I would recommend KlearNow.AI as it's fast, easy-to-use and the support is second-to-none. The online portal/cloud is great and an easy place to store everything and for our company to stay compliant. I'm a big fan. I just wish haulers would help me more!
Export Area Manager and Supplier Logistics, Automotive Company
KlearNow provides us with great clearance and visibility for both our own imports and those of our customers. They are critical to the success of our team.
Director, Global Forwarding
From an initial contact and presentation of their systems and understanding their proven record in the US/Canada. I was clear that KlearNow.AI could step up to the challenge of BREXIT. KlearNow.AI and the systems they have developed are proving invaluable to our company.
The speed in which accurate declarations are submitted and approved in most instances are down to minutes. This is a process that if brought in-house would have significantly impacted on our staffing levels and would have inevitably created delays and inaccuracies.
The communication and response time is exceptional and in truth I admire how they make this possible in a startup position in the UK, however I suspect that the caliber of people, having recruited some of the best customs specialist across the UK, has played a big part in this.
It would be fair to say that without the support of KlearNow.AI and their platform I have no idea how I would managed to keep my imports rolling on time. The platform is user friendly, and I especially like to be able to download the C88 documents as I like to give my hauler a hard copy.Managing Director, Trade Services
