VCK Logistics Airfreight
VCK Logistics Airfreight, an internationally operating logistics service provider stationed at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, facilitates all types of air freight services worldwide – from general to very complex cargo. To the logistics company, it is very important that all process steps can be monitored and customs are provided with the necessary import and export information to get the goods across the border. To achieve this, they needed a powerful FMS solution that could optimally support them. The choice fell on Boltrics.
Eric Aarsen, Managing Director at VCK Logistics Airfreight: “We have chosen Boltrics software – based on Microsoft Dynamics – as it uses the latest technology. Enabling us to easily interface with other parties and enable us to support our air freight specific processes. In addition, the same solution also houses our warehouse and transport activities, which makes it possible to integrate all process in one solution, enter data only once, and create with our management information a complete overview of all our activities at a glance. An important added value is that the solution was built within standard Navision technology, so without customization, we can always seamlessly upgrade and we are no longer face the problem of outdated legacy software.”
Jan Bolks, CEO at Boltrics: “Together with VCK, we have greatly expanded the Forwarding module of our solution. This includes features like import and export documents and the support of various (e-)air waybills (Master, House, and Back2Back). To reduce the chance of errors, our FMS solution provides an AWB template that complies with IATA regulations. In addition, a large number of links have been realized, including OAG, Cargo Guide, the EU database (RAKC) and the ECB. In addition, IATA-Cass notes are automatically read. During a shipment, it is clear which flights are available, and what are the associated costs. Furthermore, it is possible to make one flight reservation or a whole set of flight reservations. Next to that, the already existing interface with Cargonaut (DGVS) has been expanded with a large number of interfaces, including full customs declaration streams in AGS. Enabling VCK Logistics Airfreight to automate customs declarations, automatically generated the required documents and always gain insight into the customs process.”
