What is an ATLAS?

An ATLAS stands for Automated Tariff and Local Customs Processing System. It is a software used by the German customs authority for processing and monitoring of cross-border goods traffic.

The ATLAS is used as a medium of communication between the customs offices and the economic operator. This means the economic operator has the possibility to submit entry and exit declarations, presentation notifications, summary declarations of deposit and customs declarations for the transfer of goods.
