It is safe to say that during this time a huge amount of work has been done to establish and develop the service. 8 customs, the State Institute for Advanced Studies and Retraining of Personnel of the Customs Authorities of the Republic of Belarus. In total, there are 98 VET in the system, of which 68 are republican and 35 are departmental.
This service cannot be imagined without modern working conditions. Therefore, the transport and logistics center “Bobruisk-Beltamozhservice” is located in our city. This is no coincidence, because the city is crossed by the European railway Gomel – Minsk – Vilnius, a branch of the Pan-European transport corridor IX Kaliningrad – Vilnius – Minsk – Kiev – Odessa, and the TLC is located on the international highway M5. The center is multimodal, which allows the circulation of goods, various types of transport.
The customs authorities are constantly working to reduce the time for the release of goods, equalize the load between the points of customs clearance of the Republic of Belarus. With the development of electronic technologies, it has become possible to solve these problems through the implementation of a global project carried out by the Customs Committee of the Republic of Belarus – an electronic declaration center. Mogilev Customs has been taking part in this large republican pilot project from October 12, 2020. PTO “Bobruisk-Beltamozhservice” took part in it among the first in the country. The essence of the project is that separate declarations for goods submitted from the placement of goods under customs clearance for internal use are sent to customs clearance points, technologies for remote release of goods and a mechanism for automatic distribution of customs documents both between customs clearance points and and between authorized persons performing customs operations within the same customs control. Automatic “selection” of the PTO is carried out taking into account the analysis of the loaded persons of the customs authorities at the time of filing such a declaration for goods. In this case, the physical control of goods, if necessary, is carried out in customs clearance, in which the declared goods are located. As part of the project for 2021, Bobruisk TP produced more than 33 thousand batches of goods, which is 25.5% more compared to the same period in 2020.
