Descartes Systems Group which provides logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, has played a vital role in the running of EOS’s business operations.
Last year, Eagle Overseas, (EOS), announced the launch of its customs clearance service, an initiative that provides a seamless import and export experience for new and existing customers.
As a key part of this service, Descartes’ e-Customs resolution has helped them cope with a vast increase in customs entries and customs warehousing.
Carol Norval, Director, EOS Customs, comments: “Brexit has presented so much uncertainty across the supply chain and logistics industry, but we were able to prepare ahead of time having implemented Descartes’ e-Customs two years ago.
“The ability to add modules to the system has undoubtedly given us a competitive advantage specifically around preparing for Brexit. The Northern Ireland (NI) Protocol from the UK government requires Great Britain-Northern Ireland imports to use HMRC’s new Customs Declaration Service (CDS).”
Pol Sweeney, VP Sales and Business Manager UK for Descartes added: “We’re delighted to be working with Eagle Overseas. Many of its customers now require new customs processes as a result of Brexit, and EOS is well prepared to complete the required declarations to allow traders to move goods into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from Great Britain as well as continue with international movements.”
