Discover why progressive chambers, exporters and freight forwarders have eliminated paper processing of Certificates of Origin

Chambers of Commerce play a central role in facilitating global trade. These services include the issuing of Certificates of Origin (COO) and other supporting documents for exporters. Current practice sees Certificates of Origin couriered to the Chamber of Commerce for certification – an costly, inefficient and time-consuming paper-based process for chambers, exporters and freight forwarders. The costs associated with paper based COO certification practices include:

  • Courier costs
  • Appointments/scheduling
  • Productivity losses
  • Workflow inefficiencies
  • Increased certification turnaround times
  • Delays/missed Deadlines

essCert presents a complete solution to the challenges that chambers and exporters experience by turning the existing paper-based process for stamping and signing of trade documents into a streamlined electronic system – providing chambers and their members real value in cost savings and efficiency gains.
