We are happy to announce that PLANET and Lyngsoe Systems offer a joint solution to help postal operators make the front-end registration highly automated to prepare for a wave of new EU regulations coming into force over the coming months. Among them are the implementation of ICS2 (Import Control System 2), requiring entry summary declarations on all consignments entering the EU, and launching the EU VAT modernization package planned for July 1’st, 2021.
Lyngsoe Systems is offering PLANET OCR scanning solution to complement its own Manual Image Capture Station (MICS), which provides postal operators with a scalable solution for optimizing import, customs, and VAT collection.
MICS eliminates bottlenecks by separating data entry from the physical handling of items, automates data capturing and registration, raises throughput utilizing existing floor space more effectively, and lowers the overall cycle time of import and clearance.
The Planet ArgusAddress Professional OCR software with ITR-technology (Intelligent Text Reader) reads and identifies the information contained in each shipping label of every consignment that is processed. The reading result is checked against the provided Customer Address Database to match towards a known address, and also, custom data like, e.g., the content of the shipment, weight, and value will be identified from the CN22 label and made available for customs clearance and passed on for automatic sortation if required.
The ITR-technology directs an array of recognition processes at each image to respond dynamically to the wide range of address locations, print sizes, fonts, and print resolutions that cause problems for standard OCR readers.
ArgusAddress Professional AI-based approach to the Identify, Segment, and Resolve process of reading mail pieces make this possible. ArgusAddress Professional can perform this process multiple times on a single mail piece allowing significantly higher read rates.
