Dubai customs yesterday added to the partnerships it has already announced this week by signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Aramex, a regional logistics specialist with operations throughout the globe.

The pact will see Aramex process customs declarations and complete its transactions through a ‘business to government (B2G)’ channel after structuring and linking its internal IT systems electronically with the Mirsal 2 system that Dubai Customs launched last year.

Once Aramex enters the declarations into its internal systems, they will be automatically transferred to Mirsal 2.

Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, Executive Director of Client Management Division at Dubai Customs, says the co-operation will have time and costs savings, as well as confidentiality and protection of information.

“Launching the B2G initiative comes as part of the Department’s continuous development of the e-services provided to the clients and in line with the corporate directives towards completing customs declarations electronically,” he says.

Hussein Hachem, CEO at Aramex MEA, insists the arrangement will translate into faster clearance procedures for its clients and a more secure, confidential process via e-signature and digital certificates.

“During the trial period, the number of cargo shipments cleared has doubled, and we’re certain that this channel will continue to provide value for our customers,” he says.
