Current customs applications are declaration based to support the various customs procedures based on (inter) national laws and regulations. To be able to perform a proper supply chain risk analysis, customs requires having all data in supply chains. The current declaration procedures are not sufficient since they do not supported retrieval of containers stuffing information resulting in the fact that authorities do not have a complete data set. It has been shown that enterprises already have a lot of data available to meet their customer requirements that can be made directly accessible to authorities, instead of 'Pushing' data to the authorities based on procedures.
