KARACHI: The Pakistan Customs is not only offering the best real-time online goods declaration (GD) filing service, but is charging the lowest fee (Rs 250) in the region.
Sources told Customs Today that the average GD filing fee across the region is around $25 which is way high the fee charged for the similar service in Pakistan.
Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore charge a much higher GD filing fee compared to what an importer has to pay here in Pakistan, the sources added.
Not only the GD filing fee is the lowest compared to other countries
across the region, but the Directorate General of Reforms and Automation is in the advanced phase to test launch the IPad tracing and tracking application for Apple phone to facilitate importers and customs agents to trace and track the status of their imports from their cell phone. The app would be available from the Apple store.
