DeltaWMS:Bond warehouse management system will support new EU-wide ‘EMCS’ initiative to capture and monitor duty-suspended, excise goods – electronically.
DeltaWMS, the UK’s fastest growing supplier of interactive warehouse management systems is the first software supplier to have completed Revenue & Customs HMR&C system testing for EMCS – the new Excise Movement and Control, EU-wide system designed to capture and monitor duty-suspended excise goods electronically and scheduled for April 2010 launch – DeltaWMS announced today. Delta’s DeltaWMS:Bond, best-in-class bonded warehouse management system can now be used by participants in the EMCS process to electronically capture the movement of bonded goods – linking 150,000 traders in 27 national administrations across the EU.
EMCS was originally agreed by all Member States in June 2003 and replaces the current paper-based Administrative Accompanying Document (AAD) system. This move follows the recommendations of an EU High Level Working Group which analysed excise fraud and identified weaknesses in excise procedures – notably AAD. EU Member States’ national EMCS’ will be linked through a central domain maintained by the European Commission.
EMCS will capture and process AAD information for all movements of duty-suspended excise goods, validating data and notifying dispatch and receipt in real time. Registered warehouse keepers will exchange electronic messages containing specific consignment and movement information with their trading counterparts, throughout the EU.
"Our early success with EMCS underlines our pre-eminent position in the bonded warehouse segment of the supply chain software market" comments Delta director Lance Bennett. "Because DeltaWMS:Bond has been developed from scratch for bonded warehouse users it will optimise ECMS performance".
