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. PSA Peugeot Citroën is also involved in financing activities (Banque PSA Finance), logistics (Gefco) and automotive equipment (Faurecia).
With a volume of around 200,000 customs declarations per year, PSA is one of the largest customs declarants in France, with the need for a customs software provider that is able to handle this considerable amount. In 2011, PSA started its customs software provider selection process by evaluating the following key decision criteria: experience in the automotive industry, offering a multi-country customs software as basis for rollouts into other countries than France as well as the capability to create innovative solutions (e.g. Software as a Service - SaaS). MIC was the only provider that fulfilled those and additional criteria and finally convinced PSA due to its professionalism and reliability. Since December 2011, PSA Peugeot Citroën is using MIC CUST® (Import&Export Handling) and MIC CCS (Central Classification System) as SaaS solution for its French customs operations.The rollout to Slovakia and Spain is currently ongoing.
