EU leader for exports

Germany is EU’s most powerful economy and world leader in exporting automobile, automotive parts/accessories, medicines, blood fractions including antisera, along with aircraft & spacecraft. Its 2020 exports amounted to US$1.378 trillion worth of goods around the globe, which translates to roughly $16,600 for every EU resident.

If one were to imagine an export process for all these high-value products with hiccups due to improper paperwork and export declarations! It will be fatal during these pandemic times or any global disruption for that matter. Yet in such unprecedented times, Germany has been able to clock colossal exports worth US$1.4 trillion! This is because the business there are backed by a robust and seamless export declaration automation in place.

For every exporter located in Germany, ATLAST is an electronic “gateway to the world.” ATLAS (Automatisiertes Tarif- und Lokales Zollabwicklungssystem) is the automated tariff and local customs clearance System used in Germany for the purpose of declaration of imports, exports, transits, special economic procedures, among others. It is an e-customs interface that facilitates for seamless declaration process.

Companies that use ATLAS can transmits their export declarations to Germany’s ATLAS e-customs system and have a direct interface for all incoming messages – releases, endorsements of exit, orders for a customs examination, etc. Using ATLAST, paperwork such as the export accompanying document (EAD) can easily be printed out from the export transaction or forwarded by email. In addition all these are certified by the German customs authorities.
