‘Uploading’ flaw at port


Share post:

ASYCUDA World as a system has not been an issue for most of the cargo challenges that the Bridgetown Port Inc. has been dealing with.

Instead, it is the process of uploading the information that has containers backed up in the Port.

That is according to chairman of the Port, Senator Lisa Cummins, who was addressing the media following the launch of a mentorship programme at the Taxi Dispatch Centre at the Port yesterday.

“ASYCUDA World was implemented on September 9 in Barbados and we are comfortable and happy to accept that within the first few weeks or so, from the Customs Department, there were some teething challenges. . . . But within the first month or so, we were comfortable that with the exception of two main areas of the system itself, the system has been functioning extraordinarily well and even many of the users have been able to come back to us to say that it has improved the speed at which they’re doing business significantly in a shorter space of time,” she said.(RA)
