Classify is an automated Harmonized System (HS) code classification tool that uses the power of AI to provide accurate and efficient results. It is powered by a state-of-the-art multimodal AI system that uses advanced algorithms and statistical models to constantly learn and improve over time.
With the integration of billions of training records, a proprietary cutting-edge multimodal AI system, and architectural improvements for hyper-fast organization-specific refinement, Classify is designed to quickly provide accurate results.
Classify's AI is based on a generative pre-trained language model that uses deep learning to produce text similar to that written by humans. Classify uses this respective machine learning model coupled with a Zonos fine-tuned model, which includes over half a million manually classified labels, resulting in accuracy rates in the low to mid-90th percentile after manually classifying and learning from a subset of organization data during the onboarding process.
This approach allows Classify to deliver high caliber results, ensuring you confidence in its results to generate accurate landed cost calculations, stay compliant, and ensure smooth customs clearances.
Classify’s robust technology uses the following artificial intelligence (AI) and human expertise capabilities while following the WCO’s general rules of interpretation to generate HS codes:
Classify uses the World Customs Organization (WCO) Harmonized Schedule (HS) codes and tariff schedule descriptions to match product input fields with HS codes.
Depending on whether or not a destination country is provided, Classify will return a universal or country-specific HS code and schedule descriptions for each HS code level. For example, if you request a country-specific HS code, Classify will return the WCO tariff schedule description for the chapter, heading, subheading, and tariff level codes.
Here's an example of a schedule description for Taiwan HS code 9503.00.31007:
|Chapter||95||Toys, sports equipment, carnival equipment, and video game consoles|
|Heading||9503||Wheeled toys (scooters, pedal cars, doll carriages) as well as puzzles of all kinds|
|Subheading||9503.00||Wheeled toys (scooters, pedal cars, doll carriages) as well as puzzles of all kinds|
|Tariff||9503.00.31007||Toy electric trains: toy electric trains|
Classify currently only supports country import codes and does not support export codes such as the United States Census Bureau's Schedule B codes.
The WCO descriptions outlined above can oftentimes be wordy, technical, and even misleading. For example, the WCO schedule description for chapter 84 is "Nuclear reactors, boilers, machinery and mechanical appliances; parts thereof" whereas the Zonos cleansed display name for this chapter is simplified and clarified to "Tools, machinery, computers, and data processing units".
To make it easier for Classify users to understand and utilize HS code descriptions, Zonos has manually added cleansed display names, which are provided in your Classify response depending on your Classify tier.
These display names are a more simplified and user-friendly option to the standard WCO tariff schedule descriptions. They are designed to be easier to read and understand, making them a valuable tool for businesses that utilize HS code descriptions regularly.
Display names are included in all Classify responses, Dashboard or API, for Classify Advanced and Premium users.
