European companies face increasingly complex global trade regulations, especially when ensuring compliance with global sanctions and embargo lists. That's why GEODIS, part of SCNF Logistics, decided that it needed an automated solution to screen its third-party trade partners.
As a leading European transport and logistics provider with a worldwide network, GEODIS is dedicated to maintaining the highest level of trade compliance. Historically, verification of customers, partners and transactions was handled semi-independently in each of GEODIS’ five lines of business, with some oversight by the group Customs department. As part of its continual drive to improve standards while increasing efficiency, GEODIS looked for a way to automate and centralize those processes.
Using the Restricted Party Screening module in Amber Road’s Export On-Demand solution, GEODIS will be able to transform its screening processes, replacing numerous disparate and partial systems with a single system covering its worldwide operations.
“Solidifying our compliance systems allows GEODIS to grow in a more assured way, as it protects us from risky transactions and enables us to prove to customers that we are compliant with export control regulations,” said Bruno Beauvillier, Group Customs and Export Control Director at GEODIS. “We chose Amber Road because of its ability to maintain hundreds of lists, and the presence of a local Amber Road team in France gave us great value in supporting our decision process.”
