THERE will be no openings for over 9-tonne box trucks under the E-lock system, according to an official of the Department of Transport Planning.
The launching of the Phase 1 Logistic Surveillance (E-lock) System on containers and box trucks commenced at Thilawa Special Economic Zone in Yangon on 19 September.
Phase 1 of the E-Lock system will begin on the Yangon Thilawa SEZ-Myawady route. Then, it will proceed to Yagon-Myawady, Yangon-Mandalay and Mandalay-Muse routes under Phase II.
The system will provide real-time monitoring of cargo movements, track and detect the activity and whereabouts of the trucks, ensure safe and secured logistics and smooth trade flow, minimize cargo delays, reduce the loss risks of the goods and save certain fees.
The E-Lock system will also support the ASEAN Customs Transit system to facilitate the movement of cargo across the borders of ASEAN countries. It can also raise the State’s revenue and combat illicit trade.
