Automated cargo system to be used experimentally at Myawady border gate in 2017

The Myanmar Automated Cargo Clearance System (MACCS) will be experimentally practiced at the Myawady border gate next year, according to Myanmar Customs Department.

The experiment will be conducted as a survey in Myawady, said U Win Thant, the director of Myanmar Customs Department.
The development of an e-Customs system started in July 2013 with support from the Government of Japan with MACCS adopted at international ports, Yangon Airport International Cargo Terminal, and Thilawa Special Economic Zone on 12 November in a bid to facilitate trade.

It aims to facilitate trade by automating most of the manual processes at Yangon customs, including registration, payment of fees, and tax valuations. The goal is to have exporters, importers, customs officials, and other government agency representatives gain easy access to MACCS through the internet, saving time and lowering transportation costs, said a customs official.

Since MACCS is time saving, it is better that MACCS can be systematically adopted at all customs’ entry points across the nation, said a person engaged in customs service. Japan International Corporation Agency (JICA) provided over 3,990 yens for MACCS, plus technical assistance.
