Potential SAP EM Integration Points with SAP GTS
The following is a short list where SAP EM can be leveraged to provide great value to an existing SAP GTS process:
Manage License Application process: SNAP-R -> Simplified Network Application Process
Managing AES (Automated Export System) or EEI (Electronic Export Information) filing for exports
On the import side, SAP EM can help with Import Security Filing ISF (ISF) or sometimes called 10+2. This process involves the filing of information for the shipment and carrier during transit. This process is time-sensitive and hard to control. The ISF is required to be submitted to CBP (Customs and Border Protection) no later than 24 hours prior to the cargo being loaded on the vessel destined to the United States. With SAP EM managing this service level, deadlines can be ensured.
Managing import status throughout the clearing process. Pro-actively react to delays in customs.
Supporting preference processing (ex: NAFTA) from a LTVD (Long-term vendor declaration) management perspective.
