The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in collaboration with the World Bank, under the Accelerating Revenue Mobilization Reforms Program (ARMOR), has initiated the modalities for migration from Fast Track Regime to Fast Track 2.0.
This system aims to reward compliance and facilitate trade by admitting traders based on their adherence to regulations and contribution to trade in Nigeria.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the National Public Relations Officer of the Service, Chief Superintendent of Customs, Abdullahi Maiwada on Wednesday.
“By introducing Fast Track 2.0, the Nigeria Customs Service aims to streamline trade processes, promote compliance, and create a more efficient and rewarding environment for traders.
“When fully operational, FT 2.0 is expected to encourage traders to comply with Customs regulations and rules”, the statement read in part.
Maiwada further said that one of the main advantages of FT 2.0 is the potential for significant cost reductions associated with cargo handling and demurrage at the ports.
“Traders who are interested in taking advantage of this facility can access more information and apply through the website www.fasttrack.nigeriatradehub.gov.ng. Existing traders who are currently using the old Fast Track system are advised to apply to the new Fast Track 2.0 (FT 2.0)”, the statement added.
