ABN Amro is to integrate NextLinx's trade content engines and wizards for importers and exporters into its global trade and advisory Web site and online products.
NextLinx says the integrated toolset will enable ABN Amro customers to ensure they are not dealing with denied parties, to calculate landed costs for shipments, to identify required import and export licenses, and to expedite customs processing by verifying documentation.
"The continued emergence of the Internet and e-commerce provides a real opportunity to solve many of the inefficiencies inherent in cross-border trade," says Kristen Fletcher, managing director of ABN Amro's global trade and advisory group. "With the addition of trade content tools from NextLinx we can now offer superior value to importers and exporters by integrating regulatory trade content into our cross-border trade facilitation products."
The Dutch bank says it has also retained NextLinx to assist in the technical development and implementation of a next generation cross-border trade e-commerce solution.
