Drinks with ICE

[ July 26, 2013   //   ]

The Impatex Customs processing system has added a Registered Excise Dealers and Shippers feature. It comes in response to a request from one of Impatex’s largest and longest-standing customers that wanted to migrate away from a self-developed legacy REDS system.

Impatex MD Peter Day said: “Although the REDS facility is only of interest to a limited number of users, we were happy to accommodate this request for one of our major multi-national customers. Now the development work is done, the feature is available to any ICE customer with a similar requirement.”

He believes that ICE will encourage more freight agents to offer wine and drinks customers the facility to outsource their REDS processing. “With REDS now included in ICE, some larger forwarders may be prepared to take this work on for customers, knowing they have the software to control it. It’s a potential additional revenue stream.”
