Hi-G-Tek & Magnate Implement Electronic Cargo Monitoring System
Hi-G-Tek, Inc. a leading global provider of wireless monitoring and tracking solutions that deliver real time location, security, and condition information about cargo and assets, and Magnate Technology and Services, Ltd., an industry leader in security solutions, have completed the implementation of Ghana's Customs Trade Lane System (GCeTrak). All bonded cargo arriving at Ghana's ports will be electronically sealed and monitored with Hi-G-Locksto ensure proper transport to its destination as well as its bonded sites. The ports, which handle over 550,000 TEUs of containerized cargo annually, are the most important entry point for transit goods destined for the landlocked countries of Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger.
Driven by the need of the Ghana Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) to better enforce compliance with trade regulations and address the problems in their suspense regimes, the GCeTrak will enhance the country's overall trade lane capabilities by automating internal processes and improving operating efficiencies. Cargo transporters will benefit from faster customs clearance procedures such as the elimination of physical escort for bonded cargo transiting through Ghana. Furthermore, all bonded facilities will be electronically sealed and monitored with Hi-G-Locks.
"Customs' authorities in many parts of the world are challenged by the need to enhance the competitiveness of their respective ports of entry, while grappling with the tactical problems of cargo theft, revenue collection, and regulatory compliance," said Don deLaski, CEO of Hi-G-Tek, Inc. "Hi-G-Tek's best in class Cargo Tracking and Monitoring System (CTMS) and unique insights into the challenges faced by customs authorities worldwide will be instrumental in enhancing Ghana's trade lanes competitiveness. We are pleased to work with our in-country partner Magnate Technology and Services, Ltd., to provide the most optimal solution for the Ghana Customs, Excise and Preventive Service."
