Sharjah Seaports & Customs has stepped up its digital efforts to expand the range of electronic supply chain services it offers to customers. The new innovative online system, that provides real-time access to traditional declaration processing to facilitate procedures through Sharjah Customs from Port Khalid, Sharjah ICD (Inland Container Depot) and Khor Fakkan Port.
Currently the platform is only open to 3 companies with Choitram , Yousuf Ali Motors and Al Sharqi being among the three to test out the services and provide valuable inputs which will contribute positively to the efforts to fine tune the existing system and add new features to enhance the user experience of the portal.
We appreciate the opportunity to be chosen as one of the few companies to be a part of the test group said Atif Rafiq, Director Al Sharqi, this is a good initiative from the Government of Sharjah to digitalise their offering in Seaports & Customs and eliminate paperwork.
This would really enhance our customer experience and help us with our digital efforts to drive a more differentiated offering in Shipping and Logistics to its current customers and extend that to the import and export community in the Northern Emirates (Sharjah, Ajman, RAK, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah) for whom speed and time is of essence.
