With its two globally renowned brands, Peugeot and Citroën, PSA Peugeot Citroën sold more than 3.5 million vehicles worldwide in 2011. As Europe's second largest carmaker, the group generated revenues of €59.9 billion. PSA has sales operations in 160 countries, 16 production facilities - including joint ventures - and more than 209,000 employees worldwide.
Currently, with an estimated volume of around 200,000 customs declarations per year, PSA is one of the largest customs declarants in France. Considering PSA's global scope, the need for a global customs software provider became more and more relevant over the past years.
Jean-Philippe Lacroix, Director Customs & Foreign Trade (Directeur Douane et Commerce Extérieur), says, "It is not only about handling that considerable amount of French customs declarations, we also have international customs needs. This requires a customs software provider with the capacity to innovate."
