Export Filing: PLDA

Automate your customs clearance in Belgium with Export Filing: PLDA

Belgium, with its port city of Antwerp, is an important export hub – even for companies based elsewhere. AEB's Export Filing: PLDA software uses smart templates, data transfers from host systems, and plausibility checks to streamline your export declarations in Belgium – for easier, faster customs clearance.

Functionalities for Belgian export declarations with PLDA

Your direct line to Belgian customs

Export Filing: PLDA software communicates directly with the Belgian PLDA e-customs system, helping you manage exports and re-exports in both the normal and simplified procedure. You can even generate the required T2L(F) declarations for shipments to special territories or through non-EU countries. Paperwork such as the export accompanying document (Uitvoergeleidedocument) or the endorsement of exit (bevestiging van uitgaan) can be easily printed out from the export transaction or automatically forwarded by email. Export Filing: PLDA is by your side all the way to customs clearance.

Your ticket to free trade and customs privileges

Use existing data to quickly generate movement certificates such as EUR. 1 and A.TR in the software. You can even download an XML file that can be imported directly into the “DigiChambers” application of the Belgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry to generate an electronic certificate of origin.

Container registration automatically included

Full container loads (FCL) shipped through the ports of Antwerp or Zeebrugge require a prior e-declaration with the port authority in the “C-point” port network. Export Filing: PLDA software automatically extracts and transmits the necessary data from the customs declaration – making your life and customs clearance that much simpler.

Frequently asked questions

How quickly can I get started with Export Filing: PLDA? 

You can get up and running with Export Filing: PLDA in very little time. You don’t need to take care of any preliminary formalities with the customs authorities. Do you want to integrate Export Filing: PLDA as a plug-in or interface into your IT system environment and processes? Or do you need training for your employees beforehand? If so, be sure to allow enough time.

How long does it take to integrate Export Filing: PLDA into our existing system? 

That depends on which ERP system you are using and the extent of the desired integration and automation. Depending on your particular circumstances, the software could be integrated into your processes within a few days. An AEB expert will also be happy to assist you.

What options does Export Filing: PLDA offer for integrating customs clearance into our systems and processes? 

Export Filing: PLDA can be addressed through an API (web service) and easily integrated by your own IT department or IT system vendor. That means it’s possible to link common systems such as SAP®, Microsoft Dynamics, IFS, Infor, or proAlpha.

Can Export Filing: PLDA be integrated into our existing SAP® system? 

Yes. Export Filing: PLDA can be easily integrated into SAP® ERP ECC6.0 and SAP® S4/HANA. AEB offers a plug-in for this. Integration into any other ERP or logistics system is also possible.

Is Export Filing: PLDA certified by Belgian customs?

Yes, Export Filing: PLDA has of course been certified.

What happens if the customs requirements change? 

As soon as changes from the customs authorities take effect, they are available in Export Filing: PLDA. The software is automatically updated to reflect the change. No further action is required on your part.

Are the port notifications a special requirement of Belgian customs?

No, Belgian customs has nothing to do with port notifications. The port notifications go to the port authorities in Antwerp and Zeebrugge, which use them to pre-schedule the unloading of containers. Pre-registration is obligatory, however. Export Filing: PLDA will handle the notifications for you if your carrier doesn’t already do so.

We’re already using Export Filing from AEB in one country. Is there any advantage to having our Belgian offices work with Export Filing as well?

It is particularly advantageous if you wish to centralize your customs processes or have already set up a central customs department. We have customers who run their customs clearance operations in Belgium but have their central customs department in Germany. Having a uniform software solution makes this collaboration smoother. You could even initiate Belgian customs declarations from another country. It’s also much more transparent for the experts if all the offices work with the same family of software. The IT department, including IT support, also benefits from the standardization.
