Odfjell Chooses Descartes for European Customs Security Filings
Global filer is part of Descartes' global trade compliance suite which offers a broad range of solutions that help prepare organizations to meet current and long-term compliance mandates. Global filer enables collaboration between multiple parties to address customs security filing requirements across different modes of transport and for multiple EU countries.
Odfjell Tankers, a commercial operator of chemical tankers, selected Descartes' global filer to support compliance with European safety and security regulations in 22 EU member states and to centrally manage customs operations from its European logistics hub in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Descartes' global filer leverages the power of Descartes' global logistics network (GLN). The GLN enables global organizations to connect to their trading partners and regulatory organizations and reliably exchange information to increase performance and drive high levels of customer satisfaction.
Cindy Yamamoto, senior vice president of trade compliance at Descartes, said: â€œDeveloping supply chain business applications and keeping them real-time with the complexities of new standards and protocols in EU member states is a continuous process.
â€œDescartes' Global Filer solution addresses these fast evolving and sophisticated requirements to assist companies such as Odfjell Tankers AS in optimizing its customs operations and complying with EU regulations.â€
Peder Arnesen, project manager at Odfjell Tankers, said: â€œWe selected Descartes because they are one of the leaders in the global trade compliance industry. Descartes impressed us with its in-depth understanding of our business and the complexity of the EU customs environment.â€
Will the selection benefit Odfjell?
