Customs Dashboard

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) dashboard, launched amid ongoing reforms at the Bureau, features information never previously published with the goal of increasing transparency of trade and revenue collection activity. The data in this dashboard is from the improved BOC Electronic to Mobile (E2M) System, which gives the public easier access to BOC's services.

Use the filters to view trade activity in the BOC ports; reports on rice, motor vehicles, tobacco, plastic resin, and iron and steel imports and importers; top commodities imported in BOC ports; and, top BOC brokers and importers.
