The solution for advance cargo declarations in the European Union.

Supported declarations:

  • Entry Summary Declarations and Exit Summary Declarations (ENS and EXS)
  • Diversion requests
  • Arrival notifications

ADVANTAGE PRE-DECLARATION Satisfy legal requirements

Since January 2011, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 648/2005 of the European Union, transport companies are required to submit an advance cargo declaration to the relevant customs office before bringing goods into the customs territory of the European Union. The purpose of this regulation is to create the opportunity to recognise risky goods deliveries more easily. The challenge in the implementation of this regulation was that all EU member states have their own interfaces, and therefore, in order to receive declarations, a total of 27 different software solutions are required for a wide range of different messages.

Uniform processing, user-friendly operation

Advantage Pre-Declaration uses interfaces to communicate with all 27 systems. This results in a user-friendly solution for shipping companies, airlines, truck companies, brokers/agents and freight forwarding companies for creating and sending pre-declarations (also referred to as "Entry Summary Declarations") in the required country-specific format.

Advantage Pre-Declaration in the field

Hamburg Süd is using Advantage Pre-Declaration all across Europe for entry and exit summary declarations.
