Sub: Public Notice 23/2022
This is to inform you that Sahar Air Cargo Customs (ACC) has issued Public Notice No. 23/2022 dated 26th June, 2022.
ACC has received several representations from the stakeholders highlighting the problems faced by the trade during peak hours. Thus, the data relating to hourly clearing of export cargo was gathered from EDI. It was found that period between 6 PM to 9 PM is the peak time.
It was observed that, about 3/4th of the cargo is cleared during 2 PM to 10 PM and about 8 hours witness no cargo clearance. The change of batch at 8 PM creates additional pressure on already overburdened officers and CHAs / Exporters due to peak workload. Therefore, after consultation with the trade, decisions have been by ACC in this regard.
For detailed information on the decision of ACC, members may kindly refer to Public Notice No. 23/2022 dated 26th June, 2022.
Members may kindly make a note of the above.
