Deringer Looks to the Future of Regulatory Compliance

Jul 30, 2013

CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwired - July 30, 2013) - A.N. Deringer, Inc., the largest, privately held Customs broker in the U.S. and industry leader in the realm of Customs compliance has entered into an agreement with Kewill, Ltd. to transition to Kewill Customs.

Kewill Customs, a next generation customs brokerage solution offers enhanced visibility, functionality, and robust ad hoc reporting capabilities to service both Deringer and its clients. "Partnering with Kewill for the past eight years has enabled Deringer to stay true to its vision of delivering exceptional customer service by meeting clients' current and future needs," stated Deringer Senior Vice President, Sandy Mayotte. "The platform's modern design is easy to use, resulting in less time training our logistics professionals to use the system, so that they can dedicate more of their time reviewing files and ensuring compliance for our valued customers."

As a pioneer in the world of trade regulations, Deringer has achieved many firsts in the industry and as a participant in the Simplified Entry pilot, wants to stay ahead of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) compliance curve by providing customers all of the functionality that ACE has to offer. "As the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) has adopted a more agile development process, Kewill Customs' flexible platform will enable Deringer to keep pace with the rapidly changing regulatory environment including enhancements to ACE, which is the future of CBP," commented Amy Magnus, Deringer's Director of Customs Affairs and Compliance. 

The Kewill Customs platform is also complemented by a powerful document imaging solution, which is elegant and will accommodate the rapid transmission of documents to CBP, as CBP begins to accept more and more information through ACE imaging (DIS). This will allow both CBP and participating government agencies increased visibility and may assist them in their decision making process so that they can release shipments more expeditiously, or satisfy their concerns with a document review in lieu of a costly physical exam.
