TRA Introduces new Cargo Tracking System.

13 Mar

The Tanzania Revenue Authority has introduced a new system to track down shipments. The new Electronic Cargo Tracking System (ECTS) started yesterday 12th March,2012 with the intention to monitor the movement of goods under Customs control.

ECTS enables the tracking of a vehicle with goods from one point to another within Tanzania, though the coverage may be expanded in future if need arises. The following are some of the benefits of ECTS:-

1. To identify illegal diversion of goods which are under Customs control

2. Improved government revenue

3. Improved transit times

4. Real-time consignment tracking as opposed to manual tracking

5. Transparency

6. Uninterrupted movement of goods

7. Quick security bond cancellation

8. Increases truck turnaround time
