Customs Automation - ASYCUDA


The UNCTAD Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) is an integrated customs management system for international trade and transport operations in a modern automated environment.

  • Improving security by streamlining procedures of cargo control, transit of goods and clearance of goods

  • Helping fight corruption by enhancing the transparency of transactions

  • Promoting sustainable development by cutting down on the use of paper, through the use of electronic transactions and documents
