Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that InterPost, a long established wholesaler for international mail and the e-Commerce parcel industry, has improved the efficiency of its customs clearance service using the Descartes e-Customs(TM) solution.
"As a parcel operator, express delivery makes up a lot of our business and requires us to be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said John O'Brien, Consultant at InterPost. "With Descartes' cloud-based e-Customs solution, shipments can be cleared remotely during evenings, weekends and bank holidays. This saves time and is most efficient for our operations team, resulting in cost savings that can be passed on directly to our customers."
Descartes e-Customs is a secure, cloud-based solution that helps shippers and logistics service providers submit data anytime and anywhere to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the United Kingdom and other government agencies. The solution also provides additional modular customs management capabilities. InterPost also uses Descartes e-Customs Enhanced Temporary Storage Facility (ETSF) and New Computerised Transit System (NCTS) compliance modules.
"We're pleased to help InterPost improve operational performance and better serve its customers," said Pól Sweeney, Vice President of Sales and Business Management at Descartes UK. "Descartes e-Customs is designed to offer businesses of all sizes with international shipping requirements a customs compliance solution that is easy-to-use, scalable and always accessible."
