Do away with time-consuming manual import processes. E2open Import Management automates essential import operations, empowering importers to collect all the required information on a single platform, collaborate seamlessly with supply chain partners, establish complete compliance, and clear borders quickly.

Faster border clearance, more efficient compliance

Manual processes can slow you down

Border clearance takes a lot of paperwork and moving parts

Inaccurate paperwork, poor coordination between partners, and constantly changing rules are just a few challenges of importing. It’s a complex process that can lead to higher costs and unhappy customers when performed manually. Importers must collaborate with partners to make sure complete and accurate information accompanies inbound shipments. Missing import clearance data leads to customs delays, which increase detention and demurrage costs and can make on-time deliveries impossible. Companies must also comply with import regulations to avoid violations, penalties, and brand damage.
