Customs4trade helps companies automate and manage customs formalities with CAS, its cloud-based duty management system, resulting in assured compliance, increased speed and control, and cost savings. CAS supports declarations in the UK, Belgium, and the Netherlands, as well as Special Procedures such as Inward Processing, Customs Warehousing and End Use. CAS can be fully integrated with SAP or other WMS or ERP systems.
Since January 2017, Agristo has implemented CAS at four different plants in Belgium and Netherlands. CAS integrates with Agristo’s SAP system to produce export declarations to customs and to communicate with Port Community Systems. Export shipments from the brand-new plant in Wielsbeke, in Belgium were added to the platform in November 2017, and in July 2018, import shipments were integrated to realise customs duty savings with the Inward Processing (IPR) module.
