Amsterdam Airport Schiphol implements Compliance Checker tool

The new online customs compliance system, developed by Cargonaut and tested by KLM Cargo, was designed to improve inbound and outbound air cargo flows and trucking customs compliance at the Netherlands airport.

   Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has implemented a new online compliance system as part of Schiphol’s Smart Cargo Mainport Program, the airport said in a statement.
   The Compliance Checker program speeds up cargo flows by automatically inspecting and detecting data errors in air waybills, thereby preventing delays caused by non-compliant cargo at European Union Customs as well as other countries.
   The system was developed as part of the European Green Fast Lanes Project and is currently undergoing trials on the truck lane from Frankfurt, Germany to Amsterdam. According to Schiphol, the tests have already been successful on air cargo shipments out the Amsterdam airport. 
   Developed by Cargonaut and tested by KLM Cargo, Compliance Checker “allows for easy modification and new rule sets, making it compatible and generic so that any part of the air cargo supply chain can use it,” said Schiphol.
   According to Nanne Onland, executive director of Cargonaut, “The system recognizes different descriptions of a similar product and flags this. The term iron, for example, would provoke an alert, as this term is not compliant with Customs rules, whereas the term iron pipes would not cause an alert because it is compliant.”
   Schiphol reports that the first results are promising, with the tool showing 80 percent of errors occurring in only 20 percent of shipments.
   The European Green Fast Lanes Project launched last year and aims to improve KLM Cargo’s truck supply lanes and find innovative schemes to improve cargo flow through Amsterdam.
