Our Development Expertise


Toriff is one of the products that is freely available online (with limited features) and has been developed by our team of professionals who are highly-experienced in the field of customs brokerage and HS codes.

Toriff is the end-product of extensive research into HS codes, and the obstructions faced by the customs brokerage industry. Our product contains artificial intelligence and smart dictionary feature that allows clients to input common everyday language, and link it to the actual term used in the HS codes, thereby acting as a bridge between the vast database of HS code terminology and the common office vocabulary. Further, Toriff is available for licensing and has its own API that makes it extremely convenient to be integrated to any existing or new software.
