KARACHI: Pakistan Customs is going to install RFID readers on Bulaili, Khairabad and Kohat tunnels to enhance the security of the containers.
Sources in Pakistan Customs informed Customs Today that the Directorate of Transit Trade has written a letter to Chairman Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) in this regard. They further said that the RFID readers would also be installed on the way to Chaman and Torkhum.
“The proposal will be finalised in the current month of October and the work of installation of RFID will be started soon”, sources added.
They further said that electronic scanners would also be installed at every check-post from Karachi to Quetta. “Those scanners would be electronically integrated with each other and show accurate reading of every container”, sources added.
Senior customs officials said that enforcement and security of the containers on transit trade routes would definitely be improved by installation of RFID and electronic scanners.
