Careers and training

Thousands of tonnes of the most diverse goods cross the Swiss border every day - by road, rail, waterway, air or pipeline.

Two customs experts compare the documents with the goods containers.

Customs specialist

Customs experts are responsible for checking these flows of goods. They check whether the merchandise imported was declared correctly and determine the amount of customs duty and other taxes.
