Georgetown, CT / Tucson, AZ – Riege Software, Germany's leading vendor of innovative, digital logistics solutions announces its partnership with NetChb, the US market leader in Automated Brokerage Interface (ABI) software. The deal represents another country-specific collaboration for Riege’s freight forwarding software Scope, fulfilling on its product promise of being the unrivaled, comprehensive, single entry data system.

Customers using Scope to file importer security filings (ISF) can now leverage NetCHB’s advanced software solution and on-staff customs brokerage expertise to file entry summaries and cargo releases directly with US Customs. Data will flow seamlessly between the two platforms for the most accurate, complete, and timely compliance filings for in-bound ocean and air shipments. Mark Ketcham, VP Americas for Riege Software, is pleased with the new partnership, because of NetChb’s deep knowledge of entry procedures, admissibility requirements, rates of duty as well as applicable taxes and fees for commercial shipments, which is built into the market-dominant brokerage software.

“The partnership with NetChb allows the complete tracking of every shipment within Scope, without multiple log-ins across systems and other time-consuming loops, while removing all the stress and uncertainty around often complicated compliance and customs declarations for Scope customers,” says Ketcham.

Tom Groh, President of NetChb looks forward to the potential global opportunities that may develop, stating “Since the transition by US Customs to its Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system, NetCHB has become the industry standard in customs brokerage software. Working with Riege is the next step for us in deepening our understanding of the freight forwarding market and allowing over 450 Riege customers in 41 countries to experience the accuracy, efficiency, and ease of use that has made NetChb dominant in our category.”

Through the partnership, Scope once again proves its capabilities as one of the leading systems enabling unrestricted collaboration between participants in the supply chain whichever system they use.

In addition, Ketcham reports that the growth Riege has experienced in the US is fueling plans for further expansion in North America. “We were fortunate to experience strong double-digit growth in our user base in the last two years. Our forecasts are equally as robust.”

Consequently, Riege have added sales, customer service and technical support resources, maintaining offices in Georgetown, CT, Chicago, IL and Phoenix, AZ.
