Customs cloud

Mader implements PROLAG®World as an ASP solution in the internet. The logistics provider rents the use of PROLAG®World and operates the software through a web browser.

Goods receipt – interface number 1

As soon as the trucks with the customs goods arrive at the warehouse in Ansbach, PROLAG®World transmits the MRN (movement reference number) to ATLAS over the interface. Using the unloading list, employees check that list and goods correspond. PROLAG®World then sends a verification message to ATLAS and transfers the goods in temporary storage to customs warehousing. PROLAG®World creates mixed pallets at the goods receipt area which are then clearly labelled and booked into the warehouse.

Goods issue – interface number 2

The retrieval process in PROLAG®World is triggered on the basis of kanban cards. Employees in the warehouse pick the requested circuit boards from the customs warehouse according to the FIFO principle. The customs declaration is registered automatically: The logistics software informs the customs service provider about the planned retrieval over the interface including the relevant information such as ATLAS registration number, storage location and article number. Within an hour, the circuit boards are registered at the relevant customs office and a confirmation is sent to Mader.
