In principle, it is possible to import goods from third countries without any special formalities. However, in the case of exceptions, there are different procedural rules on customs clearance that importing companies have to deal with.
Optimizing import processes
A central question is the question of the right software: Which product not only meets the formal criteria for import processing, but can also be integrated into our IT environment? Or in a special case: How is efficient, fast and cost-effective import management achieved with SAP?
- Optimized import processes through complete processing of an import process via the SAP system
- Optimized import processes by automatically assigning ATB positions
- Fast induction of employees
- Consulting and implementation from a single source
- Optionally integrable classification
Imports with SAP
We offer a lean solution to companies that use SAP: the dbh Import plug-in. This is a software extension that can be easily integrated into your SAP system. It is the appropriate solution for mapping import methods. Optionally, you can also integrate an interface for classifying your goods.
SAP and Advantage Customs
If the import plug-in is integrated into your SAP system environment, you can map all processes from inbound delivery to posting and release in SAP. The Import Plug-In for SAP uses the functions of the dbh customs solution Advantage Customs. This software is certified for communication with the German customs system ATLAS. In addition, all of Europe’s common customs systems are connected to the system (e-dec, e-zoll and Sagitta).
Process customs declarations in full in SAP
Thanks to the import plug-in, the customs declaration can record all the data required for a correct and complete customs declaration in the electronic procedure. The data is validated in real time.
