Transplace enhances customer portal for US-Mexico customs management

by Canadian Shipper

DALLAS, Tex.–Transplace has enhanced its customs portal to help shippers more efficiently and accurately manage the U.S.-Mexico customs process. The proprietary system automates and standardizes the interaction between shippers, importers and customs, improving communication, increasing visibility and reducing mistakes when transporting goods across the U.S.-Mexico border, Transplace said.

“Compliance with customs laws, rules and regulations is critical when transporting goods to and from Mexico, but it is often a complex, time-consuming process that can have a significant impact on the supply chain,” said Jose Minarro, ‎customs brokerage director for Transplace. “Using the Customs Portal, importers can interact with the shipper, broker, and multiple departments within their own organization through a single platform, enabling easier communication and visibility and ensuring the integrity of all data transmitted to Mexican Customs.”

The Customs Portal has multi-modal capability to clear air, ocean or land shipments through multiple ports of entry. The system comprehends inbound shipments at a Purchase Order (PO) or Advance Shipping Notice (ASN) level, automating the data input of each product line and eliminating the need for manual data entry. The system also features a centralized parts database for multi-port operations, allowing importers to add technical and use specifications for each part number.

The system’s Electronic Filing Record System stores Pedimento and related documents used for entry declaration for five years, which are available to customers in case of internal or external audits. The enhanced system also provides tactical and strategic operations and finance reporting, including shipments in process, cleared shipments, key performance indicators by mode of transportation, customs fees, brokerage charges, duties/taxes paid and more. All of the reports contain multiple filters that allow the user pinpointed access to specific shipment or part number details if needed.
