Reference story: Roth Industries automates export control and preference management


Following the successful deployment of Mercoline's M.SecureTrade Export Control and M. SecureTrade Sanctions List Check solutions, Roth Industries wants to automate the process of obtaining and managing supplier declarations and calculating preference entitlements.


  • Recognition of preference entitlements already during sales talks
  • Significant improvement in the quality of master data
  • Efficient proof of legal security to customs

"The customs requirements are often very complex. For example, we need an average of 50 minutes just to check and process a supplier's declaration. With several hundred declarations per year, that adds up to a considerable sum."
Ulrich Meyer, Customs and Export Officer at Roth Industries
