Freightgate software compliant with new '10+2' regulations

Freightgate has released Importer Security Filing software that allows apparel and textile importers to be compliant with the new 10+2 regulations and avoid costly penalties. Effective January 26, 2009 apparel and textile importers are required to submit Importer Security Filings to U.S. Customs and Border Protection at least 24 hours prior to ocean vessel loading at the foreign port of origin.

Freightgate, a leading integrated SaaS software provider for supply chain logistics, has been working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to develop Importer Security Filing software known as Compliance-Trek!

According to the International Trade Administration, over $9 billion dollars of apparel and textile imports arrived into the U.S. economy last year. With the economic crisis already hurting apparel and textile imports, the new Importer Security Filing adds more burden and costs.

“New regulatory compliance adds more cost to both the clothing importer and retail store customers”, says Nick Matyas, Freightgate Vice President Strategic Initiatives. Matyas continues “Compliance-Trek! software allows apparel and textile importers to maintain regulatory compliance collaboration with their global manufacturers, suppliers and supply chain partners.”

Compliance-Trek! software reduces supply chain administrative costs and improves supply chain processes and logistics control. The SaaS software can be easily integrated into your other systems. Compliance-Trek! is embedded with RDV (Role Dependent View) technology.

Compliance-Trek! SaaS software offers four immediate benefits that makes it very attractive in these economic times: 1) Quick to Implement; 2) Pay-As-You-Go Variable Cost; 3) Easily expanded or upgraded on demand; and 4) No Capital Expense.

Matyas continues “In addition to Importer Security Filing compliance, Freightgate can assist apparel and textile importers with Global Tender Management to secure competitive pricing from air and ocean carriers. Freightgate's innovative supply chain management SaaS software helps apparel and textile importers maintain profit margins. The software enhances collaboration and visibility into the apparel and textile logistics management lifecycle.”

Apparel and textile importers can receive a software demo of Compliance-Trek! and learn more about apparel and textile supply chain management, contact Freightgate on the web at www.freightgate.com, email sales@freightgate.com or call (714) 799-2833.
