The consortium, whose participants include NTT Data Corp., Mitsubishi Corp. and Nippon Express Co., will conduct a test of the platform this year in Vietnam, the chairman of the ASEAN for 2020 the sources said.
By eliminating the massive exchanges of paper between parties involved in trade activities, the platform is expected to significantly reduce the costs and time required for customs documentation work.

The development of the platform comes as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry finances the creation of new businesses through projects of digitization in Asian countries.
