 The NACCS (Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System) is a well-used system in Japan for among other things customs clearance. While it gives direct access to the service of the Japan Customs, many other agencies and ministries are less connected to NACCS. This means that some data has to be duplicated. Examples of these data are: trucking, warehousing, forwarding activities, airlines and shipping activities. There are still many legacy components.


  • NACCS should be more accessible for non-registered companies. This would also improve the compliance efforts of companies.
  • Japan should expand NACCS so that more data related to logistics can be included and accessed as well.
  • Expanding the number of entries that can be made on one declaration. The current 99 lines are too few.
