The invisible paper chain in today’s Customs document flow and how to break it using Artificial Intelligence
19-10-2023

As in other sectors, the logistics sector has benefited from digitization in recent years, allowing a smoother flow of goods across the globe. These advancements have promised, and to some extent also delivered, efficiency and convenience. However, a more ‘inconvenient truth’ today is that a considerable volume of critical information still circulates in the form of non-standardized documents sent via email. Today, new developments in Artificial Intelligence are proving promising in enabling the data extraction of these unstructured documents and scans to finally fully break the paper chain.

The importance of data in DHL Express
19-10-2023

Quality data is the lifeblood of an efficient Customs clearance process. All Customs tasks and responsibilities are performed, at least in part, on the basis of data received from businesses engaged in trade – for example, data for purposes of revenue collection, risk management, admissibility checks, resource allocation and cooperation with other agencies, as well as the collection of statistical data for macroeconomic decisions.

Transforming trade: how Dubai Customs is harnessing AI for enhanced trade facilitation and border control
19-10-2023

In a world where international trade is the lifeblood of economies, ensuring the smooth flow of goods across borders while maintaining rigorous controls is a challenging balancing act. Dubai, one of the world’s busiest trade hubs, is meeting this challenge head-on by investing in advance technology and embracing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enhance trade facilitation and border control. These efforts are poised not only to bolster Dubai’s position as a global trade and tourist hub, but also to set new standards for Customs operations and services worldwide, which has reflected positively on Dubai Customs client happiness index reaching a score of 98% for smart and electronic services. Some of the projects developed using AI are presented below.

Identifying chemicals precisely through trace analysis is now a reality, opening new doors for Customs officers
19-10-2023

Customs administrations have a full array of tools and technologies at their disposal to test material and substances – both in the field and in their labs. These tools all have benefits and limitations. This article introduces an innovation which enables field officers to analyse trace materials left on any items and obtain the specific name of a trace level substance. Not only can they confirm or allay their suspicions rapidly, but they can also proceed to physical inspection with all the precautions needed.

How Smart Containers could contribute to Customs operations efficiency
19-10-2023

One of the chapters of the innovation white paper[1] recently published by the International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) is titled “Innovation in ports – not only about technology”. It argues that innovation is also about process efficiency, and this includes how data flows among stakeholders and how it is used. Today, thanks to IoT technology, information flow can be generated by cargo containers themselves and be shared across many actors, improving the quality of transport and logistics performance by enabling collaboration among stakeholders.

Leveraging AI for Customs classification purposes
19-10-2023

There are many discussions about the efficiency of classification assistance tools. In this article, we argue that an AI-based tool, if well-built and properly used, can support classification experts, enabling them to focus their attention on unusual and difficult product classifications.

Elevating partnerships between Customs brokers and Customs authorities – the way forward
19-10-2023

One of the benefits of being a Customs broker providing services at the international level is experiencing the flexibility and efficiency of many Customs authorities. One of the challenges is dealing with inconsistencies in how they apply regulations, and the lack of a standard in the processes and technologies they use, which prevents them from collaborating more productively with each other. In this article, we compile input from companies, organizations and individuals to give an overview of the challenges they face, explain existing co-operation mechanisms between Customs, brokers and intermediaries, and explore what more could be done.

Revitalizing cooperation between Ports and Customs
18-10-2023

Maritime transport carries 90 percent of global merchandise trade[1], and impediments to ports’ logistical chains have tangible repercussions in terms of higher trade costs and even shortages of goods and materials. The chains include numerous entities, spanning shipping lines, carrier agents, terminal operators, freight forwarders, road haulage operators, train operators, Port State Control, as well as Customs administrations and other regulatory authorities.

Can Brussels save the worlds rainforests?
11-10-2023

The link between climate change and biodiversity loss is by now well established. As part of its “Green Deal”, the European Union Deforestation Regulation has been published in the Official Journal. This Regulation seeks to protect the worlds forests by banning certain products from being placed on the EU market. This will create an extra layer of bureaucracy for operators in the EU.

CBAM transitional period: roles and responsibilities
11-10-2023

EU’s Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) regulation entered its transitional phase on 1st October, 2023. From that day on, importers have to collect and report data on greenhouse gases emitted during the production of CBAM goods. Since the data must be collected from the manufacturers in non-EU countries, a process must be established for the corresponding communication. Given the complexity of supply chains, this process may involve multiple actors between the importer and third country facilities. In addition, several EU and national authorities are involved. Who is/can be who? Who does what? What are the responsibilities?

Input tax credits on imported goods in Canada
08-10-2023

The person entitled to claim an input tax credit for GST payable on imported goods in Canada is not always the person who pays the tax. This counter-intuitive situation generally occurs when the importer of record is a non-resident. It arises because more than one person may accept liability for duties, taxes and other customs obligations.
