  • AA Shipping wanted a system to fully automate their freight forwarding business processes.
  • Titan Systems was able to quickly customize its 4Trade system to meet AA Shipping’s requirements.
  • The new system enables AA to speed services to customers and reduce administrative costs.

A custom ERP developed by Titan Systems has been deployed by AA Shipping to manage the company’s entire freight forwarding and customs clearing activities from booking to customs to operations and finance.

AA Shipping LTD and its Royal Cargo tax division deployed the customized ERP system based on the Magic xpa Application Platform from Magic Software Enterprises.

Magic is a global provider of software platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business integration. Titan Software Systems specializes in financial and logistics computing solutions and advanced technology for shipping agents, freight forwarders, and customs brokers. AA Shipping is an international shipping company providing air and ocean freight forwarding and customs clearance services.

AA Shipping and Royal Cargo, its customs brokerage arm, wanted a system to fully automate all internal processes required to manage their freight forwarding business, including customs clearance and taxes imposed by the government at the Israeli ports of Haifa, Ashdod, Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion International Airport. Titan answered their need by customizing their existing Magic-based 4Trade ERP system to include an interface with the Israeli Tax Authority’s Gateway to the World application for customs and tax compliance along with customized interdepartmental application flows and reporting capabilities.

“We needed an automated system that would enable us to provide added value to our customers and our business,” said Ephraim Tzuk, CEO of Royal Cargo. “Titan was able to quickly customize their 4Trade system to meet our demanding requirements. By optimizing our processes, this new system enables us to speed up services to our customers, reduce administrative costs, and allow everyone to focus more attention and resources on their core activities.”

“We are excited about Titan’s successful ERP project,” added Arik Mifano, managing director of Magic Israel. “The fact that 4Trade was developed with Magic’s powerful and flexible application platform enabled Titan to quickly customize the system to meet AA Shipping and Royal Cargo’s specific requirements. Titan is one of over 3000 Magic partners using Magic’s rapid cross-platform development tool to build off-the-shelf desktop and mobile applications with a single skill set. Magic xpa’s ease of use and rich development capabilities enables our customers to focus on their core activities, giving them a competitive edge in the different vertical markets they serve.”

Under the terms of the deal, Magic Israel and Titan Systems will provide AA Shipping and Royal Cargo with maintenance and support services for the system for 10 years.
