The revolutionary Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) world system is currently under review as the innovative automated system went live on Monday.
Speaking on the development, the Comptroller of Customs Raju Boddu notes that now that the system has been implemented the next step is for the division to carry out an audit.
According to Boddu, compared to the old system, ASYCUDA is expected to not only cut the operating cost of the division but also enhance productivity in its entirety.
The Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) will allow the Customs Division, trade operators and other government agencies to handle most of their transactions — from Customs declarations to cargo manifests, transit documents, as well as certifications, licenses and authorizations given by other government agencies, via the internet.
The complete launch of the programme is expected to take place on February 3rd, 2017.
