Private clearances passenger baggage
Private Clearances (Passenger Baggage):

Asycuda++ was customised to facilitate clearance for passenger baggage and informal traders goods. A few fields are captured into the system.

  • Enables faster calculation of duties payable by ordinary passengers or the informal traders.

  • Assists in data transfer and interfacing with other applications (like SAP and CSO).

Transit focus
Transit Focus

  • As landlocked country handle transit for countries north of us namely Zambia, Malawi, DRC to mention but a few of the transit handled.

  • Before the implementation of the transit module in Asycuda a manual system was in place. Transit documents moved physically from one station to the other. An over night facility operated by Allen Wack &Shepherd was frequently used or alternatively handed over documents to the transporter who was obliged to hand them over at the Destination office where acquittals were supposed to be carried out.

  • To date transit information is electronically transmitted through gates as provided in the Asycuda ++ Transit Module. This has improved the leakages noticed by the system.

  • 15 Stations to date linked. Those not linked it is because they do not handle transits. Currently working on legal aspects of defining transit routes.

Asycuda world preparedness
Asycuda World Preparedness

  • As a prerequisite for Asycuda World System Upgrades to V1.18d are in progress. To date 10 Ports have been upgraded with the remainder being completed by 30 November 2006

  • Asycuda World implementations will open doors of trade facilitation through allowing flexible technologies for clients access.
