Use case: Saving money on multi-country filing

A food manufacturer was reliant on numerous brokers to process import and export declarations for multiple countries. Upon shipment and again at arrival, goods were delayed for an hour or more while awaiting response from the customs broker, which added significant time and stress in the transport of perishable items.


  • Brought customs in-house 
  • Automated declarations for 4 import countries and 5 export countries
  • Gained broker independence
  • Fully supported by managed services; no new FTEs necessary
  • After-hours support
  • Faster delivery times on perishable goods
  • 90% of recurring declaration costs saved annually

How it works 

Portorium’s blended solution allows you to benefit from the efficiencies of a digital solution without having to hire the resources to manage it. Our software and domain specialists onboard you and ensure the accuracy of your declarations with expert oversight.


Our team will assess your trade lanes and processes and help define the declaration procedure requirements for the logistics flows you want to automate or insource. As there is a vast number of options for declaration procedures, some guidance by our experts will help define the project implementation scope.  


We follow a proven onboarding methodology to configure the declaration software to meet your specific needs, maximising opportunities for automation. We then work side by side with your team to set up and test integration with your ERP and business processes.


Our managed services team will take over monitoring, validating, and executing day-to-day declarations operations, either in full or as an augmentation of your customs team. We offer both standard hours and round-the-clock services, depending on your requirements. Regardless of our level of involvement, you retain full visibility into your customs operations, giving you insights and control to optimise based on what is working.
