Outgrow paper, GACAG tells WCO members

October 16 - Members of the World Customs Organization (WCO) should embrace and implement the principles of the Revised Kyoto Convention and shift from a dependency on paper documents to a full e-Customs environment, says the Global Air Cargo Advisory Gro

In a new position paper, GACAG said harmonisation of global customs procedures will play a pivotal role in establishing e-Customs platforms and has pledged the support of the entire air cargo industry in this effort.

Michael Steen, chair of GACAG, said: "Air cargo already transports goods worth in excess of USD5 trillion, representing roughly one-third of global international trade."

He went on:"Specifically, GACAG urges WCO members to embrace and implement the principles of the Revised Kyoto Convention and to shift from a dependency on paper to an e-Customs environment, which will stimulate economic development, remove inefficiencies, and lead to much-needed productivity gains."
