Stratum's system to automate port clearance and customs paperwork


Instant generation


Reported timesave


Direct API connection
Port clearance post-Brexit
The paperwork, communication with authorities, and coordination across jurisdictions eat up valuable time and resources. Our customers have reported that port clearance accounts for a staggering 85% of their daily workload, so we developed a solution.
Free the team from hours of admin work
The automation streamlines the manual process of collecting MRNs, creating PBNs, and completing GVMS applications by doing it all in the background when booking a boat through Stratum.
Smooth sailing with
clear communication
After automatically contacting the relevant authorities, Stratum will keep drivers and planners up to date through text, email, and in-app messages.
InCab Apps
A hands-off, error free approach
Eliminate the possibility of human error during port clearance. Ensure consistent and reliable results every time. Effortlessly handle larger workloads without taking on additional staff.
30 steps down to 3

Start to finish on one central system

From working with our customers, we’ve seen first-hand the nightmare that is declaring loads for UK and ROI customs. Declaring a single load could be a 30 stage process, involving multiple systems and authorities - combine that with multiple loads a day, and it quickly gets out of hand.
We can cut this process down to 3 simple steps.

1. Book your route

Select you direction of travel. Stratum integrates directly with ferry carriers allowing you to book from inside the TMS. View real-time accurate ferry timings for your selected route and select the most suitable option.

2. Select your vehicles

Like any other job in Stratum, assign your truck and trailer. Use job-notes and our InCab app to keep the driver updated on managing accompaniment or pick up/drop off.

3. Upload your MRN’s

We simplify the headache of managing MRN's down to just one step. Don't waste time manually filing for a PBN or GVMS through outside portals. Just add the MRN's to the job and our automation will apply for, capture, send and save all relevant information for you.
