Configure, maintain, and re-use organisational data

to automatically populate declarations 


Master Data Management increases accuracy and efficiency by maintaining a single source of basic business data across multiple systems, applications, and/or processes. Master Data represents all non-transactional data, including organisational structure, customs authorisations, item master data, and business partners. Once created, it can be re-used for each transaction across all CAS modules.

The CAS Master Data Module enables you to easily configure required declaration data that is typically not available in your ERP/WMS system. It then automatically populates it into declarations, limiting the amount of transactional data that needs to be sent to CAS. This speeds up your declarations process and ensures end-to-end compliance. On a daily basis, CAS checks item master data for validity of legal content, for example, commodity codes for different jurisdictions, avoiding errors due to missing or invalid tariff codes.

How it works

C4T’s CAS Master Data Module enables you to quickly and accurately facilitate your daily customs operations.

CAS Master Data allows you to easily set up your organisational structure, customs authorisations, item master data, and business partners once, then applies them across your customs activities. Organisational structure and customs authorisations are mandatory, while item master data and business partners are optional but could significantly accelerate your daily operations within CAS.

Organisational Structure

Enter your company’s organisational structure in terms of companies, plants, and storage locations as reflected in your ERP/WMS system. The correct setup of organisational structure is the backbone of every CAS implementation, as it drives the configurable business logic, user management, customs authorisations, customs flows, item master data, stock records, and communication between the source system and CAS.

Customs Authorisations

Set up customs authorisations based on the activities you perform. CAS allows for explicit management of customs authorisations linked to your company’s organisational structure, automatically applying simplified procedures, special procedures, and authorised locations to a customs declaration when appropriate. The customs authorisations stored in CAS are integrated with other modules, such as Declarations and Special Procedures, to optimise automation. CAS checks the authorisations that are required for a certain customs declaration and automatically adds these authorisations to the declaration when they have been set up and are valid.

Item Master Data

Transfer your information about items —item master data—from your ERP/WMS system directly to CAS, or enter it manually via our intuitive user interface. Only item master data that is required for customs and trade compliance is transferred from the source system, such as item number, description, item group, base unit of measure, alternative unit of measure, and gross/net weight. The item information is then used to automatically populate customs declarations lodged via CAS. Once set up, CAS will enable TARIC measures management and check the validity of your data on a daily basis, ensuring compliant, complete, and correct customs declarations. CAS can dynamically notify you of tariff measure updates so you can create rules and will also send status updates on validity of commodity codes back to your ERP/WMS system so all data remains uniform.

Business Partners

Transfer information about the partners involved in your customs procedures from your ERP/WMS system to CAS or set them up and maintain them manually. Business partners include the declarant, consignee, consignor, importer, exporter, carrier, and domestic duty tax party.
