I go along with MatsWiman. His answer, the second one, is concise to the point and very clear. The first answer is not wrong, but MatsWiman very rightly points out that "douane" is used loosley and very commonly to refer to the duty itself and not just the customs officers, the place, etc.
(Not enough space to add this as a note!)
