Manila, Philippines – Sinabing epektibo ang Electronic Tracking of Containerized Cargoes (E-TRACC) system laban sa smuggling, batay sa Bureau of Customs (BOC).
“The rollout of the E-TRACC on 1 June 2020 in various ports nationwide allowed the Bureau to remotely track, monitor, and audit the inland movement of containerized cargoes,” saad ng pamunuan.
Kasama na rito ang cargoes na papunta o in transit sa customs bonded warehouses, freeport at economic zones, export, maging ang mga nakatakdang inspeksyunin tulad ng meat, aquatic at agricultural shipments.
“To date, the system has recorded numerous violations such as 699 corridor alerts (deviation from registered routes), 32 security alerts, 18 unauthorized departures, and 84 unauthorized end trips. Corresponding penalties were charged against the violators,” lahad ng BOC.
“Through E-TRACC, manual procedure and underguarding of containers in transit were streamlined, thereby saving personnel complement and reducing bureaucratic process.”
Kasalukuyang ipinapatupad na ang E-TRACC sa Port of Manila, Manila International Container Port, Port of Batangas, Port of Subic, Port of Cebu, Port of Davao, at Port of Cagayan De Oro. RNT/FGDC
