You already know about Advantage Customs as an ATLAS-certified solution for efficient customs clearance processing. dbh has expanded this tried-and-tested software with a service function to make your customs clearance through German ports even more simple and convenient.

CONTAINER STATUS INFORMATION No more delays in your supply chain

Particularly on weekends, there are often delays where a vessel's cargo has already been unloaded, but due to the fact that the release of goods has not yet been granted by customs, it is not authorised for the goods to be transported any further.

The dbh convenience function Container Status Information (CSI) in Advantage Customs provides a solution for a smooth, and above all, quicker process in this area.

What new benefits does this function provide?

A goods declaration can be sent to ATLAS in advance for every import process.

With the Container Status Information function, these advance cargo notifications can be confirmed on ATLAS automatically as soon as the relevant container has been unloaded.

Connection to German port systems

This is possible thanks to the new Advantage Customs function, which features interfaces to the German port systems.

The software expansion automatically requests the container status via the relevant system (BIT and IMP) and forwards the received information on directly.

Advantage Customs supports you with your supply chain

The Container Status Information function enables the automated exchange of information between all parties involved to ensure more efficient handling of your import processes. You do not need to install any new software, the function is implemented directly in Advantage Customs.
