Mazda Motor Logistics Europe Automates Customs Declaration Process

Mazda Motor Logistics Europe N.V., the Belgian-based operation of Mazda Motors, is using Descartes' cloud-based customs solution to automate declaration filings in Belgium.

"Customs regulatory changes, such as the introduction of Paperless Douane en Accijnzen (PLDA), are making the declaration filing process more complex," said Nico Lejon, manager of European Financial Services at Mazda. "Descartes' cloud-based solution is critical to our business performance as we operate with tight plans and very strict time-lines. With Descartes, we were able to improve operations by eliminating manual processes and increasing the accuracy of declarations, as such reflecting the quality aspect of our Mazda products in our processes while keeping our supply chain moving."

Descartes' cloud-based customs solution for the EU provides efficient and accurate customs declarations filing and clearance in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The solution provides modular capabilities including import, export and transit management; excise management; combined declarations; emergency procedures; customs warehouse management; and more. Customers also benefit from its user-friendly design and rapid implementation.
