The Activ app makes it easier for drivers of freight forwarding and transport companies who make regular transit journeys through Switzerland to cross the border.

As soon as drivers approach a border crossing, the customs declaration for the goods entered in Activ is sent. This enables faster border crossings and also eases the burden on the infrastructure of The Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS). The App does not change the opening hours and authorization of the Customs offices.

The example of Customs South: from 30 minutes to 5 seconds

Since October 2022, border crossing times at Stabio and Chiasso have been greatly shortened for commercial goods. The paper routing slip, which each lorry driver had to fill in by hand on site, was abolished. Thanks to the Activ application, fast lanes are used to cross the border and there is no need for lorries to stop. More information
