Shipping Solutions is teaming up with NextLinx Corporation
to offer NextLinx's compliance database in an upcoming release of its export documentation software due out in April 2003. Companies and individuals who export to entities on any of the restricted parties lists or who export goods without a required export license can lose their export privileges, be fined or even be criminally prosecuted. Prior to this partnership, small and medium-sized exporters often couldn't afford access to databases that simplified the compliance process.
"In response to increased security concerns, U.S. Customs and the Bureau of Industry and Security have placed a greater emphasis on the end-use and end-users of exported items," said David Noah, president of Shipping Solutions. "By partnering with NextLinx, Shipping Solutions continues
to provide companies with an easy way to prepare export documents, as well as an easy and affordable way to ensure that their exports are compliant with U.S. Export Administration Regulations."
