Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Selects GTKonnect FTZ Software to Manage Foreign Trade Zone Requirements

 

GTKonnect, Inc., a premier provider of integrated global supply chain security (SCS) and trade management (GTM) solutions and the company powering the GTKonnect suite, is announcing that Hellman Worldwide Logistics, a leading logistics service provider, has selected GTKonnect FTZ (Foreign Trade Zone) software. Hellmann will utilize the software to automate and simplify complex zone-related data management, deadlines and reporting for its zones across the U.S., with multiple customers in each zone.

Hellmann will use the software to help manage the reporting requirements of The U.S. Foreign Trade Zone program, which will allow its customers the potential to defer, reduce, or even eliminate customs duties on products admitted into the zone. Hellmann will use GTKonnect’s FTZ software for end-to-end management of zone requirements at its zones across the United States. The software will help Hellmann with various tasks, such as in-bonds, receipts, admissions, approvals for activities in the zone, weekly estimates, fees and end-of-year reporting.

Founded in 1871 in Germany, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics is one of the world’s leading privately owned global logistics providers, with an active network of over 19,000 employees in 443 branches in 157 countries. It currently operates two active Foreign Trade Zones in the U.S. (in Indianapolis, Indiana and Miami, Florida) and is scheduled to open three more zones (Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Newark, New Jersey, and San Diego, California). These zones will expand Hellmann’s coverage in offering additional services and opportunities for its customers.

“As our customers’ logistics partner, Hellmann believes our solutions reflect a unique understanding of the trade and logistics industry, with its accompanied regulatory complexities. Because of our history in the market, we are continuing to develop solutions to meet these evolving needs,” said Mark Sola, Vice President of Customs Brokerage and Import Trade Compliance. “The entire Hellmann Customs Brokerage and Import Trade Compliance Department and company senior management team are excited to be part of this opportunity to grow with GTKonnect. With complex zone requirements, we look forward to utilizing GTKonnect to help with compliance visibility, data management, and automation of our zone activities as well as to provide even more efficiencies.” “We are excited to partner with Hellmann, as a worldwide leader in logistics,” said Anand Raghavendran, president and CEO of GTKonnect, “We share their values of providing quality solutions and excellent customer service and look forward to helping them in automating and managing FTZ processes in their zones with GTKonnect.”

"“With our significant import volume and limited resources, the amount of work required to comply with the ISF requirement would have been unmanageable without an efficient system. So we were looking for a solution that would automate the ISF filing process with limited oversight.....

"Our ISF system was up and running in no time and we were ready to file our ISF entries within a few hours.. … were worried as we had tested a few other systems in the last couple of months and none of them were good. The GTKonnect system is so user friendly and we have already filed a few hundred test ISF entries with customs in a couple of weeks and have received error free responses for all."
