ITC-Diligence Inc., a California-based customs broker, foreign-trade zone operator and international trade consultant, is using Descartes Editrade Customs Link to help it manage its customs filing requirements. The hosted, on-demand brokerage management solution is designed to help customs brokers and importers collect and prepare data for Customs ABI (Automated Brokerage Interface) entries, as well as post-entry compliance.
Using this brokerage and customs solution, information can be captured in real-time and populated throughout various filing applications to speed processing and improve accuracy.
The solution is part of the Descartes Global Logistics Network (GLN), which helps companies manage their logistics book-to-bill process, track inventory, meet regulatory requirements, optimize fleet performance and communicate with their logistics partners.
According to David Harlow, president of ITC-Diligence, his company was “up and running in weeks” with the solution, which helped ensure ITC’s customers’ shipments kept moving.
