The Nigeria Customs Service Tincan Island Port on Monday 20th September 2021, took delivery of two Nuctech mobile scanners, MT1213DE with accessories which had arrived on board Glovis Horizon Leader from the Port of Shanghai, China.
Speaking, the Customs Area Controller, Compt. Musa Abdullahi, while taking delivery of the consignment pointed out that “Integration of scanning into the Clearance Procedure for Imports is in line with Global Best Practice for Trade Facilitation.”
Musa noted that “the key objective of deploying scanners is to reduce very significantly the time needed for physical inspection of goods which generated extensive cost and creates multiple burdens and inconveniences for both the Importers and the Customs operations.
Showing delight on this development, the Customs Area Controller praised the present leadership of the Customs under the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) and his Management for working the talk on the procurement of scanners.
“Recall that the CGC on assumption had promised to Reform, Restructure and raise Revenue and these scanners will constantly enhance trade facilitation and consequently lead to increased revenue”.
that with the deployment of the scanners, there will be increased Cargo Handling for better efficiency in the Trade Value Chain.
