KARACHI: The Directorate of Reforms and Automation has planned to turn all 60 modules of WeBOC (Web Based One Customs) on the design specifications provided by the directorate, operational from June next year.
The installation of WeBOCs, which can be easily modified to shape up and provide more effective customs control and better trade facilitation, would launch a new era for the Pakistan Customs processes.
At present, the sources said that 60 to70 per cent of the total modules were already operational or in the process of repair while the remaining half of them are in development phase.
They said that the real time automation solution will be the first of its kind for Customs anywhere across the world, will be implemented at all the Customs stations across Pakistan.
“The complete automation of Pakistan Customs would help speed up Customs clearance at sea, land and air stations. It will also save the traders from paying fines due to delay at examination,” sources added.
