TradeMark East Africa Reports Massive Gains in Trade Efficiency through Single Window System

TradeMark East Africa (TMEA), a non-profit development organization focused on supporting trade and economic growth in the region, worked with officials in Rwanda to implement a Single Window System to more quickly clear cargo in 2012.  TMEA reports that since then, the time it takes to file and clear goods has dropped from 14 days to less than 1 day, while associated costs have dropped from Rwf 30,000 to Rwf 4,000.

Through swifter automated technology, the Single Window connects trade industry filers with multiple government agencies that need to clear goods at the border. This is a commendable Customs modernization effort in an up and coming regional trade hub, that will hopefully continue to yield economic gains for Rwanda and its neighbors.

The United States, which has nearly 50 government agencies with equities in international trade, is currently in the process of developing its Single Window system.
