From Invoices, Packing Lists, Delivery Notes

The process of creating export declarations can often be an arduous and time-consuming task for businesses, particularly when dealing with high volumes of documents such as invoices, packing lists, and delivery notes. Digicust's product, Dexter IDP, offers an innovative solution by automating the entire process using advanced intelligent document processing techniques. This article will provide a technical breakdown of how Digicust streamlines export declarations.


Let's walk through the process of automating export declarations step-by-step.

  1. Receipt of Documents: Businesses forward their PDF documents, including invoices, packing lists, and delivery notes, to the Digicust platform. These documents can contain vital information such as the description of goods, quantities, packaging details, delivery addresses, and more.

  2. Intelligent Document Processing (IDP): Dexter IDP steps in at this stage. It begins by reading and comprehending all the information contained in the various documents. The system employs advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to extract all the necessary data for the export declaration.

  3. Use of Master Data: If the client possesses master data, Digicust incorporates this into the process. Master data, a consolidated resource for business-critical information, significantly speeds up the process of export declarations.

  4. Tariff Classification: In cases where the master data is not readily available, Digicust makes use of the Taric system, its automated tariff classifier. It processes the descriptions of the products in the documents to assign the correct tariff numbers, ensuring accuracy in the classification process.

  5. Creation of Export Declaration: Once the data extraction and tariff classification are complete, Digicust proceeds to generate the export declaration. Its no-code automation platform enables businesses to create custom rules that cater to their specific requirements, adding a layer of customization to the automated process.

  6. Delivery: Upon the successful generation of the export declaration, Digicust sends the declaration to the client's end system. The system is designed for easy integration, ensuring a seamless transfer of data.


Digicust's automation of export declarations simplifies what is traditionally a complex and time-consuming process. By leveraging intelligent document processing, master data modules, and automated tariff classification, Digicust helps businesses increase their efficiency, reduce potential errors, and save valuable resources.

By transforming raw data into actionable insights, Digicust is redefining the landscape of customs clearance and helping businesses navigate the challenges of export declarations in the digital age.
