This Aerospace company is a large importer of airplane parts, producing seats, walls, windows, full laboratories and galleys to parts to major airlines, OEMs and tier one and two companies. Prior to KlearNow, this company did not have a standard operating procedure and dealt with multiple brokers to handle their large volumes of shipments. They needed a solution to manage their brokers, a consolidated view of all their documents and create a robust compliance program. Importing high volumes of goods can cause errors and inefficiencies through dated processes. Searching for shipping documents and following up on shipment statuses by sifting through emails, and phone calls is inefficient and takes time away from growing the business. Lack of transparency through all the key players in the supply chain can cause compliance issues, over payment in duties and staff inefficiencies.

“[KlearNow.AI team] are very responsive and that’s super important when it comes to a Broker relationship, making sure that we’ve got that transparency that the right questions are asked that they’re catching things. Sometimes we don’t catch it and they do.”

“We’re on customs radar and as a larger importer and in this enforcement climate, it’s super important for us to have a really robust program and standard operating procedure with our brokers.”
Comprehensive Reporting and Analytics
With the Klearview dashboard, this company was able to pull custom reports without having to spend ours pulling data from spreadsheets and emails.
“The portal has been really helpful. All of the documents are at my fingertips. It’s super intuitive. So I don’t need an instruction manual to figure out how to use the portal. I can usually figure it out just by a couple of clicks.”
Scale the Business
KlearNow.AI acts as an extension of the team, without having to add headcount, we take care of the duties and payments for customs.
“[Klearnow.AI] takes care of the duties and payments for customs, I’m not having to add another full-time person in my accounting department for that because I just really can’t see them being able to manage customs network for payments and managing everything else.”
