    ASYCUDA SINGLE WINDOW - CONCLUSIONS Window

    «The most recent Web-based version of ASYCUDA will allow Customs administrators and traders to handle most of their transactions via the Internet. The new e-Customs platform, dubbed AsycudaWorld, will be particularly useful to developing countries, where poor fixed-line telecommunications are a major problem for e-government applications. It is also powerful enough to accommodate the operational and managerial needs of Customs operations in any developed country as well.»
