The Israeli all-cargo carrier C.A.L. has chosen Traxon’s Air Cargo Customs Europe solution to comply with European ICS requirements.
Frankfurt/Main February 2011. Traxon Europe, the international e-communications provider for the air cargo industry, has recently signed a contract with C.A.L. Cargo Air Lines. The airfreight carrier is using the new TRAXON Air Cargo Customs (ACC) Europe solution to comply with the EU Import Control System (ICS) which was scheduled to go live in all EU member states at the beginning of the year. The IT tool provides a simple and efficient service to meet EU Import Control System (ICS) requirements.
C.A.L. operates 7-8 flights per week between Tel Aviv and Liège as well as 3-4 flights per week between Liège and New York JFK. “The new European customs regulation led us to approach Traxon Europe as the leading solution provider in this field. Traxon Europe provides us with a single gateway to all customs organizations in the EU”, said Yaron Oren, CEO of C.A.L. “Our decision to work with Traxon Europe was based on the positive feedback we had received from its current clients and partners.”
“We are very proud that we were able to win C.A.L. as a customer for this new product”, said Carola Bodach, Senior Area Manager Sales of Traxon Europe. “We look forward to deepen our relationship in the years to come.”
The EU Import Control System (ICS) was scheduled to go live in all EU member states on January 1, 2011. Since then, pre-arrival information such as Entry Summary Declarations (ENS) for shipments into the European Union must be provided electronically and within a specified time. This applies to freight offloaded in the EU as well as to freight remaining on board (FROB) and carried on to airports outside the EU. If the required data is not provided, traders risks having goods delayed or their entry refused at the EU border once the grace period announced by some countries is over.
“Our TRAXON Air Cargo Customs (ACC) portfolio covers a wide variety of country specific solutions. All these products neither need massive investment nor extensive staff training. They are easy to maintain due to the single provider and gateway. They save time and money by automating many internal processes and reducing paperwork”, explains Carola Bodach.
