Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Selects GTKonnect Software for Foreign Trade Zone Requirements

Logistics operator to use GTKonnect to help customers in agriculture, automotive, perishables, cruise, fashion and other industries manage FTZ requirement at its zones across the U.S.

Netwin Solutions Inc., a provider of integrated global supply chain security (SCS) and trade management (GTM) and the company powering the GTKonnect suite, is announcing that Hellman Worldwide Logistics, a logistics service provider, has selected GTKonnect FTZ (Foreign Trade Zone) software. Hellmann will utilize the software to automate and simplify complex zone-related data management, deadlines and reporting for its zones across the U.S., with multiple customers in each zone.

Hellmann will use the software to help manage the reporting requirements of The U.S. Foreign Trade Zone program, which will allow its customers the potential to defer, reduce or even eliminate customs duties on products admitted into the zone. Hellmann will use GTKonnect’s FTZ software for end-to-end management of zone requirements at its zones across the United States. The software will help Hellmann with various tasks, such as in-bonds, receipts, admissions, approvals for activities in the zone, weekly estimates, fees and end-of-year reporting.

Founded in 1871 in Germany, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics is one of the world’s leading privately owned global logistics providers, with an active network of over 19,000 employees in 443 branches in 157 countries. It currently operates two active Foreign Trade Zones in the U.S. (in Indianapolis, Indiana and Miami, Florida) and is scheduled to open three more zones (Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Newark, New Jersey, and San Diego, California). These zones will expand Hellmann’s coverage in offering additional services and opportunities for its customers.

“As our customers’ logistics partner, Hellmann believes our solutions reflect a unique understanding of the trade and logistics industry, with its accompanied regulatory complexities. Because of our history in the market, we are continuing to develop solutions to meet these evolving needs,” said Mark Sola, vice president of Customs Brokerage and Import Trade Compliance. “The entire Hellmann Customs Brokerage and Import Trade Compliance Department and company senior management team are excited to be part of this opportunity to grow with GTKonnect. With complex zone requirements, we look forward to utilizing GTKonnect to help with compliance visibility, data management, and automation of our zone activities as well as to provide even more efficiencies.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
