Significant VAT changes for cross-border e-Commerce from 2021

Are you compliant?

New regulations and laws are changing cross-border trade, presenting huge challenges to anyone involved in cross-border shipments and e-commerce. Postal and parcel companies, carriers as well as e-commerce retailers need to adapt their processes to remain compliant and capture the opportunity of fast growing cross-border trade.

As a result of this fast-changing landscape Prime Vision developed hardware and software solutions to automate the processing of international packets and parcels containing the CN22 and CN23 labels.

Our solution provides (semi-)automated data entry of all required customs data for postal items that were not pre-announced digitally.

Our solution for international parcels ensures compliancy and efficiency

Prime Vision developed the Customs Vision by leveraging state-of-the-art neural networks based on AI and Deep Learning techniques. By presenting thousands of previously unfathomable addresses of individual countries to the neural network, the solution can learn the formats, regularities and connections within address formats.

The Customs Vision manages the semi-automated coding process, that is required to obtain all data needed to clear a postal item through customs. The automated part of the product consists of the following components:

  1. Central Workflow System  for identification
  2. Sender, receiver and custom fields OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for clearance purposes
  3. Web-based data entry video coding platform
  4. Smart Station for image acquisition and barcode reading
