The scope of Customs Clearance Management includes the documentations for the facilitation of export or imports into a country, customs examination, assessment, payment of duty and accepting delivery of cargo from Customs post clearance. In this complex chain of processes involving multiple stakeholders, technology acts as a catalyst in simplifying and streamlining the myriad processes.
Amidst increasing trade volumes, regulatory compliance has emerged as one of the key challenges for logistics players worldwide. While encouraging trade policies across the globe have given rise to myriad opportunities for cross-border trade, the changing trade dynamics have also altered the role of logistics players.
The role of Customs Brokers (CBs) is no longer limited to merely Customs filing. To maintain a competitive edge and gain customer loyalty in the changing business environment, today’s Customs Brokers are also required to establish connection with multiple trade partners like Airlines, Shipping Lines, Airports, Container Depots, Government Authorities and Transporters. To accommodate the changing nature of business and ensure adherence to local Customs rules and regulations, CBs today need a customs clearance system that is not only technologically sound but also capable of encompassing the changing nature and escalating business volumes experienced by CBs world-wide.
A next generation Customs Clearance Software, CANOPUS, enables CBs to achieve enhanced efficiency in service and reduce operational costs. It enables digital Customs filing and accommodates changing regulatory requirements. CANOPUS facilitates automated filing in compliance with Customs systems wherein it is further segregated into Exports/Imports modules as per business function and Regulatory/Customs compliance.
