Managing your imports in-house only makes sense if it minimizes manual processes such as data entry. That’s why Import Filing includes a template functionality that lets you efficiently manage large numbers of recurring transactions. After the declaration data has been applied automatically from your host system, your employees will only have to add additional data in exceptions. Then, the declaration is transferred automatically to the customs authorities – after its plausibility has been validated.
