B. Lessons Learned
To exchange the status of export or import cargo (or container) at the port and customs area among the paperless trade service providers so that traders or logistics service providers can trace the movement of cargo by container number or Bill of Lading number.
The scope of the project was to develop a technical specification for utilization of domestic cargo tracing data contained in the customs system or port system and interoperable system that can exchange the cargo status data with overseas partners.
The use of data contained in the government systems was favored by private sector for its accuracy and reliability compared to the data provided by service providers as there is a potential fraud of time information.
The manufacturers and traders were able to capture the cargo tracing data into their supply chain management system, promptly and with higher data quality, which in the past required manual input of cargo status information collected manually from logistics service providers such as carriers and freight forwarders.
