Huawei says it has worked with global ecosystem partners - including CUPIA, Maxvision Technology, and Powerbridge - to leverage its strengths in cloud computing, big data, and AI to put together a “secure, convenient, and efficient Smart Customs Solution."
Huawei has launched the Smart Customs Solution globally during the Huawei Industrial Digital Transformation Conference 2021, and it focuses on customs-specific scenarios, with emphasis on goods, vehicles, enterprises, and places to achieve what the company says is comprehensive digital supervision capability, making cross-border trade easier and secured.
York Yuekun, President of Huawei's Global Government Business Unit, said: "Serving 170 countries around the world, Huawei understands the challenges and requirements of customs.To achieve efficient clearance and ensure convenient declaration, a comprehensive digital upgrade of customs services is needed.”
Huawei says that in an increasingly globalised world, customs is expected to assume new and increasingly important responsibilities in support of national economy and trade development.
“While strengthening the supervision of trade security, convenient clearance services must also be provided to improve the overall service experience. This is the driving force behind the digital transformation of customs,” Huawei said in a statement.
Augustine Chiew, Huawei's Director of Global Customs and Tax Industries, who released the solution, said, "The Smart Customs Solution will support and aid the implementation of self-service customs clearance in cross-border logistics while ensuring the entire process remain under security supervision.
“One-stop services such as declaration, payment, and goods release, are now available to enterprises. The solution also achieves comprehensive management of goods, vehicles, enterprises and places."
Huawei announced it has also developed the Intelligent Cube solution for customs clearance at ports, which it says pre-integrates computing, storage, network, and security capabilities, supporting intelligent checkpoints, customs clearance systems in a “unified manner, allowing customs authorities to build one-stop smart customs clearance capabilities quickly.”
“The average deployment time is reduced by approximately 60%, with vehicle clearance time shortened to seconds, greatly improving the intelligence and clearance efficiency of ports," Huawei says.
“To meet the network requirements of different scenarios, services, and data in customs, Huawei leverages years of expertise in network connectivity to develop an intent-driven customs network scenario-based solution.
“This solution uses technologies such as Wi-Fi 6, FlexE-based network slicing, iLossless algorithm, and AI knowledge graph to achieve wide coverage and full connection in all customs scenarios, ensuring low latency and zero packet loss for core services.
“It also shortened the mean time to repair (MTTR) from 4 hours to 10 minutes, greatly improving user experience. It includes intelligent ultra-broadband, intelligent connection, and intelligent O&M capabilities meeting the digital transformation requirements of customs.
“It is our firm belief that digital technologies will continue to drive the transformation of various industries. Therefore, Huawei will continue to iteratively innovate smart solutions to help reshape the future of smart customs, facilitate its digital transformation making cross-border trade easier and secured.”
