First rake to Nepal with ECTS seal flagged off from Visakha Container Terminal

Visakhapatnam Customs has recently implemented the Electronic Cargo Tracking System (ECTS) on Nepal-bound containers via Visakha Container Terminal (VCT). Under this modality, import containers bound for Nepal will be affixed with an ECTS seal as against the conventional One Time Bottle (OTB) seal which is fixed now.

The new procedure is very much simplified as against the long processes of documentation which is currently followed, that results in the delay of moving the containers from the terminal.

With this new process, Container Trans-shipment Approval Order will be generated in the ICES system similar to the Trans-shipment Permits issued to other ICDs making it a paperless documentation.

The first rake to ICD Birgunj, Nepal with containers fixed having ECTS was flagged-off in the early hours on 28th August 2018 in the terminal jointly by Dr. D.K. Srinivas (Commissioner of Customs), Mr. Mukul Saran Mathur (Divisional Railway Manager) and Mr. Haranadh (Deputy Chairman, VPT).
