Keeping track of your own goods can be a complicated process. Keeping track of the world’s goods as they cross your borders is an entirely different ball game.

Seluxit CEO, Daniel Lux, will be showcasing Seluxit’s Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon this week at the L’ODASCE Colloque Douanier Européen. The ODASCE European Customs Symposium is the meeting place for customs professionals and this year the buzzing topic is traceability.

At container terminals, these beacon systems can significantly reduce down time. Combined with blockchain technology, they can also control the flow of goods both crossing borders and in transit by facilitating risk-based controls. This both improves compliance and trade facilitation between state authorities and trustworthy economic operators.
