PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has introduced a new software system at ports, drastically cutting container charges and clearance time, a news report said on Thursday.

The National Single Window (NSW) software system, which would benefit Afghan importers, has been unveiled by the the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).

Under the system, the charges of one container at a port will be slashed from $734 to almost half. The system is in place in more than 70 countries around the globe, The News reported.

With financial support from the US, the system will link 44 ministries, departments and regulators within the country besides connections with regional countries, including Afghanistaninfo-icon, China and Iran.

Scheduled to become operational by end of 2019, the system will be enforced in phases over the next five years.
