The exhibition in the media

The international exhibition “Customs Service 2017” has opened in Moscow. In line with tradition, during the first day of the exhibition valuable cultural artefacts salvaged by the Russian customs officials were handed over to the representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church. Anton Nikolaev has more details.

The Russian Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov and the Head of the Federal Customs Service of Russia Vladimir Bulavin took part in the opening ceremony of the 18th international exhibition “Customs Service 2017”.

The exposition occupies an area of more than one and a half thousand of square meters and introduces newest technology for customs procedures. The main cultural event of the exhibition’s first day was the handing over of 11 icons, seized during an attempt to illegally transport them out of Russia, to the Russian Orthodox Church.

Nine icons created in XIX-XX centuries were seized from citizens of Germany and Switzerland. They portray ancient concepts “The Miracle of St. George and the Dragon”, “Don’t Cry for Me, Mother”, the icons of the Holy Mother: “Joy of All Who Sorrow”, “Our Lady of the Sign”, “Unexpected Joy” and others. The cultural value of the icons was established by expert review at the The Central Andrey Rublev Museum of Ancient Russian Culture and Art.

The Russian Orthodox icons hold a leading place among the valuable cultural artefacts that most often suffer attempts of illegal transport from Russia. These ancient concepts attract strong interest from gallery owners and private collectors in the West. There are three specialized museums and more than a thousand of private collectors of Russian icons only in Germany. However Russian customs is closely watching over the border and, as a result, the attempts to illegally transport church antiquities are regularly stopped.

The Forum Attracts over Forty Participants. Belarus was represented at the united booth of the Eurasian Economic Union. The Customs Service of our country has presented the electronic customs, a single window system for various foreign trade activity and our main achievement – the technology for automatic release of goods. This year, more than 60 thousand of customs declaration forms have been processed automatically.

Dmitry Radivonchik, the head of the Central Department of Customs Control of the Customs Committee of Belarus: “This is a contactless technology that uses an information system to make decisions on the release of goods. This technology has a lot of potential. It is one of the elements for assistance and speeding up of procedures for business without any formality. On the other hand, it helps us carry out the required customs operations effectively and competently and efficiently cooperate with customs services at the EAEU level”. Today, the Customs Committee of Belarus is holding the last discussions with the business community and promises to take into account all wishes even before the end of the year.”

The FCS of Russia and the Russian Post implemented a remote customs control technology

On the 26th of October, at the Russian Post booth at the International Exhibition “Customs Service – 2017”, the First Deputy Head of FCS of Russia Ruslan Davydov and Deputy CEO of the Russian Post for Logistics, Alexey Skatin, have launched the technology for remote customs control of international postal items crossing the customs border of the Russian Federation.


Ruslan Davydov, the First Deputy Head of FCS of Russia, noted that this was one more important step to full automation of cooperation between the Russian Post and the FCS of Russia. “We all know how quickly the volumes of international of mail traffic grow, including those related to online shopping. The modern information technology helps us successfully process these volumes. The robotization and automatization of this process are helping take our cooperation to the next level”.


“The Russian Post together with the FCS of Russia are the first to have implemented the technology for remote inspection of international postal items and to make decisions on clearance of goods at remote work stations of the customs bodies. The implementation of this technology allows to increase speed of processing these mailings, to minimize the effect of human factor on the validity of information that is input into the database and to increase the safety of transfer”, — notes Alexey Skatin.

During the first stage, the technology for customs inspectors to work at remote work stations will be implemented for imported shipments of goods and products at the Vnukovo logistics center which is the largest postal hub in Eastern Europe.

There are 12 lines for customs control of registered small packages with 48 operator stations and 4 lines for customs control of registered packages with 16 operator stations at the production floor of the Vnukovo logistics center.

Before this technology was implemented, the operator responsible for processing postal items had to enter main information about the sender, the recipient, the cost, the weight and the description of goods or products shipped during the initial processing of mail coming into the country. The operator weighed the small package or parcel and would transfer it to the customs inspector for control. The work place of the customs inspector was located at the production floor in direct proximity to the X-ray equipment. Whenever suspicion arose about the forbidden contents of a package, the information provided about it or any need to follow bans or restrictions, the processing of small postal items would stop for customs control and subsequent execution of required customs documents (for instance, a certificate of customs inspection, a customs notification, a customs receipt voucher etc.) which would take up a lot of time both on the customs operator’s and the mail processing operator’s part.

Since the perspective technology for processing international postal items was implemented, the customs control process was practically fully automated, and the productivity increased by the factor of two. The operator only needs to put the package on the scale and the camera installed above it photographs the cover surface where the address label is located. After that, the package/parcel is sent to the conveyer belt. The optical character recognition (OCR) system decodes the information on the cover. If any difficulties arise during the recognition of the required information (the registration number of the item, full name of the recipient, the address, the contact telephone number, the weight and cost of the package), the image is sent to the video coding center. The operator compares the decoded information with the image on the cover and enters the required additional data. There are 30 seconds allocated for the whole process in the technological chain.


Before the X-ray equipment, there is one more camera installed which compares the completeness of information about the item present in the database and makes the decision on whether it should be sent for customs control. If some information is lacking in the database, the package is sent for reprocessing.

Whenever an item passes through the X-ray machine, there are two shots made: one in horizontal projection and one in vertical projection. They are passed to the computer of a customs body employee, whose work place is located outside the production floor, via encoded channels. If the package is cleared by the customs, it is transferred to a neighboring production floor to a sorting machine by a conveyer belt, if not, it is sent to a customs inspector for manual inspection.

During the second stage, the remote control technology will be implemented at the Vnukovo logistics center for exported packages.

The technology of remote customs control will be implemented at the logistics center in Kazan and during the equipment of international postal traffic exchange spaces in Rostov-on-Don and Novosibirsk.
