Gravitas Worldwide Streamlines Customs Clearance Using Descartes e-Customs™ Solution

LONDON and ATLANTA, April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that global freight broker Gravitas Worldwide is more efficiently managing customs declarations for aerospace clients by using Descartes e-Customs™ to automate traditionally manual customs processes.

“We ship anything from aircraft engines to rivets for our clients. Since many shipments take place overnight, it is critical that we can manage and execute our own customs entries,” said Stuart Pople, Operations Director – Time Critical and Aerospace, Gravitas Worldwide. “Without Descartes e-Customs, we would have had to hire three or four people to support our monthly shipment volumes. Using the solution, we now manage customs declarations within minutes, not hours, which means our existing team gains significant productive time to focus on providing more strategic insights and value to clients.”

Descartes e-Customs is a secure, web-based solution that helps filers submit data to HMRC and other government agencies through a concise, easy-to-use interface. From template-driven declarations, client-specific data and the ability to duplicate previous declarations, Descartes e-Customs can adapt to the multiple ways that companies operate. To support the needs of both small and large operations, the solution can be integrated with freight management software as well as enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, which allows companies to manage inbound and outbound declarations from within one advanced solution.

“We’re delighted our solution is supporting Gravitas’ growing U.K. operations without requiring additional resources to comply with customs regulations and procedures,” said Lars Persson, VP Sales, Customs EMEA at Descartes. “For traders, customs brokers and forwarders who move goods across borders, keeping step with changing regulations is a primary challenge. Descartes’ robust solutions help companies of all sizes facilitate compliance at enhanced levels of productivity and accuracy, which streamlines cross-border trade for all parties involved.”
