KARACHI: Afghan Transit Trade including other vehicle carrying different goods items have started entering Pakistan territory very slowly after a weeklong halt.
Talking to Customs Today, the Chairman of Afghan Transit Trade Standing Committee on FPCCI Engineer Daroo Khan confirmed that transit trade vehicles have started entering the Pakistani territory after getting weighing at the three Kanta.
According to the details, long queues of the Pakistan Afghanistan Transit Trade (PATT) vehicles carrying containers of different items were gathered at the Pak Afghan check post Chaman due to a dispute over computerized weighing system.
The sources have informed Customs Today that one of the computerized weighing system situated at 3 kilometer far from the Chaman check post increased the fare for weighing the container vehicles just for nothing.

He also appreciated the efforts of the Directorate of the Pak Afghan Transit Trade as well as the Customs Collectorate of Chaman for playing a vital role in resolving the issues and reactivating the halted transit trade that was causing loss to the country as the imported goods laden on the vehicles were getting rotten.
