Use Case DAHER | Blockchain and traceability for customs compliance

Updated: Mar 9

REPLAY VIDEO | During the Supply Chain Event 2021, Charlotte Turrel, Group Customs Manager and Gabriel Raffour, Head of DaherLab talked about the use, implementation and value of the Tilkal solution for the group. Focus on an ambitious and innovative initiative with an immediate ROI.


Blockchain is already making its mark in the food industry and in the FMCG sector, especially when its comes to promoting transparency towards the consumer*.


However, at Tilkal, we see other use cases opening up new perspectives for many sectors and making blockchain-based traceability a lever for economic and regulatory performance.


The driver: European customs regimes (as well as other regulations such as the Duty of Vigilance, Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, etc.) are evolving towards greater accountability and transparency obligations for manufacturers and brands which require new/reinforced self-assessment procedures.


How we can help: Daher is using the Tilkal platform to achieve near-real-time and automated traceability of imports and transformations of raw materials, and to ensure compliance with the obligations of the Inward Processing procedure, a highly advantageous EU customs regime for imports.

Simply put, the solution enables collection of relevant data from the various supply chain stakeholders, eliminates tedious, time-consuming, error-prone manual tasks, and creates a transparent and accountable view of the lifecycle of imported materials. The resulting view is then used to report to Customs in order to secure eligibility for import duty waivers.


"We went from 6-7% customs duty on the value of our raw material merchandise to 0, immediately."
