Customs and Borders agencies face extremely tough challenges

They are responsible for enforcing compliance, collecting revenue, and ensuring security, but also for facilitating trade and keeping goods moving as quickly as possible.

The benefits of using CDI for Customs and Border agencies

Increase risk scoring model accuracy

Our Entity Resolution enables more accurate identification of individuals and organizations, and of relationships. That means more accurate scoring of risks and threats.

Identify prior violators
Find hidden links in declaration data with past violators, shell companies, and with other risks and threats.

Automate more decisions

With the Quantexa platform’s AI, your teams can automate more decisions and escalate fewer cases for manual review.

Reduce port of entry delays

More automated decisions mean shorter wait times for shipments and travelers.

Identify VAT carousel fraud cases faster

Fraudsters in these cases rely on being able to get the money and disappear faster than your teams can find them. Break that cycle with faster detection.
