WCO Releases an Upgraded New Version of the WCO Cargo Targeting System

13 noviembre 2020

The WCO Cargo Targeting System (WCO CTS) has completing an important phase in its ongoing development with the release of a new upgraded version of the system.

Over the past 3 years, with the support of United States Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program, the WCO has continuously improved the WCO CTS application culminating in the release of this latest enhanced version. At the same time the WCO has completed WCO CTS deployments to Maldives, Sri Lanka and Philippines, provided additional assistance to WCO CTS deployments in Chile, Georgia, Jamaica, Kenya and Ukraine and rolled out air cargo targeting capability to all user countries.

All countries will now be upgraded to the latest version of the WCO CTS which will ensure the highest levels of performance and security are maintained into the future. The most obvious change will be the introduction of a new user interface which gives the system a fresh new look and builds on its core values of effectiveness, ease of use and sustainability.

Mr. Pranab Kumar Das, the WCO Director of Compliance & Facilitation welcomed the upgrade of the WCO CTS saying “The WCO is committed to providing its Members with an effective, sustainable cargo risk assessment and targeting capability that meets the highest international standards. This new version of the WCO CTS demonstrates this commitment and will be welcomed by the growing number of countries implementing it.”

The WCO CTS is a cargo manifest risk assessment and targeting solution developed by the WCO for Customs administrations across the globe. It allows those adopting the solution to implement international best practice cargo risk assessment and targeting including key pillars of the WCO’s SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade. The WCO CTS has already been successfully implemented by many Customs Administrations in countries that vary widely in their size, level of economic development and cargo volumes.
