... de una mercancia ha salido canal rojo y la aduana ha pedido inspección". ... English USA. Es entendido por personas familiarizadas con el sistema de canales verde, naranja, y rojo establecido por la Comisión Europea.
− Green channel or “canal verde”: goods are cleared without any control;
− Orange channel or “canal naranja”: documents inspection;
− Red channel or “canal rojo”: physical and documents inspection.
The channels are attributed by the MARIA system according to different parameters
introduced in the system such as value, tariff position, origin, existence of import
measures (quotas, anti-dumping duties, etc) or randomly. The breakdown of imports per
customs channel is not available. However, according to the customs authorities met
during the investigation, 15% of the totality of 1999 imports into Argentina fell under the
“canal rojo” compared to 30% in 1997-1998.

I am not 100% sure whether it is referring to the "canal rojo" system without further context. What are your source and target countries? Passengers with goods to declare (carrying goods above the permitted customs limits and/or carrying prohibited items) go through the red channel.
