CGC Adewale Adeniyi

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says it is expediting implementation of its Electronic Cargo Tracking System (ECTS) to enhance its operations.

Its Comptroller-General, Mr Adewale Adeniyi, made this known via a statement by Abdullahi Maiwada, NCS National Public Relations Officer, on Saturday in Abuja.

The ECTS is a web-based solution used to provide real-time monitoring of transit cargo under customs control.

Adeniyi said that Information Communication Technology (ICT), would be used to harness the requisite internal resources to speed up the execution.

“It is imperative that we modernise every facet of the Customs Enforcement Ecosystem.

“We must also integrate technology to fortify our operations,” he said.

He reiterated the commitment of NCS in leveraging technology to streamline its operation and emphasised the importance of engaging stakeholders to ensure the seamless execution of the project.

“In 2024, we cannot afford to remain entrenched in outdated practices. Stakeholders are demanding a Customs Service that embraces technology to enhance efficiency and transparency,” he said.

The NCS recently organised a two-day ICT- Modernization Management Retreat in Abuja aimed at digitising customs operation.

The digitisation would be facilitated through the Trade Modernisation Project of the service, designed to enhance its trade facilitation operations.(NAN)
