GORE-TEX & Precision Software act to meet new customs laws
Apr '09
Precision Software, a leading provider of supply chain execution software for importers, exporters, domestic shippers and transportation providers, and a division of QAD Inc, announced that W.L Gore & Associates has successfully deployed the PRECISION Global Trade Management solution, which includes certified integration to the electronic customs filing system of the German Federal Customs Administration known as ATLAS AES. The solution positions Gore ahead of the curve to meet mandatory German customs filing requirements that come into effect from July 1, 2009.

W.L Gore & Associates provides innovative ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) based solutions to a broad range of industries including electronics, industrial, medical and textiles. Best known for their revolutionary GORE-TEX fabric, the company has a complex global supply chain to support its diversified product portfolio.

The German export authorities mandate is the latest change to global customs regulations and requires all paper export declarations (SAD) be replaced by an electronic message. This small change has a significant impact on how global companies such as W.L Gore & Associates do business. By implementing the tightly integrated PRECISION global trade management solution that includes certified integration to ATLAS and workflow configuration to generate and print the required ATLAS ABD documentation, Gore can be confident that there will be seamless transmission of the necessary customs data as well as swift movement of shipments through German customs.

“PRECISION Global Trade Management is the perfect solution to automate the ATLAS automated export system (AES) process in our high-volume export shipping environment,” said Miguel Jimenez, W.L Gore associate. “With PRECISION's certified ATLAS integration, data integrity and shipment cycle times are just two of the areas that are positively impacted.”

W.L Gore & Associates chose the PRECISION solution because it offered both the multi-modal transportation and global trade management capabilities the company needed to support its world class global supply chain and diverse product portfolio. The solution is centrally located to manage shipping operations across its 45 sites around the world from a single database and is integrated with the company's existing enterprise software and warehouse management solutions. Gore now has the ability to streamline import and export transportation processes, seamlessly connect to global customs agencies, manage global shipping costs and provide enhanced service to its customers.

“As our customers expand their global operations, we are keenly focused on supporting them to improve their business processes and maintain compliance with changes in global trade regulations,” said Ed Boclair, President of Precision Software. “PRECISION Global Trade Management applies the latest certified customs integrations to manage the risks and stay competitive on a global scale.”
