Safe Transport Environment Project – FBR (STEP)


Objective of STE project which has adequately met was managing risk of cargo moving under customs control. It is essentially an enforcement support to anti-smuggling
activities in the country, occurring through commercial transit channels. TPL carried out research into this aspect deeper. An important objective of STE projects was to
have reconciliation of cargo entering a point and arriving to the destination. It is taking place in real-time basis. The scope of STE operations remained restricted to containerized Afghan Transit (AT) cargo.


In order to ensure availability and continuity of tracking and monitoring services adequate IT infrastructure has been maintained in TPL and a dedicated IT Team for maintaining Hardware and Software application.


An important output coming out of STE system is “Logistics Service Quality” provided by licensed Bonded Carriers. It is now measurable. Besides, overall efficiency, now service quality of each authorized Bonded Carrier is ascertainable to customs.

The analysis suggests that STE has enabled customs to use advanced risk management techniques now based on compliance measurement and supply chain analysis. Bonded Carrier’s compliance is now measurable, both in terms of efficiency and compliance to rules. This factor combined with other risk indicators like Customs Agents’ profile, smuggling prone commodities and value of goods can be used for selectivity and focus.


Logistics System Efficiency can be considerably improved. Customs may encourage and incentivize efficiency and service quality in logistics sector. Service standards and KPIs can now be set. KPIs cane be measured and monitored for each operator and overall.


We are committed to improving our services continuously, and have deployed TPL response teams nation-wide to support customs in enforcement of operations.
