The Client, one of North America’s leading customs brokers, offers a range of services and solutions to companies with customs brokerage, compliance, trade consulting and freight needs. The Client expected to grow by 50% over the next four years both organically and through strategic acquisitions, and needed to upgrade its systems. The brokerage operation runs on a proprietary system called OCS (“Online Customs System”), written in VAX COBOL utilizing ISAM, VSAM and RDB databases. OCS is the account data repository for all of the Client’s lines of business.
