The new system called the 'Gold Card' programme, allows DHL customers to lodge and complete customs declaration processes prior to the arrival of their goods. Using DHL's EDI Solution, customers can now send their shipment information electronically and receive customs clearance confirmation within a few hours, with shipments cleared in the air before landing in Abu Dhabi.

The new DHL EDI Solution will mean customers will exchange business information between computer systems

using EDI messaging. This close integration will allow businesses to achieve greater speed, reliability, control, and cost savings. It also helps optimise and improve operational processing, enhance data quality, increase productivity, allow early data availability, secure information exchange, and audit trails.

Ultimately it will improve transit time of shipments, avoid duplication with a paper-free clearance environment, and increase efficiency overall.
