ZF North America joins MIC's long list of automotive customers in the Americas, including General Motors, Daimler Trucks and Delphi Automotive.
On the heels of the highly successful implementation in the EU, the North American rollout will focus on MIC's solution for efficient automated calculation of preferential origin, including management of supplier declarations (MIC OCS), which supports the handling of more than 85 free trade agreements (FTAs). Also included will be MIC's tariff classification tool, CCS, which allows users to classify products accurately and efficiently for different national tariffs, resulting in both cost savings and increased compliance. The ZF project will also cover the American Automotive Labelling Act calculations and supplier solicitations.
ZF has already implemented NAFTA management for the project's pilot factory, and several other U.S. plants will be brought on board in 2016/2017. Andrew Martin, MIC Customs Solutions Project Manager, states "These tools will greatly streamline ZF's FTA preference calculation and automate many aspects of supplier solicitation. ZF, its customers and suppliers will enjoy significant efficiencies supported by a robust audit trail for all NAFTA compliance activities."
The MIC team currently employs over 240+ professionals around the world. More than 700 international customers, many of whom are global players, rely on MIC Customs Solutions software products for their global trade management needs in nearly 50 countries, on six continents.
