Current overview of software on the subject of ATLAS (Automated Tariff and Local Customs Clearance System). The software listed in this section enables exporting companies or their service providers (e.g. forwarding agents) to automate customs clearance or the customs procedure via the Internet.
Through ATLAS customs software, for example, notices of import duties, customs declarations and other written documents are generated in the form of digital messages (EDIFACT) and exchanged via the Internet. According to Article 6 of the Union Customs Code (UCC), all data exchange between customs and traders (applications, import declarations, export declarations, decisions) should take place electronically. In most cases, the software also includes interfaces to European customs systems such as e-dec, e-zoll and AGS (formerly Sagitta).
