Towards Ubiquitous e-Custom Services

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    In this paper we present an advanced e-custom system pilot designed to address strategic goals for future custom systems. Future custom systems will support simplified paperless trade procedures, prevent potential security threats and counterfeit tax related fraud while at the same time insure interoperability with other e-custom systems within and outside Europe. The focus is placed on the advantages of use of novel technologies for the implementation of advanced e-custom systems. In particular we highlight the use of service oriented architecture (SOA), web services and TREC (Tamper Resistant Embedded Controller) device in an integrated framework named EPCIS (Electronic Product Code for Information Systems). Among the advantages of the presented solution are: the ubiquitous access to the location of goods through its supply chain, the provision of evidence for import/export, the notification through alerts in case of exceptions (such as deviation from the planned trajectory, abnormal conditions for containers, etc.).
