CERS, G7 EDI Reporting for Exports from Canada

Descartes Visual Compliance™ has incorporated electronic G7 reporting capabilities into the Export Documentation Manager application to assist Canadian exporters to meet electronic reporting obligations with CBSA via solutions that can handle large volumes of data when used with the G7 EDI system and keep their supply chain moving smoothly.

Meet your obligations with CBSA easily

New legislative changes are obligating organizations exporting from Canada to report their export activity electronically to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) via the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS) or the G7 Export Reporting Electronic Data Interchange (G7 EDI). The previous CBSA solution–Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) process – has been decommissioned along with paper submission of the B13A form.

You can’t grow your business if you keep doing manual screening. Descartes Visual Compliance was very easy to integrate into our existing ERP and sales platform. Now we have an automated way to check every order as it comes in. There’s no manual screening and we only have to go in to check when there is a flag.
