Discount retailer

Overview

A major discount retailer required a cost-effective customs clearance service program that provided consistent pre-clearance performance with real-time visibility to their shipment status

Issue

The customer needed a high-end brokerage service at a low per container cost. The customer wanted five day pre-clearance on all ocean shipments along with real-time clearance event reporting

Obstacles

This customer had historically long standing relationships with its existing brokers and was reluctant to introduce a new service provider

Solution

We developed a highly automated clearance solution for the customer that met their cycle time and price expectations.  We worked with the customer to access commercial invoice information direct from them (via EDI) and to source EDI manifest details from their freight forwarder
