Providing the seamless link between a declarant’s commercial product description and all Customs and Other Government Department requirements.

Electronic Single Windows (ESW) and Trade Hubs have become a valuable tool in the effort to balance the often competing forces of regulatory enforcement and trade facilitation. ESWs have been created in order to provide traders a single repository for difficult-to-find trade compliance information, and allow them to fulfill all cross-border requirements through a single electronic submission to customs and regulatory agencies.

The key measure of a Single Window or Trade Hub’s usefulness is how easily traders are able to find relevant regulatory information about their imports, and the first step in getting this critical information is determining a product’s proper Harmonized System (HS) commodity code.

3CE’s ESW solutions address the problem of ineffective search, which is a common deficiency in many single windows and trade hubs. Our tools have been designed with the understanding that traders do not want to read through endless lists of mostly irrelevant, often erroneous, “potential” matches. They need a single, correct answer immediately.

Our innovative tools deliver on the Single Window’s promise of facilitated trade by providing traders the ability to submit an everyday commercial description of their product and instantly see everything they need to know about its importation or exportation.
