Gonzo going foremost to Gabon

Scope US AES sends used Mitsubishi Outlander to Africa successfully.

A few days ago, implementation of the Scope US AES customs module was finalized for American Export Lines (AEL), an international freight forwarder, NVOCC and IATA/CNS agent, and their initial transmission to US Customs was completed. AEL implemented Scope in June of this year following extensive feasibility studies, customization, testing and training by Riege Software International who has previously undergone and completed rigorous testing and certification to become an official and approved AES service bureau for its customers using Scope.

Upon submitting the Letter of Intent (LOI) to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the interface was activated and export declarations were immediately transmitted to US Customs. The AES module performed as expected when initially handling this noteworthy maiden shipment: AEL’s very first entry was the declaration of a second-hand Mitsubishi Outlander going to Libreville, Gabon. After the tremendous effort of implementation, configuration, certifications and connection to US Customs, everyone involved was ready to go – American Export Lines, US Customs and, of course, the second-hand Mitsubishi Outlander. When the lucky new owner takes delivery of their fine used vehicle they will be quite unaware of the immense effort conducted behind the scenes. Nevertheless, the happy Outlander owner is one of many importers benefiting from current and prospective customers of Riege Software International who choose to use Scope for their forwarding.

In the end, it wasn’t gonzo at all. It was smooth sailing, and for AEL this was a consequential next step towards greater efficiency in handling customs export declarations. For us, this was another validation of Riege Software International’s skill, capabilities and dedication to provide forward thinking customized solutions for the freight and cargo handling industry which – in this case – is referred to as the Scope US AES module.
