After 5 months of implementation of the automated system for Aviation Customs management and supervision for imported and exported goods and in transit at Noi Bai International Airport, the Customs automated system has brought positive results in reducing clearance time for enterprises.
According to Ha Noi Customs Department, the deployment of the automated system has saved at least 27 minutes per shipment. Noi Bai Airport has 3,000 shipments on average per day; thereby, it saves 81,000 minutes equal to 1,350 hours per day.
In addition, it also saves time and cost of goods release for importers and exporters because they do not have to submit paper dossiers and goods for the Customs.
Also, importers and exporters can search the status of their shipments (in and out warehouse or permitted out of the supervision area) in accordance with the Unique Consignment Reference number to actively take goods.
The process of automated Customs management and supervision for imported and exported goods and in transit at Noi Bai International Airport includes the following steps:
-The airlines sends information about cargo 3 hours before a plane lands;
-The Customs grants the Unique Consignment Reference number;
-The warehouse firms send information of actual goods in the warehouses;
- Importers and exporters carry out Customs declaration;
-The Customs send information of Customs declarations that meet conditions to the Supervision area;
-The warehouse firms check declared information with actual goods;
-The warehouse firms send information of goods that importers and exporters are permitted to take.
