Algiers, Algeria (PortSEurope) June 20, 2018 – A new system for the transfer of containers from the port of Algiers to dry ports has been put in place by the General Directorate of Customs (DGD). The new system, instituted last May, aims mainly at securing the foreign trade logistics chain, improving the efficiency of the fight against fraud and ensuring greater transparency in management. To
ensure a “permanent and rigorous monitoring” of the operation of this system, a central unit was installed at the port of Algiers to address the concerns of the operators concerned and to take charge of the malfunctions that may arise. However, following the request of certain players in the foreign trade logistics chain, it has been decided, exceptionally, that the transfer to the dry port of containers containing “dangerous goods, refrigerated containers and group goods”, be made according to the choice of the consignee of the ship. According to the DGD, this new device does not affect either the quality of the service rendered to the operators, nor the delays in the clearance of the goods and does not compromise the rapid processing of the flows in accordance with the regulations in force. The customs institution shall also inform authorized economic operators that they will be able to clear their goods without transferring them to dry ports. This facilitation is currently being considered for feasibility in the Customs Information System. Source: Algerie Presse Service Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2018.
