partnership between CEVA Logistics (www.cevalogistics.com) and Integration Point, Inc. (www.IntegrationPoint.com) results in an offering of a comprehensive, on-demand workflow solution for ISF for CEVA Logistics customers. The offering incorporates Integration Point’s Advanced Trade Solution.

Not only does the tool enable capture of all data elements required from an ISF, it also manages the workflow for validating and submitting the data to Customs & Border Protection. Other benefits include the ability to follow shipment events and multi-lingual capabilities for users, among others.
