NSC moves to tackle under-declaration of imported goods
The Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) is planning to tackle the challenges of under-declaration of goods coming into the country through a security application called Cargo Tracking Note.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), NSC Executive Secretary, Mr. Hassan Bello, yesterday in Abuja said that the application had been included in the 2019 budget.
“The most important thing in the 2019 budget is the Cargo Tracking Note. It is what will allow Nigeria to know what comes in.
“It is a security app that will be a manifest that whatever comes into Nigeria is transmitted electronically even at the point of loading,” he said.
He, however, said that the council would strengthen its relationship with security agencies, especially the police, at the port.
