The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) launched an online application platform to schedule cargo examination for traders at the Tughlakabad inland container depot in Delhi to improve logistics efficiency.

The online platform will be available on all days. The depot will also have a new baggage scanner for non-intrusive examination unaccompanied baggage or palletized import cargo.

“It is multi-stakeholder application where customs, CONCOR, customs brokers and importers are on the same platform having a shared view of scheduling examination of goods. This initiative will ensure fullest transparency alongside of convenience for trade and other stakeholder,” the finance ministry said in a statement Thursday.

The new baggage scanner will help customs in targeted intervention to check smuggling.
