Dole Grows Global Trade Compliance Capabilities
Dole Ocean Cargo Express, a division of Dole Food Company, has selected Descartes' Global Filer to manage its import and export customs filings for the upcoming European Union (EU) regulations on advanced entry (ICS) and exit (ECS) summary declarations.
Global Filer is part of Descartes' Global Trade Compliance suite which offers a broad range of solutions that help prepare organizations around the world to meet current and long-term compliance mandates. Dole also expects the solution to help improve overall efficiency and visibility of Dole’s customs operations.
“Dole handles a substantial amount of import and export filings to and from Europe on a daily basis, so optimizing the quality and flow of information across the entire supply chain is a continuous effort and goal. Descartes’ Global Filer is a sophisticated application and the user-friendly dashboard reduces managing the complexity of EU customs processes to a minimum,” says John Trummel, vice president and general manager, at Dole Ocean Cargo Express.
Dole Ocean Cargo Express is already a customer using Descartes’ Ocean Compliance product, which leverages Descartes’ Global Logistics Network (GLN). Descartes’ GLN enables transportation providers to connect to their trading partners and regulatory organizations and reliably exchange information to increase performance and drive high levels of customer satisfaction.
