CUSTOMS & EXCISE DEPARTMENTS

Today, with an increase in illicit trade and global insurgency, there is an urgent need to explore strategic innovative solutions to ensure that customs administrations have all the necessary modern equipment and technology required to address the present day’s challenge successfully. However, the capital outlay is enormous, especially the procurement installation, maintenance, regular upgrade, training of personnel etc. 

Customs Administrations are the major source of service revenue for most nations, yet this global gateway records huge losses and lapses due to the lack of modern equipment to deal with trends in the industry. 

A BOT/BMT partnership with a firm like Eden & Mcwhit Global Services  would be the best option for customs administrations in emerging economies.

Eden & Mcwhit Global Services offers clients a variety of products and solutions for the screening, security, inspection and monitoring services. This is with modern customs reforms, as recommended by the relevant international agencies for control of narcotics etc.

The procurement, installation, maintenance, upgrades and replacements (if need be) of all equipment required shall be funded by Eden & Mcwhit’s consortium, associates and investors on a BOT/BMT basis throughout the tenure of the partnership. We will also bear the cost of training local personnel.

Eden & Mcwhit works strictly in line with the recommendations of the World Customs Organisation, whilst ensuring that the client’s customs administration is able to generate a substantial increase in revenue through operators & stakeholders.

We are currently implementing this in 40 countries worldwide successfully.

The World Customs Organisation plays a leading role in the implementation of modern customs system and procedures. Its instruments and ‘best practice’ approach are recognised as the basis for sand customs administration throughout the world.

Their primary objective is to enhance the efficiency and  effectiveness of customs administration, thereby assisting them to contribute successfully to national development goals, (particularly revenue generation and collection, national security, trade facilitation, community protection, and collecting trade statistics, drugs enforcement, illegal weapons trading and sustainable capacity building) to assist with custom reforms and modernisation.

CONTAINER TRACKING & ANALYTICS (INTEGRATED WITH Custom & Excise Department/Border SECURITY CONTROL & COMMAND CENTRE

  1. Software and analytics can be provided in modules as stand-alone systems, or integrated into a national information sharing & intelligence platform.
  2. Analytics work primarily with country’s own national cargo data to provide real-time risk assessments and target suspicious containers
  3. In addition, analysts can access a database of cargo container movements (with over 500 million global records) which is updated daily.
  4. Analysts are provided with the ability to establish normalcy for historical trading relationships, commodities and routeings, making it easier to uncover anomalies for suspect cargo approaching their borders.
  5. Analysts can easily create their own risk profiles to automatically run against all available data.
  6. Subsequent results from x-ray scans and physical inspections, (especially in the case of false positives) can be fed back to the analyst for updating profiles.
  7. Analytics help assesses risk on cargo require timely data from all available sources, data such as from Maersk, COSCO and Evergreen and declaration data from customs back-office systems (such as ASYCUDA, TRIPS, CASE or SIGA). Typically this data needs to be refreshed daily.

Today, the Nigerian Government is relying totally on the physical inspection of containers without any electronic devices. This allows for an inadequate level of security to combat modern day threats.

We, therefore, offer these products & solutions.
