One year since the execution of the Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS), the Importers and Exporters Association of Ghana says it has encountered huge improvement in its exchanges at the ports.

There were disturbances when it was at first presented, as certain partners had worried over the framework, yet it seems the residue has at long last settled.

In a meeting with Citi Business News, Samson Asaki Awingobit, the Executive Secretary of the Importers and Exporters Association of Ghana demonstrated that the framework has essentially upgraded business at the ports.

“They have had the option to improve exchange help, leeway measures, a decrease of time, and cost of working together at our ports. Something interesting about them is that when they are going to support their framework, ICUMS will simply educate everyone in the business.”

“At that point, ICUMS will hit us up to advise us that the support is finished and if genuinely you proceed to check, you will understand that it is genuine they have really played out their undertaking and the assistance is back and working.”

He further complimented the supervisors of the ICUMS and encouraged them to proceed with their great work up until now.

ICUMS was sent on June 1, 2020, and as of now covers 135 Customs operational focuses the nation over.

It supplanted the then Ghana Customs Management System under GCNet and West Blue.

The presentation of the framework was met with solid resistance by certain partners, who had difficulties with working the framework and called for it to be rejected.
