Nuctech's smart lockers that are installed on containers are input with detailed images and information of the goods in Chongqing, start of the rail route. They enable customs officials along the route to read the information in the locker instead of opening the whole container for a complete inspection.

With the help of the smart locking system independently innovated by Nuctech, the efficiency and quality of customs clearance can be greatly improved.


Nuctech's smart lockers are installed on containers with detailed images and information of the goods, enabling customs officials along the rail route to finish customs clearance with no need to open the whole container for a complete examination.

At present, Nuctech's smart locking system has been applied in Thailand and Armenia and has seen successful trials in a number of countries, including Kazakhstan, Myanmar, Slovakia and Peru. 

The system is of great value in development of a comprehensive logistic monitoring and inspection service and smart customs. It not only speeds up the clearance for the China-Europe freight train service but enhances interconnection of customs procedures between different countries.
