Kewill Sets the Pace in Importer Compliance for 10+2 Rule

Kewill Announces Collaborative 10+2 Portal to Support Customs Brokers, Importers, and Forwarders Kewill (LSE: KWL), a leading provider of global trade and logistics software, today announced Kewill ISF (Importer Security Filing), a web-based application to support importers', customs brokers and forwarders reporting requirements with the impending '10+2' Rule, by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). As one of the most significant regulatory changes in years, the 10+2 rule is expected to alter the flow of information in supply chains for imports to the US. Newly required information such as, Container Stuffing Location, Consolidator Name and Address and Commodity HTS numbers are now being required much earlier in the cycle than have been before. For many importers, this will require a much deeper view into their supply chain to capture this data and make it available in time to comply with the ISF regulations. Future benefits for brokers, forwarders and importers include, improved visibility and the optimization of business processes that will help maintain a competitive advantage for all parties involved in this process. "Kewill recognizes how these changes will have a significant impact on our customers and the importing industry," said Ken Halle, chief strategy officer for Kewill. "Kewill has always been at the forefront of providing the most compliant software for this market and has been closely engaged with the authorities to deliver a solution that addresses the issues of "10+2". Kewill is actively working with our customers to ensure they have the tools and the solutions they need to comply when the regulations are issued."
