As a customs broker handling customer shipments, you rely on information contained in documents from various parties in order to complete declaration filings.
Today, that critical information is on paper or in emails that may not have arrived when they’re needed, and often needs to be re-keyed to use. The process of getting the information is time consuming, while manual data-entry is inefficient and error-prone.
TradeLens digitizes the declaration workflow for all connected parties, so that you have the document information you need as soon as it’s available, and the ability to automate filings using the platform’s standardized data format.
Structured documents use rich data that can be reused to reduce keying errors and improve data quality.
TradeLens provides visibility of all of yourshipments’ events and flags document changes with a clear digital audit trail.
Authorized parties to any shipment can immediately see when changes have been made to shipping documents, and by whom, along a journey.
Shipment events are shared direct from the source, including document updates and planned, estimated and actual transport milestones.
