In today’s fast-paced world, time is of the essence. Processing all incoming documents is a time-consuming process, making it difficult to stay efficient. Yet that document flow is of great importance in many places, for example when it comes to importing and exporting goods. We also see this in companies operating in fruit and vegetable transportation.

The European Union (EU) has strict quality regulations that imported fruit and vegetables must meet. The Quality Control Bureau (KCB) is responsible for carrying out checks on compliance with these regulations. After approval, businesses receive a certificate of release (P2 code) or a certified inspection certificate from the KCB. However, this process may involve multiple containers, expected in multiple files, making it a daunting task to handle manually.

Form Recognition offers the solution

You may have previously read about Form Recognition’s ability to automatically process purchase invoices, NOAs and Customs documents. That blog already announced: as you read this, new models are being trained and added. Now the model is available for processing “Notifications Status Pre-Notification KCB”!

How does it work?

Form Recognition recognises the data from the document and appends the status message and P2 code to the related files. This also works when multiple containers and/or files are involved. If you are in the fruit and vegetable import business, you will undoubtedly recognise these documents.

Time-saving and less risk of errors

By automating this process, you can process status messages faster with minimal human intervention. This not only saves time, it reduces the likelihood of errors. It also helps streamline the entire process, making it more efficient and cost-effective. As more companies adopt this technology, we can expect further improvements in the clearance process, ultimately benefiting the entire industry.
