Export Compliance Manager

Contact Us for Pricing

Our online Export Compliance Manager software tool helps you generate export documentation & perform essential compliance activities across your entire organization. Export Compliance has never been this easy!

Export Compliance Manager (ECM) is an online tool that offers Exporters a whole host of compliance functionality anywhere, 24/7. This system is designed to streamline your compliance workflow, reducing human errors and delays along your supply chain, and therefore saving you money. What’s more, our system learns from each export transaction you create, making it easier and more efficient as you use it.


ECM helps you create export documents and then simultaneously distribute them to everyone who needs them. It builds a database as it goes, that pre-fills shipment templates based on your previous entries. ECM also determines which documents you need based on your shipment – Shipper’s Letter of Instruction (SLI), Commercial and Pro Forma Invoices, Packing Lists and more – and builds them from saved templates. This saves time and ensures better document consistency company-wide. The dashboard shows you exactly where you are in the export compliance process, and automatic alerts keep you aware of items that need immediate attention.


DB Schenker has been in business for over 140 years. We know Export Compliance from top to bottom. Whatever your business needs — save time, money and hassle with ECM.
