FCS LAUNCHES EXPORTVIEW WITH C.H. ROBINSON
C.H. Robinson has started to use a Web-based service developed by Flagship Customs Services to allow its export clients to view online their shipper’s export declaration filed with U.S. Customs.
ExportView gives shippers access to FCS’ Export2000 Service to view and print SEDs submitted by the filer on their behalf. Thus, the shipper is able to gain “instant access” at any time to its SED data filed and accepted by Customs.
“We have many calls from freight forwarders and logistics companies asking how they can keep their exporters informed about their SEDs without tying up their staff,” said Robert Foley, president of FCS, based in Silver Spring, Md. “ExporterView is an ideal solution to this issue. With the permission of the filer the shipper gets access to the SED and the Customs response directly, avoiding delay and possible misinformation created by other methods.”
FCS expects many of its Export2000 clients to use ExporterView.
