Broker Integration: 
The direct line to your customs brokers. Worldwide.

Many enterprises simply could not conduct their international business without the help of customs brokers. In many countries, customs brokers are an essential element in the customs clearance process. Broker Integration digitizes the collaboration with your brokers, saves costs, provides legal safeguards – and above all, accelerates the entire process.

Send customs instructions via data upload

Today, instructions for customs declarations typically go out to your customs broker by email with file attachments. This data must then be re-entered into the broker’s system on the other end – a cumbersome and error-prone process. 
But customs processing can also be digitized. With Broker Integration, all the data is transmitted together to your customs broker and appears in the broker’s system without any interruption in the digital data flow. The end result is a seamless process with fewer steps, resulting in fewer errors and the transparency everyone has been waiting for.

When will my customs declaration be ready? When was it passed to the relevant customs authorities? When will my goods be released? These and other questions can be answered by the status updates shared by your customs broker with Broker Integration. One more way to eliminate manual input and potential sources of errors. Finally, you’ll always have the information you need!

EADs, tax notices, and more – all accessible in one place

Broker Integration is not a one-way street: Your customs broker shares export accompanying documents, tax notices, and other critical documents with you, linked directly to the transaction. It’s all right there in your customs system, ready to use in all downstream processes.

Non-automated data transmission – especially data entry – is a source of unnecessary costs for your customs broker as well. Many brokers offers significant price discounts if they can access data in their own IT environments without any manual prep. So Broker Integration gives you a leg up in price negotiations with your brokers.

Easy monitoring of brokers’ quality of service

Very frequently, foreign customs processes take place between customs brokers and your local branch office employees, who are not customs experts. This can become a critical issue, because even when a customs broker files a customs declaration, the company as the declarant still remains liable. The added transparency from Broker Integration provides quality assurance in your global customs processes. And you can breathe easy during internal and external audits.

        Questions?

        Do we need to set up a separate interface for each broker?

        No, that’s not necessary. Broker Integration provides a single, standardized interface to all available customs brokers. Simply transfer the data for all brokers from your ERP system to Broker Integration. The AEB software then generate a standardized interface file for each transaction and shares it with your broker.

        How can I check the progress of a customs declaration?

        Broker Integration lets you see the progress of any customs declaration. Once a customs broker accesses the data needed to submit a customs declaration, the broker enters the declaration’s status in a separate web app and uploads the required documents received from customs for the transaction. This status is displayed directly in Broker Integration, so you always know where things stand with your customs declaration.

        Broker Integration lets you use all pre-defined customs brokers. And it’s also possible to link the customs brokers that you’re already using to Broker Integration.

        How does using Broker Integration help my broker?

        The greatest benefit to brokers is that they no longer need to enter your data manually into their customs systems. This makes the entire process digital and thereby more efficient. Broker Integration lets brokers receive the necessary files directly into their own customs systems or simply import them.
