InterPost now using Descartes e-Customs solution
InterPost, a UK-based wholesaler for international mail and the e-Commerce parcel industry, is now using the Descartes e-Customs solution to improve the efficiency of its customs clearance service. “As a parcel operator, express delivery makes up a lot of our business and requires us to be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said John O’Brien, Consultant at InterPost. “With Descartes’ cloud-based e-Customs solution, shipments can be cleared remotely during evenings, weekends and bank holidays. This saves time and is most efficient for our operations team, resulting in cost savings that can be passed on directly to our customers.”
Descartes e-Customs is a cloud-based solution that helps shippers and logistics service providers submit data to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the United Kingdom and other government agencies. The solution also provides additional modular customs management capabilities.
In a statement issued today (15 June), Descartes said that InterPost also uses Descartes e-Customs Enhanced Temporary Storage Facility (ETSF) and New Computerised Transit System (NCTS) compliance modules.
