Test run for the smooth flow of goods

BREMEN. Since November, BLG LOGISTICS and SecureSystem have been testing a newly developed service for smooth and secure transport routes within the framework of the “FastLane” project. The purpose of the approach is to shorten the time required for customs clearance in destination ports and to simplify the customs process. To this end, BLG LOGISTICS shipped 20 containers equipped with a sensor system from SecureSystem from Bremen to America. If one of the contai­ners is opened without permission during the test run, a message is send directly to the parties defined beforehand and to the customs authority.
