FAQs – Your most important questions.

How quickly is the software ready for use?

After receiving the order, we need about five days for deployment. Then you’ll be ready to go. In the  interface description we have summarized the most important information so that you can connect your ERP system.

What are the data import options?

Ready-made interfaces enable smooth integration into our system. Specifically, these are: 

  • Standard plug-in (e.g. SAP®)
  • REST/SOAP interface – bidirectional
  • File interface (Excel, CSV)

Can I add data automatically after data import?

The software completes incomplete data without your intervention. You have full control over the intelligent logics.

Can I also handle high value consignments with the software?

Yes, you can. The software can distinguish between high and low value based on the value and the allowed HS subheadings. It also detects when a parcel is not approved for low value procedures. If this is the case, the integrated wizard will guide you through the necessary steps of a high value declaration.

Can I combine consignments for the same consignee?

Yes, you can. Using various cumulation criteria, consignments for the same consignee can be combined.

Can I also map transit procedures with the software?

Our software supports all common import and transit procedures. This includes:

  • NCTS transfer
  • NCTS discharge
  • SumA (summary declaration)
  • Single customs declarations for free circulation
  • Single customs declarations for inward processing
  • Simplified procedure for free circulation
  • Simplified procedures (IPR/PCC)

The only requirement for use is that you have the necessary authorizations.

Can I create reports with the software?

Our software offers two different options for this: 

  • Standard procedure: You pull a data extract for analysis.
  • Jasper Reports and Analytics Tool: Simply order it to compile your own reports.

Does the software run in the cloud and is that secure?

Yes, operation in the cloud is secure – and offers multiple advantages: AEB runs your cloud software in its own ISO-27001-certified data center. The latest technology, an experienced team, sophisticated security architectures, redundant data backups, and tried-and-tested contingency plans ensure the security of your data. At the same time, you take the load off your IT department. For more information refer here.

Across borders. Simply extend your central system.

ATLAS IMPOST will be integrated into AEB's international customs platform. This creates a flexible system with which you can control electronic import declarations for one country – or for several countries at once. Both for low value and high value consignments. The platform supports you in distinguishing the procedures and seamlessly transmits your data to the relevant customs authority. 

You decide whether you want to take care of the declaration yourself or whether an AEB Trusted Customs Broker should do the work for you.
