Problem addressed

Trading between different regions often involves complex customs declaration for trade and logistics, and the processing time is long. This platform adopts the latest Al technology and big data analytics to provide platform users with the necessary tools to facilitate their information to deal with customs declaration.

  • The platform system leverages Al and big data analytics technologies to rank and identify a list of suitable HS codes, the associated tax rates and permits required. The users can then select an appropriate HS code conveniently.
