Gonzo going foremost to Gabon

Scope US AES sends used Mitsubishi Outlander to Africa successfully.

Gonzo going foremost to Gabon

October 23, 2014 / Tim Mitchell / About

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.
