Customsdigital -
t
he online magazine for digitization of the customs world

Our vision - revolutionize the customs world and make IT easy to understand for customs experts

Acting on our own initiative, with a passion for customs, and a fascination with digitization, we developed the Customsdigital project.

Perhaps you recognize the following situation, when you as a customs professional speak to an IT expert. Suddenly there are terms being used that might as well be another language. API, crawling, backbone, BinHex, IOT, just to mention a few. And then the thought: “It’s all Greek to me”.

In the same way, you regularly come across buzzwords, like artificial intelligence, blockchain, and “in future, everything will be automated”. You then go to the office and print out documents to type up the customs declaration, and realize that the dream is still far from reality.

Why Customsdigital?

“Thanks to a broad scope of application, what may sound complex at first is actually fascinating. As customs experts who are familiar with the UCC and regulations, Customsdigital aims to bring us a step closer to the issue of digitization, explaining it, and stimulating ideas for our own projects.”

To put it simply, we want to bring together two “nerds” who need each other. To this end, we look forward to many interesting suggestions, as well as people who are keen to support the project and share their knowledge.

The future of customs audits – it does not always need an external view
23-01-2022

A status quo of the customs and export control relevant processes in the company is important for an effective internal control system (ICS) as well as for your own 'clarity'. We know from our experience that processes in the customs area often remain unchanged for a long time and have 'grown historically'. As a result, potential savings, especially in the area of digitalisation, are often not recognised.

Digital twin - application examples for the customs world
03-07-2021

The digital twin is the exact virtual representation of a product or system that exactly describes the individual properties of the real counterpart. So there is a 1:1 relationship between the digital and physical world. The digital twin behaves in the virtual environment in the same way as the physical counterpart in reality. As a virtual image, with real data included, the digital twin enables all "what-if" questions to be answered. By simulating optimization approaches, the digital twin makes change effects visible as a whole.
