CIMEX is Charter’s proprietary online data, and document storage and reporting system. This state-of-the-art system allows clients to track the status of transactions, download and analyze import data and access electronic copies of all documents. CIMEX maintains and makes data available at a detailed level not available on other systems. Imbedded links within our searchable database permit the user to access all documents, including government and commercial forms from pre-clearance through post-entry or export. The seamless interface of data and documents is a powerful tool that permits fast, efficient, real-time review of all transactions.
CIMEX includes a Compliance Module, which is based on the focus areas identified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for the Importer Self-Assessment Program. The Compliance Module is designed to measure substantive compliance against the requirements for tariff classification, appraisement, country of origin, and eligibility under free trade agreements and special duty programs, among others. The module can be customized to reflect the specific business operations of each client. All necessary information to prove or test the compliance of any transaction is located in one secure, central data repository, accessible via a secure web-enabled portal.
