Product classification supported for over 40,000 products

Rockville, MD  October 15, 2003  Creo Inc., a solutions provider for the graphic arts industry, announced that it would use NextLinx Corp.'s Trade Wizards, along with its SAP enterprise resource planning application, to automate the extension of its existing 40,000 product classification database.

Creo said it plans to utilize Trade Wizards to support its SAP Pacific Rim rollout and streamline the flow of shipments to Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, China and Japan.

Specifically, Creo will use the NextLinx Product Classification Wizard, which determines harmonized tariff schedule codes for any product being shipped to or from any country in accordance with the regulations set forth by Customs and other regulatory authorities. Also using the Product Classification Wizard, Creo said it would be able to determine multiple iterations of all product classification numbers.

"NextLinx Trade Wizard is another tool that will enable us in driving continuous improvement across our global trade network," said Steve Aiello, manager of Global Customs Compliance at Creo Inc.
