WMS provider MACS Software is partnering with e-customs, the UK's leading web-based custom clearance consultancy, to create a best of breed integrated solution for warehouse management and customs clearance. The addit
The addition of e-customs products such as Webware for dry goods and Wetware for excise goods - eg alcoholic drinks - into the MACS Software products portfolio will allow MACS' customers to manage bonded stores using a system that is integrated with their existing WMS.
The e-customs warehousing products are used by companies who import goods and wish to defer the payment of import tax and VAT until they are sold. This is particularly important for companies with a large stockholding or those engaged in a seasonal business, for example those importing goods in advance of Christmas sales. The system communicates with HMRC and provides an audit trail, with very little effort from the importing company.
Tony Liddar, MACS' md says: "ecustoms is a market leading product that enables us to provide a fully integrated, best of breed system to all our customers that operate bonded stores, even those with multiple sites."
